This download contains files that may be printed and copied or used in 1:1 or flipped classes. Use whichever version fit best with your class. The other version remain yours in case you ever need to use them (in case your school makes the jump to 1:1 classes sometime in the future or if you have a student whose IEP requires a hard copy of assignments instead of digital ones).

You may put the materials in this file on a site for STUDENT USE that RESTRICTS access like Google Drive, Google Classroom, OneDrive, Edmodo, Blackboard, etc. where students are either invited via an email address or log in with a user name and password. IT MAY NOT BE UPLOADED TO A CLASS WEBSITE UNLESS THE SITE IS RESTRICTED TO STUDENTS WITH A LOGIN AND PASSWORD.
