Happy New Year to all 8th graders and their families!
In looking over the past assignments I am going to recap the status and hopefully some of you will be reminded of some projects that need attention. Remember that on time points are a part of every project evaluation.
008-8 was due back on November 29. There are 3 students in 8A and 2 students in 8B who have never submitted that activity. There are also some 8A students who submitted but are missing 2 of the attachments.
009-8 Sharing Colorized images was due on December 22. Only 7 students in 8A and 3 students in 8B have remembered to submit the assignment in Google Classroom. Some of you may have submitted the blog post (or not) but not submitted the GC assignment to indicate completion.
010-8 Quote and Image Mashup is coming up on January 12. In addition we have the stock market activity and coding progress also posted in Google Classroom. These will be discussed in class on January 5 and then students will have time to work Jan 5 - Jan 19 on activities. By the end of this week there should be "incompletes" posted in PowerSchool for students who have not completed the old assignments.
CAUTION: A number of students dawdle during independent work time and have not made the connection that if you do not get down to business and make use of those minutes, somewhere else you will have to invest time to accomplish your goals. The same holds true for being absent for a technology class whether for illness or a trip. Time will need to be invested somewhere. "Time and tide wait for no man" (or 8th grader).
