After our usual 20 minutes of SSR, Ortega came into the classroom to talk about the senior project to us. The senior project is made up of a triangle that and the three corners are mentorship, research, and wild card. This project is about something you’re passionate about and that challenges you. This project is an individual one and in order to graduate you have to pass this project so thing ahead when working on it. One of the pieces that make it up is the mentorship and this is meant for you to get out of your comfort zone. ROP classes are allowed as this put it is not really challenging you. Over the summer you’re required to at least do 10 hours of mentorship and during school you have to do 50 hours of mentorship. These hours will go into your 200 that you have to do for the school. Research is another corner from the triangle which will require you to go in depth for your project. The type of research can be anything like seeing documentaries, reading journals, doing interviews as long as you bring 3 sources of research every Friday when we’re seniors. Wild card is where independent 2 components come in, one is due on February and the other one is due April which both have to be 30 hours. These independent components can be on additional mentorship hours, young scholar classes or other classes. Ortega stated that you will be showing your work on this project throughout senior year by your blog, research paper, and presentations. If you have any questions about the senior project feel free to contact Ortega at: ortegajen@gmail.com .

Hey you guys, so today I am just going to re inform you about what we did today during Edwards class.

Today we started off by going straight into presentations on Macbeth. The group order was Vivian’s group. Kimberly’s group, and ended it with Isaiah’s group. Mrs. Edwards made announcements on the permission slips for the College Fair about on how you have until next Tuesday to bring it back signed in order to go. If you refuse to go it is fine just know you will be sitting in the office until we come back. Also, COME to school tomorrow because Ortega is going to come into the class and talk to us about the senior project and this would be the perfect time to ask questions about it. I stress that because we will be seniors next year as you may know, so don’t keep quiet, if you are unsure of something, feel free to ask.

Homework
Navaroli: p.534-539 #1-4 due Tomorrow
Pang: Lab due Friday

Today we did our usual 20 minutes of SSR and after Mrs. Edwards started to talk about what will happen on Wednesday. Each group now as 25 minutes to present and it will go in the order: Vivian’s group, Isaiah’s Group, and Kimberly’s group, this means though that there will be no SSR on Wednesday which allows you to not bring your book. Edwards expects this presentations to be professional and go up there prepared; setting up time will come out of your 25 minutes so don’t take long. Also she only has a HDMI cord if anyone was wondering on playing there film from their own computer. She also talked about the schedule for the month and how it is going to work. If you have any questions on what we will be doing this month, Edwards answer is YES. She knows very little and will tell us more when she finds out. Thursday, Ortega is coming in to talk about a new unit so be at SCHOOL. Next week is College Board testing and you must write an essay in order to get paid from that test we took a while back. Next Wednesday is the colleges fair so don’t be LATE. 4-Core rotation on Friday on April 24th and May 1st. Career day is in two weeks on Wednesday and that is all Mrs. Edwards really knows about this event. We will have a normal week in three weeks from now and in four weeks we take the CAASP TEST. The week of May 18th will be when senior presentations start and will lead us to the end of the year. After all her announcements she gave us the opinion to see Shakespeare Uncovered but the class decided to just have work time instead.
