Ms. Christina McConnell

During Quarter 1, I will be establishing foundational skills so that students will be able to ease into content.

We will cover the following:

  • Student goals (written in friendly terms) with success criteria
  • binder organization
  • scholar dollars (token economy with extra credit)
  • presentations/powerpoints
  • policies, routines, and expectations
  • effective team skills
  • Cornell Notes (including how to write a summary)
  • Grit
  • DOK
  • textbook navigation
  • Microsoft Teams (PowerPoints and handout access)
  • GRIT

    My office hours are arranged as needed, so please ask for help if you do not understand something. I upload all our PowerPoint lessons in Microsoft Teams along with any assignments.  If you need to reach me, use REMIND text messaging or my school email:
