Agenda: Week of 2/28/2011

Quote of the Week:  "Everything you need is already inside. Just do it." - Bill Bowerman (Nike)

1.  Goal of the Week.
Students will write a goal that is:
1. Meaningful
2. Attainable
3. Measureable
They will also write a paragraph about last week's goal and explain whether their goal was attained or not.  

2.  Inspiration:
We'll check out this disturbing, yet important series of pictures:
Moral of the story: "Drugs are bad!'

But, Dancing is very, very good (in this video):

We'll also discuss gas prices:

We will also look at room assignments for TAKS on Tuesday.  And we'll look at the bell schedule for this crazy TAKS week.

We have the computers in the classroom, so students will work on the wireless laptops to do TAKS work on ePrep.  Students are also going to be researching a college of their choice for a presentation to the class.

Hello - I teach AVID in Ithaca and saw your site - what are you doing with the pics and two videos listed. Is there an essential question/topic or just discussing them? Thank you.

It just depends on the day. I get a lot of grades from binder/org and tutoring. Plus I get grades from their goal of the week.

If I had freshmen and sophomores, I'd definitely have them write. But with the older kids, we mostly discuss.
