Week of December 23, Tying up loose ends

Hi everyone,

This week we are going to explore the websites of Not in our Town and Not in our School.

Before we do that, we need to take care of some final business before break:
  1. Give me your letter for your buddy TODAY!
  2. If you need more images for your media final, get them today and save them on a flashdrive and in dropbox (, nhs002, EDU_Mann folder, then your group's folder).
  3. Decide as a team if you want one person editing, or if you need two people editing starting after break. Please tell me who will be editing for each group.
  4. Check out Christian's video (congratulations Christian on this well-deserved honor!)
  5. Please visit the websites above(NIOT and NIOS): read different blogs, look at images, look at video clips, and write a post on each site.
Then in Google Docs, answer the questions below:
  1. What articles, videos, photos did you find most interesting or informative and why?
  2. What did you post about when you wrote on their websites?
  3. What inspires you about these sites and this organization?

When you are finished, post your answers to our class blog.

Then read 2 other students' responses and write to them.
