Ms. Jockisch  - Virtual Room 91 - Frequently Asked Questions FAQs

 

What is Core?

CORE consists of 3 periods in which you will learn about reading, writing, and social studies. 

 

How can I prepare for class? 

  • ALWAYS remember that we are ALL new at this and distance learning is a new skill we are all learning. When you are learning something for the first time, you will make mistakes.

  • As Albert Einstein said, “Anyone who has never made a mistake, has never tried anything new”

  • A mistake is not a bad thing UNLESS you do not learn from it and try to do things differently the next time.

 

On Mondays… 

On Mondays, you will have asynchronous learning, meaning you will not have live, whole class Zoom lessons with me. Instead, you will need to check the Virtual Classroom to see what lessons and assignments to work on during the school day. Each lesson and assignment will still be guided by me, it just maybe through a recorded video! You will still be able to ask questions, get help, and collaborate with classmates on Mondays. 

 

If you are in the AM section   Tuesdays-Fridays…   This is Blue Core A and Gold Core A

  1. Check Google Classroom for the daily hyperdoc that will tell you the day’s agenda and provide you with the links you’ll need for the day.

  2. Once it’s time for Zoom, be sure you have your independent reading book next to you and are ready to share what you’re reading every day!

  3. Check School Loop and Google Classroom before class to see if you have completed all assignments.

  4. Be sure your device is charged or plugged in to avoid getting disconnected during our online sessions.

  5. Have any materials I have given you within reach (packets, folder, notebook, etc.)

  6. Have something to write with.

  7. Put your cell phone away and out of sight. 

  8. When we are done with our live session, you will need to check the daily Virtual Classroom to see what assignments to work on for the remainder of the school day. 

 

If you are in the PM section Tuesdays-Fridays…  This is Blue Core B and Gold Core B

  1. Start Core class by checking the daily Virtual Classroom slide deck located on Google Classroom. You will also want to check School Loop to make sure you have done all of your prior assignments. The daily Virtual Classroom is where you will find directions on what to work on before joining the class live on Zoom later in the day! 

  2. Once it’s time for Zoom, be sure you have your independent reading book next to you and are ready to share what you’re reading every day!

  3. Check School Loop prior to class to see if you have completed all assignments.

  4. Be sure your device is charged or plugged in to avoid getting disconnected during our online sessions.

  5. Have any materials I have given you within reach (packets, folder, notebook, etc.)

  6. Have something to write with.

  7. Put your cell phone away and out of sight. 

 

How much homework will I have? 

  1. You are expected to read at least 30 minutes every day. You are also expected to bring the book you are reading to class each day for “Status of the Class.” Status of the Class is a check-in system where I will ask you to show me your book and tell me the page you are currently on. There is no reading log at the beginning of the year. 

  2. Although we will be starting the school year virtually, we will still work hard during our class time together. If you put in your best effort and stay on task during the school day, you will have minimal homework outside of school hours. In most cases, whatever you do not finish during class hours will be assigned as homework. 

 

What do I do if I’m absent? 

  1. Check the daily Virtual Classroom for each day you were absent. This will always be located on Google Classroom. 

  2. Ask a classmate or two to help you figure out what you missed.

  3. Once you have completed the above, feel free to email me to get help or ask clarifying questions.

 

What should I know about grades?

  1. Grades will be updated regularly through School Loop. I encourage you to check School Loop daily!

  2. You will get 1 grade for all 3 periods of Core.

  3. Remember, we all learn differently and have a plethora of strengths! If you ever need help, do not hesitate to reach out to me!

 

How do I contact you? 

  1. The best way for students to contact me is through the Loop Mail function in School Loop. Just type in my name (Jockisch) and my email will pop up. I try to respond as quickly as possible to all emails!

  2. The best way for parents or guardians to contact me is through my school email: djockisch@orinda.k12.ca.us 

 

Communication is key! I know that things happen and can sometimes get in the way of school work. If you cannot complete a homework assignment, you are better off letting me know before you come to class by emailing me. By sending me an email, it lets me know you tried to complete the assignment, but for some reason, you were not able to. This shows me that you care about your schoolwork and are taking it seriously. I am much more likely to understand your situation if I know about it before you come to class!
