Monday, 8/25

For our first full day of class, we started by going over the course norms. Students need to show these to their parents and get the signature slip signed for next time. I also reminded (ha!) everyone to sign up for Remind.com; see Thursday’s post or the top of this page for signup links. After this, we discussed public speaking and what students had learned about public speaking in middle school. I described the Bio Bag assignment everyone will complete starting on Friday, and then Ms. Dailey and I presented exmaple bio bags about ourselves. Students had the last several minutes of class to start brainstorming objects to bring and stories to tell about themselves. Homework: show the course norms handout to your parents and get the signature slip signed for next class.
