Agenda: Friday, Sept. 25, 2009

Quote of the day:
"Video Killed the Radio Star." -- Lyrics from the very first video on MTV by the Buggles. Aired at midnight on Aug. 1, 1981

Learning Target:
Juniors -- What is Road Trip Nation? How are we going to use it in AVID III? What does the phrase "Don't Fall Asleep at the Wheel" mean to you?

Sophomores -- What is a scholarship scam? How can I improve my chances of doing well in college?

Juniors will discuss Road Trip Nation. They will watch a video about Bev Kearney, UT Track and Field Coach. They will take cornell notes with a reflection. We will also see "Don't Fall Asleep at the Wheel." Students will take notes and reflect at the end. If time, we will group up and discuss our path to success. What will it look like?

Sophomores: We will be in the Blue LGI for Lilly Chu from the BBB (Better Business Bureau). She is going to be our Guest Speaker and discuss important topics like: Scholarship Scams and Cell Phones.

Have a great weekend!

Mr. Duez,
I enjoy reading your blog. Your class must have fun, and the kids are lucky to have such an inspiring AVID teacher.

Thank You for reading Barb. AVID is a great class and we are all learning a lot each day (me included). But, it sure is a whole lot of work. I can't wait to graduate the kids I have now and just see how it's all going to work out for these kids.

I probably worry too much.

Thanks for reading.
