Blog Post 13

Reflection on the semester.

Write a one page reflection the year (300 words minimum) focused on showing your readiness to move to 10th or 11th grade. How did you grow in science, math, Spanish, and humanities? How about growth outside of school during the semester? Where are your strengths? Where do you need to improve? What are your goals for the coming years? Use evidence in the form of work from class to show the growth.

Focus on reflection. Summarization is not reflection.  This one pager will help form the basis for your tPOL – a 7 – 10 minute reflection in front of your teachers and a peer panel on the growth you experienced this year and why you are ready for the next grade level.

Blog Post 12

For blog post twelve, please post your final products. See the list below:

  • When you have completed your page(s) for the book, and it is ready for publishing (approved by Brian/Adam with page number, etc), upload the page onto your blog. Include a brief comment on what you learned from creating a publishable piece.
  • Choose your best photo from the past semester. Process it to bring out detail, contrast, composition. Save the file as a 300 dpi, 13″x9″ jpg or psd. You have to use the original file that has not been emailed or put on social media, etc. You want the largest possible file for the best detail. We will begin printing these next week. Include a brief description of how you captured the shot, what equipment you’ve used, settings (etc)
  • We are going out on May 23rd for an evening astronomy class. Post the processed image of the solar object you and your partner(s) imaged. Include a reflection on what you learned camping and looking at the stars.
