I introduced the big 10th Grade Research Paper today. Please see the tab under the English 10 section to read more about the papers. I handed out the parent letters that are due this Friday. Students should try and watch the movie they signed up for by the beginning of next week. We signed up for topics and spent some time looking up topics on Wikipedia (remember, you can't cite Wikipedia in your papers).
Today we introduced the class by watching the "Did You Know 2011" video. We discussed social media and the importance of becoming a better Digital Citizen. We took a PBS Media Quiz and then proceeded to read through articles on power searching in google. We also completed a short activity to find information online with power searches.
