Agenda: Week of April 5 - April 9, 2010

Quote of the Week:
"People are in a rush to start their lives, and it's sad...the rest of their lives, they're working at something they don't enjoy." - Al Merrick, Founder of Channel Islands Surfboards.

First we'll write our Goal of the Week and we'll do it in our Road Trip Nation groups.  This will give groups a chance to touch base on where they are at in terms of RTN interviews.  Then we will read a blog posting by Anne Paik about the college application process:
APRIL 4, 2010, 7:30 AM A Sheaf of Rejections, But Still ‘Fabulous’  By ANNE PAIK
After reading and discussing her blog posting, we'll watch a tv interview with the writer that created "The Choice" on New York Times.


Tutoring and Road Trip Nation Interviews.  We'll watch the Road Trip Nation interviews that have been completed so far.  Great job everyone!
If we have a gap in them, or finish them all, we will 
watch a finished Road Trip interview from the RTN Youtube site from Hoover High

About the video:  Hoover High School AOIT students embark on their own Roadtrip Nation projects.  Roadtrip Nation has evolved into a PBS series, three books, an online community, and a student movement. We send people on the road who are interested in exploring the world outside their comfort zone, talking with individuals who chose to define their own road in life, and sharing their experiences with our generation.

We will spend the period writing our Life Goal rough drafts.  If there is any time at the end of the period, we'll see a portion of a group's Road Trip Nation video.
