ONLINE CLASSROOM MARCH 23 to MAY 31
Grade 12s Attending Post-Secondary in September → West Scarborough Community Legal Services is inviting interested students and community members to a webinar on the topic, “Canada Student Emergency Benefits and Pandemic Pay”. This webinar will be held next Monday on June 1st, 2020 from 2:00PM-3:00PM. This public legal education webinar is open for anyone to join.
Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Please share this with any other students and community members who may be interested in participating.
As per the TDSB Director’s memo: … “However, student work that was submitted prior to March 13 or was not submitted prior to this date may be submitted by the student or handed in by the student to be evaluated (i.e., overdue evaluations prior to March 13). This mark will be used if it improves the student’s mark.”
Remember, any work submitted during the school closure, be it an evaluation or portfolio, can only improve your mark on 13 March, not lower it. This means that opting out of work assigned during the school closure will not lower your mark, but will set back your academic development.
MESSAGE TO STUDENTS -- Hi everyone, I hope this message finds you healthy and that you enjoyed your break as best as possible during uncertain and unprecedented times. I found outside time really grounding and helpful. The consistent message from the TDSB since schools closed has been that learning and course delivery will continue as best as possible, and for my 12s, that you will graduate.
Ultimately, my main message is that I am here to support you in finishing your year. Remember to practice all of the recommended protocols set out by public health in order to move through this pandemic as quickly as possible. If we all do our part, we will return back to our full lives much quicker. Remember to support each other and to keep your physical and mental health as your top priority.
To that end, I designed the online classroom for all of my courses right here on the homepage (BELOW). I have set daily "office hours" when students can reach me for direct support via email@example.com.
Remember, the protocol for teacher-student communication is to be conducted through our @student.tdsb.on.ca & @tdsb.on.ca email addresses. Please follow this protocol.
DAILY OFFICE HOURS
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.

BELOW IS A COPY OF THE 8 STEPS and MARK BREAKDOWN
This week, students will be working with SOURCE 1 → Episode 1 of the Documentary Meltdown: The Secret History of the Global Financial Collapse. Scroll down the unit page to the section titled SOURCE 1. You will find the link to the documentary (remember, you are only required to watch episode 1, approx. the first 45 minutes, although the whole doc. is fascinating). As you watch the episode, set up notes in the format pictured below. Leave space to make notes under each box as you watch. Each box corresponds to a chapter/location in the story of the 2008 financial crisis.
From your notes under each location in the episode, you will be writing a bottom line statement that captures the most critical point covered in that chapter. Put another way, what crucial piece of information did each chapter add to story of the crisis? This activity is called Bottom Line Up Front. It will help you reconstruct the crisis in an 8-point chronological story. Remember, the 10 Term Glossary of financial terms is very important to review, as these 10 terms are used throughout the episode.
This week, students will be working with SOURCE 3 → SHORT FILM The Crisis of Credit of Visualized. Scroll down the unit page to the section titled SOURCE 3.
You will find the link to the short film and some supporting notes. As you watch the short film, set up notes in the format pictured below. Leave space to make notes under each box as you watch. Each box corresponds to a key player in the story of the 2008 financial crisis.
