And today

Finish up Friday.  I'm out today.   Be nice. 

I have a lot of grading to do

I hope you found the last project fun.  Do another one.  Do as many as you want.  I need to get your scores entered in the grade book.  I will grade two projects like yesterdays.   So post at least two.  Have fun.  Make me laugh.  Please, make me laugh, grading takes forever and is not fun.   Unless I am laughing.  Or cracking up a little.

Video Reviews. Assignment

     During the course of this class, you will have the opportunity to watch several educational videos.  After viewing the videos, you shall write a review of the video.  These are very useful for teachers and students.  It demonstrates that you are attentive during the video and taking notes (in other words, learning), and it helps teachers to choose a variety of videos that are more suited the needs of the class.
     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

Last day to turn in assignments.

I will be putting a zero in assignment that have not been turned in through the guitar.  If you have completed the cartoon it is in your grade and if you have not I will leave it blank to give you more time to finish and it will not effect your grade.  please look at your assignments online to see if I have you marked down correctly.   

Also, some of you turned in only 1 of the two pen practice sheets.  So I am attempting to give you half credit.  So if you see 5 points either I messed up or you didn't do both.   If you see a zero also come up.  I was waiting for you to do the other one and I never saw it.  So, COME UP AND LET'S LOOK TOGETHER.   

You are responsible for your grade.
