Scribe for April 25th - Period 3

In class today, we completed a fishbowl regarding the chapter "Story" in A Whole New Mind, and also turned in Ted 2 before class. Before hand, we also received a tasty treat for winning the fundraiser.

Our Homework included
  • Read "Symphony"  in A Whole New Mind due Monday
  • Also read the docs Smith has given the class to expand your learning
  • Ted 4 due Monday
  • The big speech (still a little bit away)
  • Ted 3 due tomorrow
  • "RSA Animate - Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us" by Daniel Pink

    On Mrs. Smith's power point she recommends you follow these guidelines to produce a well written blog post.
    • hyperlinks to original sources
    • refer to author by last name
    • punctuate titles correctly
    • extensions: need more than just a link, explain and connect
    • Response: react don't summarize
    • overuse of author's name
    • personal words!!!! I, you, me, my, our, we us
    • don't quote in summary- summary is meant to put author's words in your own words to show your understanding not the author's
    • two separate paragraphs
    • posted before class
    • because in response topic sentence
    • lead-in's to quotes
    The video
    Check Agenda for further help or check Mrs. Smith web page.

    Hope this helps,
