For the ill and the absent-minded -

Here, you will find a very brief summary of class discussions and activities, lists of assigned readings and links to other resources. It should serve as a reminder of what we covered in class and/or of what you missed by being absent physically and/or mentally. Please read the posts and talk with your classmates before stopping me in the hallways to ask me if "we did anything important the other day". Feel free to make comments and if you're still confused, please email me!

(NB: I do not condone class absences - you must be present, in class, actively listening and participating whenever possible. Always communicate your absences with the school office as well as with me. It is your responsibility to make arrangements for missed work and/or quizzes. You MUST meet all assignment deadlines.)

A - The one that was gold.

I'm not quite sure if you heard my dirge with D Block, but when I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised to find that you had organized yourselves and created an agenda for the afternoon presenters - wow!

We were able to hear 7 inquiry presentations and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest next class.
