Give us your feedback (centrohispano@marist.com). We want to make this as easier as possible to you, too!

Use of Technology

  • WIFI INTERNET CONNECTION – We will have access to wifi in the classroom during our classes’ times. You will see “Centro Hispano” and the password is “CentroHispano”. You can share it with you students. Please do not use “Marist Guest” – it will be disabled.
  • PROJECTORS – Marist IT prefer that we use the wireless connections. You will need the driver software: (Easy MP by Epson for Laptops) or iProjector app (available for free at the app stores) for iPhone, iPads, Androids (software has its limitations).
  • Some classrooms have document cameras. You can use them as long as you do not move any connection and you turn them off. Thank you!
  • Please try not touch any connections in the classrooms or the computer lab. Thank you.
  • Please turn off the projectors when they are not in use.

Tutoring (Math and Writing)

TUESDAYS: If your schedule allows it, please consider offering tutoring before or after class. Sometimes, our students have questions that need one-on-one attention. Ten minutes before or after class could do wonders!

SATURDAYS AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER: We will continue to offer math tutorials on Saturdays from 9am to 11am at M002 (English) and M003 (Spanish), and Writing tutorials from  9am to 11am at M002 (English) and M003 (Spanish).

*Please encourage your students to sign up through the website as the semester ends, before every Fridays (top menu). Thank you!

Lab Schedule – Spring 2020

Click “here” (not yet completed) for link for lab schedule

*If early in the semester you know you will be missing a class, let us know so we can explore sending your class to the lab. Thank you.

Testing Schedule – Spring 2020

Coming soon

Please encourage your students to program their official test as soon as they pass (or get a too close to call in) their GED Ready. We ideally want to have their official tests during DECEMBER (fall) / MAY (spring). After that time, they start forgetting important things they learned.

*Some students may ask you if they can take it at home. The answer is yes IF you already have at least an official GED. If not, we want to guide them through the process in the lab to ensure they schedule their test.

Thank you!

Webinars:

Mathematical Reasoning Webinar (Sept 2015)

In this webinar, we’ll take a deep dive into the content covered on the 2014 GED®test – Mathematical Reasoning. We’ll take a look at the types of questions that students are missing on the test and examine the skills students need in order to answer these question correctly. We’ll also explore teaching strategies and techniques that you can use in your classroom to help students develop these skills.

Argumentative Writing (June 2015)

It’s not just about Reasoning Through Language Arts! This webinar will focus on the process of teaching argumentative writing – one step at a time. Dig deeper into the different parts of argumentative writing and how to integrate this process in constructed responses for Reasoning Through Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. This webinar will provide you with strategies, frames, and graphic organizers for teaching argumentative writing – both in extended responses and short answers. Remember, it’s all about assisting our students in becoming more effective writers.

Science Strategies (Nov. 2015)

Dig deeper into the high impact areas of science and explore some strategies, activities, and even a few experiments that you can use in the classroom. Join us as we use the 5E Instructional Model to promote scientific learning. Take a closer look at how short answer questions are crafted and how to help students make a deeper connection with the wonderful world of science.

Social Studies (Oct. 27, 2015)

Individual rights, state’s rights versus federal power, checks and balances, and separation of power – the constructed response on the GED® Social Studies test requires that students demonstrate their understanding of these enduring issues. Join us as we explore ways to assist our students in defining enduring issues and identifying relationships between primary and secondary resources, as well as their own personal knowledge.
