For my Dear Students that cannot log into Parenting yet. I have the following assignments for you to do, If you do not have headphones the transcripts are provided under the videos.
Hi! I am Mrs. Steigerwald • I am soo sorry you can not get into your course yet! Have no fear you will not be left behind, in fact you can get a “leg up” by getting as many of your “labs” done before you even get in ;-) • Here is how! • Follow the link • Watch the video(or read the transcripts) picture on the next page) • Answer the questions and save them for when you can get in to the class to submit them.
I scrolled down a little beneath the video and the tab for the transcript is the 4th one over.
How do I submit? • The first Module/Chapter has 3 labs • All three labs should be in one assignment so there is a total of 15 Questions and Answers for Chapter 1 • When you are able to log into Parenting you will THEN submit it under the assessment tabs. • Keep it in a safe place until then,… a thumb drive would be very useful ;-)
