This website has been created so that you can review what we have done during the day and it will also provide electronic versions of handouts that are given out in class. You can use this to keep your notes in good order and for missed notes when you are absent from class. Power Points used in class may be accessed on ACADEMIC WORKSPACE as is detailed below. 
NOTE: I try to update the site on a WEEKLY basis. 

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS FOR LARGER FILES

To Access Daily Power Points from class:
1. Go To:
https://aw.tdsb.on.ca/sites/awsupport/SiteHome.aspx

2. USE LOGIN PROVIDED BY THE SCHOOL

3. When the AW screen comes up go along the top line you will see 'Site Home' then "My Home" right beside it, click on MY HOME and then you should see "Northern Secondary School". Highlight and click on "Northern Secondary School".

4. Go to the LEFT side of the screen where it says 'Options' at the top, scroll down to "Documents" and click on this

5. Now you should see a folder that says "School Shares (Drop-off & Pick-up)" click on this and wait for it to load up.

6. You should see a box on the left with "1372-Student Share" come up. If you click on the "-" sign in front of share folder it should compress it and then a few folders will show up including "1372-PickUp"and "1372-DropOff".

7. Click on "1372-PickUp" and then click on "BRECH" and then on "CGC 1D1" and you will find the PowerPoints as well as other large files available there.

You may also wish to go to the "1372-DropOff" folder and search for your class folder to drop off electronic work when asked to do so.
