We began today's class with a quickwrite. Here is the prompt:
-What do you most dream of being, doing, or having in the future that you don’t have today?
-Why do you want it?
-What stands in your way?
We then discussed student responses to the quickwrite.
Next, I introduced an article on an emerging piece of technology. Click the link here to access the article. If you were not in class today, watch the video at the bottom of the page before reading the article.

Students worked in groups to complete the questions for the article. This assignment is due on the first day back from the week off.
Next, TLCs guidance and college counselor, Ms. Peterson, gave a presentation on college and the high school work necessary to get to the college and career path of your choice.
Lastly, I handed out the homework for the week of no onsite classes. It is attached below.
