Deadline Shift: May 14th to May 15th

On the calendar, the current deadline for the completed Senior Project Portfolio is Thursday, May 14th at the end of class. Because school on May 13th has been postponed, I am also postponing that deadline by one day. Senior Project Portfolios are now due at the end of class on Friday, May 15th.

Regarding May 13th: One key skill we strive to master in English 12 is the examination and anlaysis of multiple perspectives, rooted in fact rather than strings of opinion, in order to make informed decisions. As students, parents, and the Camas community form their positions about the actions scheduled for May 13th, I encourage you to seek to understand all sides of the issues at hand and avoid arriving at any conclusion too quickly. In the end, no matter which position one adopts about May 13th (or any other issue), that position is only respectable if it comes after a fair and reasoned examination of multiple perspectives, rooted in fact as opposed to hearsay or hyperbole. If you have questions about this, do not hesitate to contact me or the administration of the Camas School District.

Thurs. 7 May 2015

Due Today: Draft scripted introduction for your boards presentation.

Target: I can develop a visual aid to support the message I intend to communicate to my audience.

In Class Today:

  1. Using Visuals, Audience Awareness
  2. Work Time
  3. End-of-the-period Progress Check

HW: Visual proposal due at the start of class tomorrow! Be ready to report, in detail, what you plan do to for your visual aid.
