  • Hello visitors! Welcome to Mr Herridge's Online Classroom!

    **Always contact me on MS Teams chat during your assigned class period so I can keep accurate attendence and prove your presence during this remote learning experience.
    Due to the extension of our time out of the building Peoria High along with all schools in the state will be 
    participating in the state requested "Remote Learning" approach to ensure that learning does indeed continue.
        I will be providing assignments that will focus on topics we have previously discussed in class as well as new and
        subject progressive material, but these assignments will be new and provide enrichment on the " bigger" ideas
        presented by the topic.
       Assignments may be compatible to previous assignments and we will be able to use them not only as enrichment 
       exercises and also as "added" points for quarter 3. Yes, these can help your grade from Q-3, but not in any way
       affect your grade in a negative way!
    -On-Line Learning Students: Everything is being run through Mr. Zevnic. Check his site. If you have questions
     email me at charles.herridge@psd150.org.
    -U.S. History and Mass Media/Production Class: Check MS Teams site daily. We will be meeting using MSTeam.,
     (log in info below) 
     Be sure you monitor the schedule as we are on a "rotation". 
    ** We will be using assignments from Newseum ED at times. You may need to sign up for Newseum ED when you get to the assignment. This a free service.
