Humanities: Socratic Seminar & Then We Built!

We started class in Mr. Dunbar's room and completed a quick socratic seminar.    (You can also find it shared in your Google Drive.)

Then it was building time.  We got loads of building and painting and more done.

Biggest development?  Cardboard Challenges MUST BE READY FOR THURSDAY PERIOD 3.

This is a change from what as said last week, but it is must be this way for us to do this as part of a collective experience at Mt. Blue.

Cardboard Challenge

We have a lot of work to do by next Wednesday.

Here's everything that needs to happen for the Cardboard Challenge.

1. PBL/DT Project Proposal.   The form is in your e-mail AND available at this blog post.  You need approval before we will grant access to materials and tools.

2. Cardboard Challenge.  Build. Make. Create.  Bring resources from home.  (Do not bring knives/box cutters.  We will provide box cutters in class.)  Ask yourself this question: How might we construct a cardboard product without glue or tape?
DUE: Thurs., Oct. 3rd.  Period 3.  Lunch.  Awesome.

3. Cardboard Challenge Research IGNITE.  This is a slide show similar to your autobiography.  It requires you to research a topic related to your particular cardboard project and create a 2 minute, 12 slide presentation about that topic.
DUE: Wed, Oct. 9th


You have at least three blog posts due this week.  One of them must document your cardboard challenge -- as many parts and pieces of your process as possible.  Pics of drawings and designs, notes, prototypes, stages of assembly.   The other two (or more) may be about anything related to class.  It may be LoNGview work, it may be answers to questions raised in socratic seminar, it may be commentary about how class is going, it may be ideas on what you'd like to research for your ignite presentation part of the cardboard challenge.
DUE: Oct. 3rd or 4th (No school on the 4th, but it won't be late if it comes in on that day)
