We came into class and listened to announcements.
We wrote down our assignments. HOMEWORK FOR TONIGHT: PLN 2 (due Monday), writing conference (if you have not done so already), Memoir 4 (due tomorrow), SAT 3 exercises (due Friday). It may be a good idea to begin your 5th memoir which is due on Monday. Try to balance that out with you PLN, so you aren’t overwhelmed with the weekend and Homecoming.
We began to talk about the Ethos, Pathos, Logos examples in the Kony video. Examples are found on Smith’s daily powerpoint.
Smith expects you to hyperlink both titles in your summary and in your response. She also recommends to hyperlink various words in your PLN to be able to improve your writing. For example, you could hyperlink Kony’s name to an article or his Wikipedia. Be sure to take a strong yes or no feeling on Kony.
Then we went to the forum to listen to a lecture from our freshman class counselor for the rest of the period. He discussed GPA and the importance of doing well your Freshman year. He also talked about the amount of credits necessary to graduate at Arapahoe. He then told us about the credit requirements that most colleges have. He told us to get involved in our school to be able to succeed. Lastly, he discussed the tests that we need to take our Sophomore and Junior years for colleges to look at. These tests include the PSAT, SAT, and/or the ACT.
