Mr. Crockett, Grade 8 Social Studies
Peacock Middle School

1) Textbook - http://go.hrw.com/gopages/ss.html

a.    Access this site by using your USERNAME & PASSWORD (I will give this to you the first week of school and you should write it down in your assignment notebook, S.S. folder, S.S. notebook, etc.)

b.    Holt Online Textbook with helpful Quizzes/Tests/Resources

 

2) Edmodo - https://www.edmodo.com/

a.    Edmodo is a social learning network where students have access to their teacher and the students within that specific class. Edmodo is a safe online environment because the site is only open to students and educators. The site specifically states: “Edmodo provides teachers and students with a secure and easy way to post classroom materials, share links and videos, and access homework, grades, and school notices.”

b.    If you would like more information about what Edmodo is, visit edmodo.com and click on the video What Is Edmodo?

c.     The first week of school your child signed up and joined the class/group I set up for each of my classes with a special code I shared with them in class.  They also received a code for YOU to use when you sign up to view your child’s profile.  Your special code is:_________________.  Please join and see what we are doing! Also, I will post the 8th grade homework for the week on here for you and your child. My page is Edmodo.com/jcrockett

 

3) Remind 101 - http://remind101.com/

a.    From their website: “Remind101 was built, in conjunction with educators, to solve communication obstacles between teachers, students and parents. Across all grade levels and institution types, Remind101 is a safe and simple communication solution to help teachers extend their classrooms.” 

b.    All phone numbers (mine and your child’s) are not seen and is used as a mass text.  The number assigned to me from Remind 101 is 630-300-3394.  Your child will join the class/group I set up for each of my classes with a special code I shared with them in class.  I will use this for daily bell ringers, quizzes, and assessments.  Also, I may send home a text the night or two before a test/field trip to remind them.  If you would also like to receive a TEXT from me about up and coning things, please text that number above and enter “ae4aa” in the message box to join my parent group! 

 

4) PollEv.com - http://www.polleverywhere.com/

a.    From their website: “On the surface, Poll Everywhere is a simple application that works well for live audiences using mobile devices like phones.   The poll that is embedded within the presentation or web page will update in real for time.”  I will use this to survey the class and as an assessment.  My Polls can be accessed at PollEv.com/crockett.

 

5) jcrockett@itasca.k12.il.us

a.    Feel free to email me in you ever have a question (students/parents).  I may not be able to get right back to you during the day and I am a coach, but I will respond to you as soon as I can.  Also, a friendly reminder for my students, if a paper is due and your printer "breaks" the night before, you may email it to me before 8 am.
