Reminder: To request a regrade for a Non-Zero or Warning assignment, you must send an e-mail to your teacher, with the URL of the document/page you want her to grade. You must sign your e-mail with your name, grade level and class. Remember that, although you only have one assignment, your teacher has to sift through all 170+ assignments and 5 gradebooks to find you. The easier you make it to re-grade, the higher the chance that it will be done promptly.
This week we will set up our blogs, and learn how to manage our GAfE and Edmodo accounts. We will explore the class website, and write our first blogpost. This will be your first attempt at XP! We will round out the week by exploring what a scientist does.
6th , 7th and 8th Science
After a brief recap on GaFE, blogs and Edmodo, we will refresh our memory on the Science and Engineering practices using a new tool. You have your first blogpost due at midnight on Sunday, August 20.
We will continue our learning on how to work collaboratively. We will start by discussing ways to de-escalate conflict. We will then look at ways to come up with ideas that help resolve conflict in a way that everyone "wins".
