Tips On How Students Can Be Organized For Online Learning Pdf
Aside from having an active Facebook and Google account for socializing and following news from your classmates, here are some pointers you can use to help you streamline your PPDs for online learning.
Good grammar is something in which you strive to be efficient at. However, occasionally your usage of grammar can get in the way of being efficient. While there are some grammar rules that everyone should know, there are some that need to be broken down. Not only are breaking them broken, but with the cloud computing that we all use, grammar can be crammed in a Word document to make the lesson stick.
Below are a few tips that have worked for me in managing the grammar I need in a PPD.
#1: Select the actual sentence.
As we can see above, we can quickly see that the initial sentence of “I read Susan’s article,” is one that I copied and pasted from our fact-checking PPD into an online PPD. This saves time! At the top of the page, I have included a couple of bullets that I had included in the original PPD but will now be added in the PPD as well.
#2: Unlink all formatting.
Since you are using a cloud version of this lesson, you will need to use different fonts to coordinate with the online page. However, there are many webpages that have formatting that make it look like the words are placed just so in order to make the word count. This is the main reason that people move fonts back and forth: simply to have fonts sized just right. So to prevent this formatting from placing words in the wrong way, use an HTML tool like Designer Orchid to narrow down the size of fonts so that each word counts properly. Also, keep font sizes constant throughout the PPD.
#3: Switch to modern styles.
Many times, we don’t think before copying and pasting a PPD as we are getting things done in the moment. Often times we think that we are saving time by simply copying and pasting, but in reality, all we are doing is moving the cursor across a screen with our mouse. More often than not, editing a PPD will take several moments while you are copying the changes. This is why you should often change what you are using (or what font you are using) to stick to modern styles. Also, look to the top for clarity and get rid of distracting images and fonts. When possible, stick to images that are a size larger than what the same words may fit in your PPD.
#4: How to abbreviate.
Have you noticed how a lot of our culture uses acronyms in everyday tasks and conversations? Have you noticed how acronyms rarely work in traditional PPDs? They tend to be not only awkward, but almost unproductive in the PPD because they will be cut off just as soon as they are used. Even worse is when you need to abbreviate a sentence, but just add the word THEN and let your experience go the way of letter E instead of the way of X and the letter R. This is quite a common mistake people tend to make. My good friend John always found it hilarious when I would say “I GOT TO GET THAT LOG IN” as opposed to “I GOT A COUPLE.PLEASE GUESS.”
#5: Know when to say “no thanks.”
The most important thing to remember is that you should not edit your PPD once you feel comfortable with it. Not only will this give you a lot of confidence, but it will help keep you on track and stick to what you have already put into the PPD. Another tip that I have learned is that when you have your general problems with grammar, it will benefit you to share the details with someone so that they can help you. However, I personally have the best feedback from family and a few friends.
Of course, you cannot just open up your keyboard and do a word-for-word copy and paste. As teachers, our time is limited and we do not have the extra time to spend editing even minor edits. Not to mention that there are language experts that have opinions on grammar that need to be spoken. So always, always, always talk with your guidance counselor, your parents, or any other experts that may have your best interest at heart. In this world, we need to stand together against each other, even if we will disagree on grammar. Try to spend some time with someone you trust and then talk to them about your opinion on grammar before you move on to your next mistake.
