We had a substitute, so I should report to Mrs. Gibbs that the students were very well behaved. A couple of people in each class have finished the PPT.
Things that we discussed today primarily involved the communication phase of Internet reading. (Remember our posters? 1. Question; 2. Locate; 3. Evaluate; 4. Synthesize; 5. Communicate. ) Students who were collaborating on projects needed to share information for the different slides, so we practice emailing information to one another. We also talked about paraphrasing information from Web sites to avoid plagiarism.
I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! Ms. Jackie & I will be in Austin, TX for a conference the week after the break, so we'll see you the first week in December!
P.S. Thanks for doing such great work in class on Tuesday! =o)
