Hi Everyone! We’re in school today! For a full day!

Today and tomorrow, we’ll be getting caught up with some of the work we missed because of the last few snow days and early dismissals.

The first order of business is to turn in your WW9 work and to take the assessment: http://www.quia.com/quiz/4063326.html. We’ll be doing this on the Chromebooks and personal devices, so please share.  🙂

The next order of business is to continue reading for research. I conferences with several of you already, but if I haven’t met with you yet please sign up for a conference. (The conference helps to make sure that you on are on the right track with your reading work. Also, because it is a group conference, you get lots of good feedback from your peers as well!)

Our focus over the next couple of days will build off of what we started in class on Tuesday:
EQ: What do I want to find out most about my topic?
EQ: What do I want to share most with my readers about my topic later on?

These two EQs are so closely related, and we saw on Tuesday how they live together in our minds as we read. The new EQs we are adding today that work along with them are:
EQ: Where and when do I need to reread information in my sources?
EQ: How is rereading making me a stronger researcher?

Remember that I have shared my work in-progress with you in the handouts folder. Take a look to see how my reading response is coming along and the way I am organizing my research.  You’ll notice that I’ve reset my SMART goal already and revised my research questions and search terms.  You’ll also see how I decided to organize my T-R-A-P notes and where I put my objective summaries.
