      • My student website used with this class.

      • Use this as an example if you wish to build your own website. DO NOT just copy the links I have on that site. You will need to use ctrl-shift copying to just copy the text, and then link to your own copies of purchased materials, and you can copy any of the things I post here on my portfolio to your own Google Drive.

          • Materials marked with a *** cannot be published here. You must purchase them yourself and put them on your own Google Drive.

      • Material that I cannot share publicly is locked and can only being accessed from within the district. Requests for access are ignored, and will never be granted. But, when you view the site you can see where I placed materials from my Unit Outlines listed here.

      • If you purchase the materials that I list, you can recreate this course and follow my Teacher Guides and Outlines
