JENNIFER SEMMES OAK PARK MIDDLE SCHOOL ELA 7
Student Course Resources
Please note: All daily work, homework, makeup work, and extra credit instructions are located under "HOMEWORK" on the left.
This year, students will be working in the CANVAS digital platform IN ADDITION TO workbooks and various online resources for our class content. The online options are both for in-class students and students who are unable to attend class in person. Students may also do their homework and makeup work via Canvas and/or the "homework" button on my website. There is a clickable interactive calendar under, "homework." Please note, you may need to hold down the "ctrl" button on your keyboard when clicking links.
Calendar and classroom communications take place within Canvas, BB COMMS, and email, where detailed assignment information is shared with students and parents.
While parents do not have DIRECT access to Canvas, students have accounts which can be accessed from home via LAUNCHPAD, a single-sign-on provider.
