Lots To Do This Week

You have four tasks this week:

1. Make sure you are completely caught up on all of your blog posts this week. Double-check and then triple-check. I will be looking at all of the blogs again this week.

2. You need to create a new post that outlines what you are going to be doing for your "genius hour" project (using your proposal form would be a good start). Don't forget to include videos and pictures if it helps to explain what you will be doing. Make sure you erase the "highlighting" marks on your proposal before you start copying and pasting.

3. In a separate post,  you need to post the "headline" picture we have been working on with a small write-up.

4. In a separate post, you need to write a motivational post. Sometimes, people need a little encouragement to get things done. Big things start from little things, and motivational posts can be just what the doctor ordered. Your job is to find two (don't forget to give credit where credit is due) motivational pictures with quotes (or feel free to create your own) that you find inspirational and then write a post reflecting on the meaning of the quotes. Go deep here.

Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students.  Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!

Create A List Of Something

Before you begin this week's blog assignment, please make sure you are completely caught up with all of the previous tasks. Thank-you. 

Lists are popular. Very popular. Your job this week is to create at least 3 different lists. Create a top 10, or better yet a top 20 list. Lists of your favourite movies, books, food, influential people, or any other topic can easily generate buzz. Let's create some buzz...just keep it appropriate for school.

Don't forget to include a picture(s) in your post and to give credit where credit is due on everything you have used. 

Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students.  Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!

Make An Ultimate Resource Post

Before you begin this week's blog assignment, please make sure you are completely caught up with all of the previous tasks. Thank-you. 

For this week's post, you need to pick a "niche" (having specific appeal to you) of yours and create a list of the most useful resources/articles/pictures you can find on the internet. This post will be the ultimate resource for whatever it is you choose. For example, if you choose "fishing", make sure you have enough information that a person looking to begin fishing could stay on your blog and learn everything there is to know about it.

Don't forget to give credit where credit is due on all articles/pictures etc that you are using. 

Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students.  Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!

Pictures In Time

Before you begin this week's blog assignment, please make sure you are completely caught up with all of the previous tasks. Thank-you. 

If you could take one picture to send back in time (up to 100-150 years ago), what would you photograph, who would you send it to and why? Or, find an appropriate and significant photo from the past and write about its significance. Why is it important? Why should people know about it? Who took the photo? What story is the photo telling? Etc. Don't forget to give credit where credit is due.

Once you have posted your response, read the responses posted by your peers and reply thoughtfully to at least two other students.  Compliment strong points, make connections, ask questions and build on ideas shared!

Find A Cool Infographic

Your job this week is to find a cool infographic (a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to represent information or data) and tell me about it.  Why did you choose this one? What does it tell you? Do you agree with it or not? Is it well designed? What would you do differently? Is it a true representation of the data or is it biased, or perhaps even skewed to look better or worse than it really is? Study it. Pay attention to the small details.

Don't forget to include the picture of the infographic in your post and to give credit to the website that you found it on. Don't just take the picture! :-)

Once this has been completed and posted on your blog, read and respond to at least 3 other people’s posts. As always, I look forward to reading your opinion on what you have found!

Good luck!

Mr. Boettger  :-)
