      • Students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. In other words, conduct yourself as you want the students to conduct themselves within your classroom. Be sure to ask questions when clarification is needed. I will assume each student understands if I am not asked for clarification or to provide further assistance with a project.

      • All reading assignment discussions will be conducted on the Edmodosite. Blogging will all be posted on Kidblog. When participating in a discussion or providing blog post responses, each student must post their own reflection and respond to another student's post. Upon completing both steps, a student will receive full credit for completing that reading project. Do not be suprised if questions about reflections and comments are asked upon completion of original postings.
