Another reminder….genocide project due Wed!

Because this project is due Wed, and needs to be actually set up, you will lose 25% per day if it is late….originally I said I would not accept lates….hopefully NOBODY will fall into this category.  You still have one more day off to work on it 🙂

GENOCIDE PROJECT DUE WED FEB 11

Hi all,

Just a reminder that your project is due next Wed!  We don’t have school next week UNTIL Wed, so MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT HERE AND READY TO GO – as in SET UP during class.

We will set up all the project and have the other class members have a look at them.

Pretend it is REALLY Expo – bring any 3D visuals, props, etc that you need.

I won’t see you again until then…feel free to email me over the weekend if you have questions 🙂

Genocide Project: Videos to watch

This project will be a science fair-type project which we will display at Expo.

In order to better understand your topic, you will watch the video below assigned to it.  As you watch:

i) You will need to take notes on things you think are important
ii) You need to write down questions that come up as you watch – things that you need/want to know more about
iii) Also consider what you would like others to know – what is important?  what stories do you need to tell?
