WELCOME TO MY CLASS
I hope you are excited to get started and are ready to do some learning. We have experienced some difficult changes, but I am confident that we will all get through this with each other's help and patience.
As you may already be aware, we are no longer using Edulinc as our learning platform. Instead, we are going to use Avenue https://avenue.ca/ . If you are a new student, please make sure to contact me so that I can send you account and website instructions. Avenue looks very similar to Edulinc, but some of the main differences are that it will be able to work better on any device as well as be able to store more information, and function faster than before. Please read the information below carefully!
Here are the main differences for our classes:

The morning class is called:
CLB 6/7/8 Morning Reading and Writing Virtual Class and the afternoon is called:
After you login, click on the link for your class and join the session. The morning class will start at 9AM as normal and the afternoon class will start at 12:30 as normal. We will follow the same classroom rules as if we are at the MCC. On Monday, we will practice how this works and I will review procedures for the class and portfolio requirements. If you cannot attend class at the regular time because you are managing your family or a job, make sure to view the recordings of the class which are right below where you would join a session.
I have made separate areas for your task instructions and your task postings. Each class has its own areas. Make sure to click on the correct area for your class.

The afternoon classes' areas are called:
I will teach you first, then you will do the tasks after on your own and post them. Please post your work in a timely manner so that I can review your work and give you feedback.
I will conduct assessments as I normally would in class. All assessments will be scheduled on specific dates and you will have a time limit to complete and submit them. If you wish to complete your level, you must complete your portfolio as you normally would if you were at the MCC. If you have any questions at all, please make sure to ask. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
