- Identify some good sources for research
- Write in a series of well developed paragraphs with references to research sources
- Create an infographic or poster that is appealing for my audience and easy to understand from a few feet away

Your conspiracy theory assignments are due today in Google Classroom.

We are continuing to work on our conspiracy theory projects in room 215.
Please see Google classroom for what we’re working on today.

I’m away again today but I promise I’ll be back tomorrow. Because I essentially robbed you of the last minute opportunity to record your presentations, I’m giving you one last chance to get your presentation recorded and submitted before I start docking late marks.
So get those presentations recorded and submitted on Google classroom today, or you’ll start losing marks.
We have an assembly at the end of the period so the assembly day schedule looks like this:
Per 1: 8:10-9:20
Per 2: 9:25-10:30–Assembly
Per 3: 12:20-1:20
Per 4: 1:20-2:25
We are continuing to work on our projects but today we are in 215. These are due Friday.
All right, Ladies and Gentlemen…. time to pick up the pace a bit. Your Unit 2 culminating tasks are due at the end of this week. That means you must have your presentation complete and the recording finished as well. Today I’m going to show you the templates I created for your presentations and how to record your presentation using Vidyard.
Guess what? You’re still working on your projects. However, I’m looking at your reflections from yesterday, and noticing that some of you didn’t really get much accomplished yesterday so I want to sit down with each of you and talk to you about where I think you should be and what I can do to help you.
