Google Classroom Directions and Expectations
1: I can create a login to Google classroom. 19D
2: I can use Google maps to create directions from my house to school. 19D
3: I can use advanced Google map features (this lesson may extend into the next class depending upon time). 19D
Activity 1: Create a login to Google classroom.
NOTE: Go to gmail.com and log in using your email address (your username + @raypec.org
example: firstname.lastname@example.org) AND your login password.
You cannot get into Google classroom unless you have done that.
Step 1: Google Classroom (Click Google Classroom to link to it)
Step 2: Click + symbol beside your email address on right. Click JOIN (or Join Class).
Enter code your teacher gives you.
The class stream opens. ALWAYS use the ABOUT at top of the page to learn more about new directions, etc.
NOTE: This is a good time to check your neighbor to the right and left and make sure they are able to log in as well. Did they log in to their gmail? Did they type in the correct class code, etc.? Always BE KIND and PATIENT when helping.
Step 3: Click START TOUR to learn more about the setup. If it doesn't appear, don't worry about it and skip to Step 4. (2-5 minutes)
Browse through the information and click any links as instructed. You will learn how to turn in your assignment here at a later lesson. Once you have logged in, you may come back to Google Classroom at any time (at home or school).
Step 4: Practice #1 important POSTING Internet guideline to remember: (2-5 minutes)
Whenever you post on a page (ANY FORMAT), it needs to be related to the topic. Do NOT post unless directed to do so by teacher when in Google Classroom. Think about it this way. If you were talking to someone about your favorite video game and they just switched subjects and started talking about food, it just doesn't make sense. Make sure that your posts are appropriate (don't say anything you would be embarrassed for your grandparents to hear or read). Don't say anything negative or hurtful.
What happens if you do not follow the correct etiquette (rules for nice behavior) when posting in Mrs. Raukar's Google Classroom (or any other teacher's Google Classroom)?
Consequences: Lose Posting privileges for a week (1st offense)
2nd offense: Lose posting for longer period of time, parents are notified.
3rd offense: Permanent posting privilege (or a semester) loss depending upon offense, office writeup, etc. as deemed necessary.
PRACTICE POSTING using the rules above in the posting section on Google Classroom.
What is your favorite food? Please post twice...one in the QUESTION and the same answer in the ANNOUNCEMENTS. I know this is the same question, but I think one Post option that is a QUESTION only shows up between student and teacher? The announcement version will show all posts...I'm hoping. These are new features on Google Classroom this year. Will you please post in both places so we can find out for sure? Thanks!
Activity 2: Use Google maps to create walking and driving directions from your house to school. (NOTE: Refer to the PowerPoint presentation for further directions.
Step 1: Go to Google My Maps (note: you need to be logged in to Google email to use
this) (If title link doesn't work type in https://www.google.com/maps/d/).
Step 2: Click CREATE NEW MAP.
Step 3: Click ADD DIRECTIONS. Type Eagle Glen Intermediate and click the correct address as it pops up.
Step 4: Go to untitled layer at bottom. In circle B, type in your street address and city, state.
Step 5: Click Untitled layer to name it as "My Directions to School" (or something similar).
Click ADD DIRECTIONS (looks like an curved arrow).
Step 6: Click the 3 dots beside the title and click STEP-BY-Step Directions.
Step 7: Find out who is furthest from school, closest to school. (Animal cracker treats for winners).
Step 8: Explore using the toolbar on map. Try drawing lines, etc.
Step 9: MORE EXPLORE. Go to
https://www.instantstreetview.com/ Type in your address to see if your home is pictured.
Try some other famous locations as well.
Go back to Google Classroom and answer the Street view question when you are finished.
You may edit your answers for this post (you did not have those options for the first post).
Remember! Follow the etiquette rules (polite behavior)...stay to the subject. If you comment on someone else's post, make sure the comments are positive and supportive, you don't have to agree with their statement, but you need to POLITELY and RESPECTFULLY state your point.
Here is the question as posted on your Google Classroom.
Now that you have checked out Street View, what kind of effect do you feel this information/photos could have on you? What is good about it? What is not so good about it? Do you think they should be able to do this? Why or Why not?
