My big accomplishment this week was finishing The Kite Runner. That was my goal, and I managed to reach it. Go me. I also started with the picture notes, and I am going to try to finish them up today. I think the picture notes are a super cool idea, and I wish that more teachers had you take notes on books like that. It provides you with the page number and the context of whatever you’re citing. It adds to the explanation on each of the slides, and really shows the whole point of taking notes in the first place. We also did some elevator talks. At first I didn’t really like them, but now I definitely understand the point of them and can get behind them.
As the writer of my group, I’m a little anxious about the due date of this project. I am about to be gone three days next week for early spring break, and I won’t be back until the Tuesday after break. This freaks me out a little bit because it basically leaves my group to do most of the work, and that’s not fair to them. I also like to be somewhat in control of the things that are happening, and it will be just a little challenging to do that from Florida.
I stumbled across this little article a few weeks ago and thought it was pretty cool. It’s not super relevant to anything we did in class this week, but it’s a little relevant at least to my role in this project. I might reference it as I write, I might not. We shall see I suppose.
