Note on the Status of mrknuffke.net (August 2018)

Greetings!

In December of 2017, I took a new teaching position at the Singapore American School (SAS), starting in August of 2018.  Initially, I had anticipated that this would mean that mrknuffke.net would re-enter active development.  However, now that I am (thankfully) well ensconced in the new job, it turns out that there are not a lot of reasons for me to actually do that.  mrknuffke.net represents a thing that was useful in the educational webspace of four years ago.  My current course management is handled within the SAS platforms (a combination of Schoology and the SAS gSuite).  So I apologize if you were anticipating this site returning to its maximal functionality and a representation of the most current iterations of my courses.  That’s just not in the cards right now.  

I anticipate a large-scale revision of the site, once my first academic year at SAS has ended.  Until then, this place is going to stay pretty much as it is right now.  And even then, I might wind up getting lost in other projects, as I tend to do.

But What About The Goods?

Aside from my students, the major portion of mrknuffke.net traffic consists of teachers and students from other places, who are accessing the resources that are available.  All resources remain available at the same place on this site that they have always been available (Chemistry here, and AP Biology here).   My web host for this site is awesome, and cheap.   At the same time, it’s not free.  If you would like to contribute to the longterm status of mrknuffke.net, you can support the site (by supporting me) either on PayPal (one-time thing) or Patreon (more sustaining support).

What about <OTHER THING>?

I’m sure I have an answer.  Contact me to find out what it is.

THANKS FOR VISITING!

Words can not express how awesome I think it is that so many people find this website useful for their own teaching.  I am fully aware that many people visit every day to use the stuff I’ve put here.  I’m really glad to be able to keep this place around, and I’m sorry that it currently represents a course vision for Biology and Chemistry that is somewhat aged, by digital standards.  At the same time, the bones are good, and if the mothballs force teachers to modify the things that they find here for their own purpose, then that’s probably a good thing.

  • Please bring in your textbook if you haven’t already done so.  Seriously, tomorrow is your Last Chance!
  • Please bring your regents review book to class tomorrow.
  • Complete pp. 7-11 of  the Fifty Frequently Forgotten Fun Facts packet that you recieved in class on Wednesday.
  • Do memrise words every day.
  • Keep reviewing WSQ2 videos from the year. Here is a webpage that correlates questions from the diagnostic exam to WSQ2 videos.  Focus on the videos that deal with questions that you got wrong.  Here are all of the unit playlists.  Try to watch one a day.  Actively watch them (don’t just sit there.  Maybe add to your original WSQ2/notes, or make a list of things you still don’t understand/have questions about).  Also remember that each unit page on mrknuffke.net has other videos and resources below each WSQ2 video to help you learn the material.
  • Regents Review Live Streams are set for Saturday, June 18th.  Here is the schedule of times and topics.  Please submit your questions on this form by Sunday, June 12th.  Use this resource as much as you can!
