Summer Reading: Here are the questions we used on Day One:


Due Monday 8/20: Post your comment on our VoiceThread
  1. go to VoiceThread & register: Register for VoiceThread
  2. register requirements: for your registration, type in the first name line by using your first name, last initial, and class period (example: Beth. R. 1st). This way I can see your class period when you are posting responses. Otherwise I will see multiple people with the same name and I won't know who you are.
  3. then come back to the wiki and click on this link for our class
  4. on the VT, read and listen to the first slide. Then click the arrow and respond to one of the remaining three slides and answer the question posted. Use evidence from the article you chose to read, use your opinion, and re-record if necessary (it's easy to edit).
  5. I read the posts so far and they are great. As you can see, students are typing or recording responses. Either choice is fine.
  6. Good Luck! email me or your friends with questions.
