I wanted to leave you a brief note here on my website on the off chance that you check it at some point this week. We won't be seeing each other for a few weeks at school. Things are changing rapidly in the world and we are living in a very historic moment. I'm not sure what's going to come next in terms of school, AP tests, assignments, credits, or anything else for that matter. I'm just as concerned and curious as you are about COVID-19 and what it means for the next few months.
As soon as I can, I'll update you via email with everything you need to know that concerns my classes. I'll also post everything here so that you can come to a central place to get info.
In the meantime, take care of yourselves, your friends, your family, and the others that need you. Don't over react, but also don't under react. This is a very serious global situation that we should treat with the appropriate level of gravity. If you're unsure how serious this is, start reading about what's happened in Italy - it's the first transparent case of what happens if a healthcare system is overrun by cases of this virus.
For now, your assignment is to just learn and be informed. I've taught all year how important it is to find, verify, and analyze information. This is a very important moment in your lives and in our history; it's time to put those skills and information finding/evaluation skills to use.
Let me know if you have any questions, I am still checking my work email.
