Today I was sick in the morning due to an allergic reaction, so I came at lunch after I was feeling a bit better. We had P.E. again today, and played football, my team only won once. After that, we talked for a bit about where to submit assignments and then I worked on my English.
Today we worked on our assessments for the inner circle/outer circle discussion for almost half the morning, the other half I worked on a lot of English and Socials assignments in the learning commons. After lunch, we talked about how to make an effective PowerPoint presentation, then we talked about our Inquiry projects and we developed a rubric as a group that will be used to mark our Inquiry Projects. For the rest of the day I worked on finishing up my Inquiry Project.
Today we did Science first and I partnered up with Cassidy to do an assignment on compounds, I think we got significantly far into it. We also had P.E. and played football, which I disliked. Then for the rest of the day I worked on my Socials 10 work and I’m on the second unit.
Sept, 12, 2012 – Today we decided on our main topic and we organized our sub topics. We also made a rough draft of ideas that we will use in our project. Now that we have gotten all our main points and ideas together, our next block will probably be used more productively towards starting to come up with ideas on how we will present our project and researching our topics more thoroughly.
Sept, 18, 2012 – Today I watched a movie about the War of 1812 with Calli. We watched the whole thing for most of the day and I also worked on my English literary notes.
Sept, 19, 2012 – My inquiry project is going well so far, I think we have been using our time pretty productively. Today we decided on how exactly we will be presenting our final project and we individually worked on our separate parts. I also worked on an English assignment about a short story called “Lather and Nothing Else”. Over the long weekend I will most likely work on my online assignments, mostly on English and Socials.
