Day Nine
Happy Friday!  (August 29th)
Howdy, peeps!

When You Come In
  • Please sign in.  
  • Please get out your Professor Foster article, “How’d He Do That?”
  • Reading Critically--Advice to Harvard Freshmen was due at 8AM this morning.
  • I need the first fifteen minutes of class for businessy stuff--then I want to give you a broad overview of Greek Mythology.
  • Then you’re going to pick a Greek myth figure, and you’ll start researching him/her.

  1. Let me show you how materials are organized.  Please note especially the right-hand column, where upcoming items are listed.
  2. Go by your grade in schoology.  There is some syncing problem between schoology and powerschool, so the powerschool grade for this class is a little bit off.  Go by your grade in schoology.  Tech support is working on this issue.
  3. Read my comments to you on your assignments in schoology, especially note-taking websites assignment.
  4. Note-Taking Websites:  Did you bookmark the three you thought would be most helpful?  If not, do so now.
