Welcome to my staff page. On the left, you will find useful links for the classes I teach, and below is a brief introduction to some important information.
 
Contact Information:
The best way to get in contact with me is via my staff email: dillon.braaten@austinisd.org. I do my best to respond to all emails in no more than 24 hours. I check and respond to emails constantly throughout the day between 6am and 8pm. I encourage students to be a strong advocate of their own education and communicate with me directly, but I am always happy to discuss matters with adults at home.
 
Classroom Phone:
Yes, there is a phone in my classroom, but due to the fact that I am either teaching or conducting business on campus, it is not the most reliable way to contact me. Typically I use it to contact you if necessary. If you would like to leave me a voice mail the number is: 512-841-1586
 
Classes
AP World History
  • This course has recently been updated by the College Board to focus on Modern World history starting at 1200 CE. For more information on the course please visit the College Board's website (found here)
 
AVID 
  • I am excited to be both teaching the AVID elective as well as coordinating the AVID site team at L.C. Anderson. For more information about our AVID program please click on the link found on this page to learn how AVID can help prepare your child for success in college.
 
BLEND
  • All L.C. Anderson teachers use BLEND as an online classroom to supplement instruction. Each teacher uses BLEND a little differently. If you need access to BLEND or want to understand more about how to effectively navigate it click here.

Also in addition to FIT's I am available for tutorials by appointment.
 
Additional Tutorial Info:
Students have access to more than just individual tutorials with me, here are a number of resources they can utilize... 
 
F.I.T.
During the school day, three times a week your student has access to elect which teacher they would like to spend 30 minutes of flexible instruction time (FIT) with. The purpose of these sessions is to allow your student time during the school day to receive additional support. For more information about FIT click here. For help with registering your student for a FIT click here.

Other AP World History Teachers
 
Here at L.C. Anderson, our teachers have opportunities to work closely with their peers on campus who teach the same courses. The Social Studies department uses these opportunities extensively to align their courses. In other words, what is being taught in my class is identical to the other two AP World History teachers on any given day. We offer the same assessments, and grade using the same rubrics. Your students can receive help from any of the three AP World History teachers at any time. Here are their names and links to staff pages.
