Mr. Michael Landers
COVID-19 "State of Emergency" Plans
I provide learning opportunities through our "Learning Management System" called Canvas. This can be accessed on the HOME page of the MPHS website by clicking on the Canvas icon near the top right of the page (below the school address). All students have logged in to this system already and it has been functioning well.
I also have two-way communication among my students and parents with the email listed below.
I have an action plan for students with limited access to internet or technology. By the start of next week, I will be reaching out (by email and phone) to ANY student from whom I have not heard. I will work to get hard copies of learning materials to these students.
Email me at email@example.com if you have any questionsI teach AP English Language and Composition first period, (planning second period), Honors English I third period, and Honors English I fourth period.It is always good to read, and if you are looking for extra help and/or extra credit (with advance notice), I highly encourage reading news stories written at a higher level than most local papers. Go to the New York Times by clicking HERE and browse the categories on the top of the page or look at the headlines on the main page. Do the following, in your journal:
- Label the page in your journal: "NY Times Story Analysis" and label it in your table of contents.
- Choose a story / article that interests you and write its title on the page in your journal.
- Read the story carefully, taking notes where necessary.
- Identify the author's PURPOSE (and write it on the page in your journal)
- Summarize the story in 5 sentences.
- COMMENT on the story (your thoughts, opinions)
