Reading and the Help Menu

Can you?     Do you?    Details, details, details.  

1. If you don't read the directions fully, you just might miss something.  So read the assignments on the blog carefully and read the directions on assignments carefully.   

2. If you can't find your tool, search in the Help Menu.  It's at the top of your program.

Finals Week.

1. There is no official final in this class until the end of the year.  Your grade is based on your projects/assignments only.

2. All the projects for this semester are have been given to you.  If you have completed all the projects, you are done.  Cool!   If you have projects that have not been done,  I am giving you today, tomorrow and the time during the final to complete the remaining projects.  Everything has been graded and zeros are in the place of your score and it is marked as missing.  Your job is to get those zeros replaced with a score.

3.  PowerSchool is your friend.  Check it and let me know if I have missed something.  But before you tell me it is missing,  make sure that you have turned it in.  

Good luck!

Thank you Cristina C. for this weeks lesson plan!

Music and the Brain.

 Below is a link with adocumentary that I want you to watch and write a review on.    The review is Due by the end of class for up to full credit today.  

   The video review should be no more than one page in length, and have two paragraphs.  The first paragraph is a summary paragraph.  It should be at least 7 sentences in length, containing the following:

1.    an introduction sentence stating the topic of the video
2.    identify 3 things you learned watching the video
3.     then explain what you learned about each thing

(I learned that new mountain chains form at convergent boundaries.  The wrinkling of land as it collides with another plate creates these mountains.)
The second paragraph is an evaluation of the video, and should be at least 5 sentences in length.  This is your chance to explain how the video helped you, or what you thought of the video.  You should be as descriptive as possible in this portion, because it will help to ensure future videos are more effective.  In the evaluation paragraph you should state the following:

·      identify at least one thing you liked about the video
·      identify at least one thing you disliked about the video
·      how did the video help explain concepts or ideas from the class
·      was it difficult to understand, or was it too slow paced
·      could you see and hear the video well enough
