Hello everyone! My name is Robert Green, this will be my sixth year teaching starting in January. I graduated December 15, 2014 with my Bachelor's in Middle Grades Mathematics 5-9 from Florida SouthWestern State College (formerly known as Edison State College). I hold Florida certification in Middle Grades Mathematics 5-9 and Mathematics 6-12 in addition to my ESOL endorsement. I have taught Algebra 1, Algebra 1 Honors, Intensive Mathematics, Financial Algebra, Liberal Arts Math 1, Math for College Readiness, and Advanced Topics in Mathematics at Island Coast High School in Cape Coral for three and a half years. After leaving Island Coast, I taught M/J Mathematics 1, M/J Mathematics 1 Advanced, and M/J Mathematics 2 at Punta Gorda Middle for a year. Finally, I decided to return to the high school and taught Algebra 1 and Liberal Arts Math 1 at Charlotte High School. This will be my second year at Charlotte starting the 2019-2020 school year.
I have lived in Charlotte County my entire life. I graduated from Port Charlotte High School in 2007. I am glad I have the opportunity to serve my community as a teacher. As a personal note, I enjoy watching and reading science fiction. My favorite movie is Star Trek (2009). I am also a Japanese enthusiast. I enjoy watching anime and reading manga in both English and Japanese. When I am not busy grading papers, I enjoy the company ofmy dog Princess or spending time with my friends.
It is very important to have your student check his/her Google Classroom for homework due dates, notes he or she missed, and other important information for class. Below is an example announcement I post in Google Classroom on a daily basis.
As for what students see in the classroom, I post the same information on the whiteboard on a daily basis. It is the student's responsibility to write down the assignment homework in his/her planner or to check Google Classroom.
As a reminder, homework is due on Sundays at 11:59 PM. I open up the homework on Monday of each week and give the students a FULL week to do their homework. I do this for several reasons including, but limited to students who participate in sport or extra curriculuar activities, to meet the need for students who need extended time on assignments, and for other unexpected emergencies.
CK-12 (Lesson HW)
It is assigned on Monday and due on Sunday at 11:59 PM. Starting Quarter 3, students will lose a point for every three days it is late. Late assignments will not be accepted 9th day of being late. It will remain a zero.
Algebra Nation (Reenforcement HW)
Students will have two weeks to complete each set of assigned videos and Check Your Understanding assignments. For example, I would assign 4 videos and their respective Check Your Understanding assignments on Monday, October 7th and it would be due Monday, October 21st at 11:59 PM. This is to reenfource lessons I have already taught. If your student does not complete them by the assigned due date, then it is a zero; however, they are still expected to complete the videos they missed since I will periodically check their Algebra Nation workbooks.
Algebra Nation Video - The video length depends on the learning expert they choose. Videos typically run from about 10 minutes to 25 minutes depending on how much the student wants the lesson explained to them.
Check Your Understanding - At the end of each lesson, there will be a short mini quiz of three questions. Students can take this over as many times as they want. I will take the highest grade.
Once the students complete the entire section in Algebra Nation, I will assign the Test Yourself! Practice Tool. It is another mini quiz of 10 questions. Again, the student can take this as many times as they want. I will take the highest score.
If your student is absent, it is his or her responsibility to check Google Classroom for the notes, foldables, handouts, and homework he or she missed. The reason I upload everything in Google Class is to prevent your student from falling behind in class. If I can find a good video that helps with the notes we took in class, I will include it in the post for that day. This was all stated in either my syllabus and/or the family newsletter I sent home at the beginning of the year. A copy of both can be found on my teacher website. The newsletter is on the homepage and the syllabus will be found on the course page for your student.
Starting 2nd Quarter, students with an IEP, a 504, or an ELL accommodations needing extended time will receive a pass to give to their non-core subject teacher to come back and finish a quiz or test. It will be the student's responsibility to hand the pass to his or her teacher to request to come back to finish his or her quiz or test. It is up to the non-core subject teacher if the student can or cannot come during that period to make up the test or quiz. As stated in my syllabus, I prefer students to come and make-up exams before or after school. A picture of the pass that students receive is located below.
