Welcome to Mrs. Varland's Class Website!
Until May 1 we will be doing distance learning in the Mat Su School District. For my classes, which include English 1 and Cinema as Art, we will be using Google Classroom as a digital "landing spot" for our learning. Assignments will be posted on Google Classroom on Mondays and conversations will be started there throughout the week related to the assignments. Students will need to participate in the discussions as part of the class. For English 1, we will have 10 or 15 minute Zoom meetings daily to touch base and discuss what we are learning in a face to face way.
While this coronavirus has changed many things about how we are living life currently, students' education is still important and I strongly believe we will be able to give students a good education in this capacity for however long it is necessary. Students, I would rather see all of you in person, but I am confident we can make this work and still enjoy our classes together.
