Today's focus was comparing and contrasting electronic and hardcopy text. The students processed through a variety of direct instruction and peer activities to come to their final decisions about which type of text/learning they prefer. The final assessment will be a piece of writing that will serve as their first entry on the Modern Me web page (writing grade) and it will also be made into a video diary entry.
We started the check-out process today. We have a lot of students that have not turned in their paperwork. Please make sure your child has a case or they will be denied taking the laptop home.
Students should be reading The Axemaker's Gift each night and making entries into their Google Docs, so I can provide them with feedback.
