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

Gantt Chart... Project Management.


Gantt chart is a type of bar chart, developed by Henry Gantt, that illustrates a project schedule. Gantt charts illustrate the start and finish dates of the terminal elements and summary elements of a project. Terminal elements and summary elements comprise the work breakdown structure of the project. Some Gantt charts also show the dependency (i.e., precedence network) relationships between activities. Gantt charts can be used to show current schedule status using percent-complete shadings and a vertical "TODAY" line as shown here.
Although now regarded as a common charting technique, Gantt charts were considered revolutionary when first introduced[citation needed]. In recognition of Henry Gantt's contributions, the Henry Laurence Gantt Medal is awarded for distinguished achievement in management and in community service. This chart is also used in Information Technology to represent data that has been collected.

Please go to this site.  Log in with your google account.  Go through it and check out the program.  I think this project Gantt site will be useful.  

You assignment is to create a Gantt Chart.   We need to talk about projects...
