Podcast for the second week of October.

ThisĀ  week we have a book report project due on October 11th.

We are changing gears on our podcast this week. We are reforming groups and are taking a more community approach to this project. Students will be researching community needs and will be utilizing their podcast as a method to organize and inform others concerning issues in their community.

The second week of October.

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the first quarter and that October is here. My grades are due to be posted on Friday so the end of the quarter crunch is on. I work hard to keep grades posted in a timely manner so hopefully there are few surprises for anyone.

This week we will be working on SKIMMING. We will develop the skill utilizing newspapers and news articles. We will also be starting our new book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma.

On Tuesday we will be taking the end of unit test.
