COVID-19 Out of school Procedure: World History 1

Hello Students and Parents,

                As we continue with our at-home education, I’ve received further instructions and clarifications in regards to how to proceed with at home instruction and how to structure the remainder of the year. As you likely have been informed, teachers have been directed to grade work collected for the remainder of the 9 weeks in order to award a pass/fail grade for the end of this semester. In order to accomplish this, I have scheduled out the remainder of our school year. This syllabus is attached to this email. All assignments will be available through the web program Formative. In order to reach this website, follow these directions.

  1. Go to
  2. Join using one of the following classroom codes, depending on your class.
    1. A3 = XLVY8A
    2. B1 = 3DJBHK
    3. B3 = HXFZ8H
    4. Bridge = EVLZCR
  3. Log in using Clever (your username and password will be your standard rcps password, they same as you use to log into your laptop), Gmail, Microsoft, or create a new account with an email address and password of your choice.
  4. Write down your username and password so you do not lose it!

I will be uploading a new formative every other school day, following the attached syllabus. ALL ASSIGNMENTS will be delivered and graded through this website. For students who do not have access to internet, paper packets have been organized for pick up at the school. The online system is certainly the easiest to use and will result in faster grading, so be sure to consider taking advantage of Cox’s internet offer if you have not done so already.

I’m sure further directions will be issued before the year is over, and I will be sure to pass those instructions and changes along as I receive them. Please be sure to complete all assignments promptly  to create as little backlog as possible for the end of the year. I have designed all lessons to take less than 30 minutes, and answers will be easily found in provided notes.

If you have questions, please reach out with them. My email is [email protected]. I will respond as soon as I can.

Stay safe, we’ll get through this together,

Rob Michel
