Where to find your course outlines and work for the year in each class

On our google site:

https://sites.google.com/a/hornby.school.nz/visarts/
Book mark this if you haven't already.


If you hover over the NCEA Visual Art levels' 1 - 3 button, you get to see the course outlines drop down. you can select to see one of those there. 


Otherwise, if you want your class page, click on the blue tab directly. it takes you here:


You should all know what line you are in by now. Clicking on the correct line, will take you to your own class resources, including our shared google sheet, which also has your blog addresses on it. Because of the nature of google sites at this point, unless you have editing permissions for the whole page. you will only be able to VIEW this sheet from here. However, you do have it in your google drive in 'shared with me'. 


This is where all the feedback we have talked through in class should be recorded. It means you can always go back to it. Now that you know how to find it, I would like you to make sure you are always actively using it.

Logo: What is it?
