Beginning Cycle Three

We are beginning Cycle Three. Many of you did very well last Cycle and began showing what you can do when you put your mind to it. Keep it up and complete Cycle Three better than you ended Cycle Two. For those of you who didn't get started in Cycle Two, please make every effort to make Cycle Three the cycle you begin to complete your academic requirements.

You can do it, some have shown that and should serve as models to those who need to start. Make it a good cycle.

You have another fresh start. Please use it.

We will study Short Stories this cycle.

How are you Learning?

As you conclude the Cell Phone radiation project, you will write in your journal about the process of learning you just experienced. More than what you learned. Discuss how you learned. Investigate the processes you went through in the learning process that resulted in the final project. Explore the kinds of decisions you had to make and what kinds of questions you had to ask yourself as you navigated the research. What did you learn about yourself and more specifically how you learn?
