• WHILE YOU'RE AT HOME due to COVID19, I will be posting lessons on my new Canvas page. Use this link to access Canvas https://cisd.instructure.com/courses/7932/assignments/s  Please complete the lessons as they ARE for a grade!  If you have any issues with them, message me in Canvas or send me an email to arogers@cisd.org.  After completing our lessons, if you'd like something else to do, just hop on over to our Link Library page.  Don't forget you can access your Career Cruising account with your Username & Password.  Remember, it's set up with your school computer login (and some had to add the last 4 digits of their phone number) and the password is your Student ID#.  There's a Journal in Career Cruising, you could be journaling about your COVID19 experience!  If you have any issues accessing your account, please EMAIL ME at arogers@cisd.org.  My "office hours" are 2pm - 5pm.  However, I check email throughout the day and on weekends also.  In addition to Career Cruising, don't forget the Pop-A-Job website which you all liked plus you can browse career info from there,too.  Don't let your mind go to mush while we're all housebound, keep on learning!  Practice typing a business letter and send it to me! Or just keep your keyboarding skills sharp by practicing typing on Nitrotype!  We were supposed to be starting the Business Email Unit so you could compose and email me a letter if you'd like.  I hope you are all well and following all precautions so that we can move past this sickly time and return to school soon!  Take Care & Keep In Touch!
