Welcome!

PLEASE, IF POSSIBLE, BRING IN A REAM OF COPY PAPER! I WOULD BE QUITE GRATEFUL… 🙂

Welcome back to The Beacon School for the start of the 2016-17 school year and welcome to Blackboarddreams.com, our class website!  I am very excited to give e-life to a vision born a few years ago.  Then, I envisioned using the web as a meaningful extension of my classroom where there would be resources aplenty and a communication hub. Here, you and your family can access the following: homework assignments, class forums, updates on the happenings and direction of the class, complementary materials, writing and research resources, exemplars, a link back to the Beacon homepage, and so much more!  

  1. This weekend you should register for the class website, Blackboarddreams.com. Please do so by midnight on Sunday at which time the site will be closed to registration. To do this, you must scroll to the bottom of the homepage and click “Register.” Your username should be your Full Name (First and Last).  Do not use nicknames and leave A SPACE between your first and last name. Your password will be emailed to you at which point you can change it if you would like.  I also suggest you take a moment to familiarize yourself with the website! Don’t forget to bookmark your course page! So, if you are in my sophomore class, bookmark the sophomore page. 
  2. Sophomores and Existential students, you must print your class syllabus and bring it into class Tuesday! Check the “documents” section in the sidebar on your course page. The syllabus will detail supplies for the class, among many other things.

AGAIN, PLEASE, IF POSSIBLE, BRING IN A REAM OF COPY PAPER! I WOULD BE QUITE GRATEFUL… 🙂
