Game Plan

  • SSR
  • Admin: Permission slips
  • Macbeth Grades
  • Ortega Speaks
  • Cultural Literary Quiz

Summary 

After the usual 20 minute SSR the class was treated to a lecture by Mrs. Ortega on the upcoming Senior Project. The lecture lasted through the whole duration of the class. Mrs. Ortega told us about our summer homework, which would be to find a mentor in a certain career of your choosing and dedicate at least 10 hours with him/her to learning about it. After going over the summer homework Ortega then went on to give the class an insight of what the senior project is all about, what the requirements were and recommendations on how to handle certain tasks. I’ve taken the liberty of jotting down some notes on what Ortega had to say.

Notes 

  • 10 mentor ship hours required for the summer, 50 hours during senior year (counts as community service hours)
  • You can change your mentor
  • Do serious planning in advance
  • Try finding mentors through people you know, like a friend of your parents
  • I-Poly teachers CANNOT be mentors
  • ROP classes are an exception for mentor ship
  • Don’t wait till July 30th to start doing your mentor ship hours, meaning don’t sleep on it
  • Keep a positive attitude when around your mentor, if you care your mentor cares
  • The more mentor ship hours you put in the more it shows the teachers that you take this seriously (incentive for AE)
  • If going into the medical topic you will need some experience like volunteering at a hospital
  • The purpose of the project is to develop a relationship with an expert
  • If doing sports as your topic you must either be on a team or coach a team
  • If you are doing art as a topic you will need to take classes

Questions to ask yourself

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What will challenge you?

Reminder

  • PLAN AHEAD!

Game Plan

  • Groups give Shakespeare presentation

Summary

No SSR was done today in class because Mrs. Edwards wanted to dedicated as much time as possible to the group presentations. Each presentation was given 25 minutes in total to be complete in both giving a presentation on answering the EQ and showcasing the group’s film or skit. All the presentations were finished a good 15 minutes before class ended and the remainder of the class became free time.

Game Plan (April 13, 2015)

  • SSR
  • Decide presentation order
  • Reminder
    • Tech issue?
    • Answer the EQ
    • 25 minutes total
  • Shakespeare uncovered

Summary of the day

20 minutes of SSR was done in the beginning of the class as usual. Once that was finished Mrs. Edwards gave the class an explanation on what the requirements were for every group’s Macbeth presentation. Requirements included showcasing the production each group has been working on along with a presentation given by each group answering the essential question. Each group will be given in total 25 minutes to complete their presentation which includes the film. The showcasing and the presentation will be given by every group on Tuesday, tomorrow. The presentation does not have to given by every member of the group, a select few would work just fine but the presentation must be thorough and well thought out to receive a good grade. After being given the explanation the class was given the option to either work on planning group presentations or watching a film called Shakespeare Uncovered, the class chose to work on presentations. That was pretty much all that we did for the day.

Reminders

  • Hedmen’s Desmos assignment is due on Wednesday.
  • Pang’s Equilibrium worksheet is due on Wednesday.
  • Macbeth presentations are TOMORROW.
