Thursday – February 23rd, 2017

Hello again North Houseeee! So glad this week is almost over, it has been stressful. To anyone (most likely everyone) who is working on the lab report, I wish you good luck tonight.

raw

Today we started the day with Edward’s class where we completed the usual 20 minutes of SSW. Again her class was used as a work block for the Pride and Prejudice Projination which if you have forgotten is due Monday! For other houses at the end of the block a complete script was due but for us all we needed was a rough draft that she went around and quickly checked at the end of the block. Again as a reminder, if you read off the slides of your video slideshow or “wing it” that will result in a lower grade so make sure you guys don’t do that !

Next we had math and that was used as a work block to complete the lab report, roller coaster video, the projination or whatever else we needed to finish up so that was helpful.

Lastly we had econ and we finished up the Famous Amos documentary whilst eating the cookies, they were very yummy. And then we took the open note econ test which was extremely easy if you paid attention to the lectures in class.

Reminders: 

  • Blog #23 due by 9pm tonight
  • Roller coaster video due first block tomorrow
  • Holt’s component due first block tomorrow
  • Projination due Monday
  • Bring money or prepare to be on clean up crew for tomorrows feast

That’s it for today, peace out!

Then he did an intro to momentum lesson which included lots of entertaining videos, like a guy getting a soccer ball thrown at his face.

We ended the class with 20 minutes to work on the roller coaster calculations or the experiment and then we left! Don’t forget for Holt’s class that the calculations are due tomorrow and the experiment and roller coaster video are due Friday, yikes lots to do.

Next we went to Edward’s class and we did the normal 20 minutes of SSR. After that we had the rest of the class to work on the Pride and Prejudice Projination with our groups. Edwards also gave us a friendly reminder that for the video we should not be reading off of the slides because that will result in a bad grade. Dont forget all of the information for it can be found in the handouts section of the class blog!

Lastly it would be awesome if you guys brought 5 dollars for the class party by tomorrow for Rocky and Chris so we can feast! (✿◠‿◠)

Blog Assignment #23

Hello North House!

I hope you all are enjoying the four-day weekend, be safe and don’t party too hard! Don’t forget that the roller coaster calculations are due Tuesday when we get back, good luck to anyone that forgot and left their roller coaster in a classroom (aka my group, rip 2 us). Anyways, for this weeks blog assignment I wanted to share with you guys a video about social media and technology that I thought was very eye-opening. Considering right now in english we are focusing on social media etiquette and the how-tos of the different apps, I wanted to focus on the impact social media and technology can have on our lives.

In the video “Look Up” by Youtuber Gary Turk, he shows how technology, which was created to make it easier to connect with each other, can really cause us to do the opposite at times. As you watch the video think about the impact your phone, laptop, social media etc. has on your life.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7dLU6fk9QY

Prompt: Do you feel social media and technology are necessities in your life or distractions? Has there ever been a time where you missed out on opportunities in your life because you were caught up in the cyber world rather than the real world? If you are not an avid social media or technology user is there a reason why you are not?

My name is Josh, and I am the scribe. 

Mrs. Edwards –

Today in class we started with 20 minutes of SWW. Remember, if you miss a day, meet up with her to complete or fill in your missing day. After 20 mins of SSW, she gave us more time to work on “Projination”. Although she is giving us time to work in class, she should be working on “Profanation” and not other class work. Have $5 for Chris Q. and Rocky V. for our North House party on February 24th.

Mr. Piggot –

We took the test on Proofs.

Mr. Gailey – 

Today in economics, he gave us time to work on our presentations, and we will be presenting next Wednesday.

It will be open note (written only), but if it is typed, you will not be able to take it.
