How to Use the MIC -(Monthly Instructional Calendar)
Monthly Instructional Calendars are sent for each content area via email on the last Friday of the month. Please check "file share" in your OLS. Open, print or save to desktop. Then each day complete the items listed for the day. If student is absent, move it to the next day as make up work, or student completes after hours. Organization Tip – Create 4 notebooks – ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Print the monthly MIC. Place in the front of the notebook along with tabs for class notes and OLS work. Then as student completes an assignment, mark off the MIC.
