Week of Aug. 29

Take a look at AKS for sections 4, 5 and 6.  Reflect on what you might be doing now that addresses those, and make a case for what you're doing.  Also, what is an "A" for one of those standards, versus a "B", "C", etc. grade?  Let's formalize that this week.

I will also be reviewing blogs again.  I will try to give you an official rubric, but here's what I am looking for, which I believe I have stated in class:

  • Clear explanation of how the hours of the week were used, with specific examples and results that prove it.

  • Professional language, as if you were speaking to a group of school leaders or business mentors.  When your idea starts to become real, you might get supporters who want to discover your journey.

  • Plans for the following week:  a plan is a combination of a guess and facts, no matter how experienced you are.  You can plan to research something or meet someone, but stuff happens.  You can't plan results or reactions, just your actions to take.  I should see plans.

  • Timeliness:  it is due each week, and delivering on time is an essential skill if you want to be considered mature and professional.
At this point, you all have projects.  I want to help you in the planning part whenever I can, so ask!
