Writing: Students continued to work on their I-Search projects (click here for more details) by refining and narrowing their research question. Some started to collect research on their I-Search 2008 class wiki page. Homework is to finalize their research question by today.
A summary of the project:
Students will research their I-Search question using print and internet sources and create a digital presentation using PowerPoint or MrHowd.com Google Docs presentation software. Students are collecting their research on our I-Search 2008 class wiki. Later, students will present their findings to other students who sign up to attend their talk. The presentation slides will be turned in to portfolios for a writing grade.
The I-Search presentation is due April 25.
