Thu. 2/15 – Media Project Overview

NO HOMEWORK TONIGHT.  If you choose to, you can read to keep up with your book club goals.

TOMORROW IS READ ANYTHING DAY.  Bring a book, magazine, or other reading material that you would like to enjoy.  Of course, you can read your novels for the project.  Stop by the library to check out a book for the break and start it tomorrow!

TODAY’S GOAL IS TO learn more about some of the media project options, and use your time today independently to finish notebook work, project drafts, or read.

DO NOW – Take out your project handout.  Write down the project due date: Tuesday, March 13.  As we go over the media project ideas, jot down any relevant information that is important to you.
