I think the video is amusing! Please, watch the video, then give a response/comment to the comment link below.

Any one say, "Blog points for Caleb." ;)

Staying on Track Week 20

Quarter 3 Week 1

Sorry about skipping last week. Not a great explanation or anything, just didn't happen. Busy with the end of the semester, just like you guys.

So, right now you should have Units 1 - 4 complete for your class. If you don't, no big deal. You should probably get in touch with me to make sure that every thing's in-line for your graduation. You know, not passing this class would sort of wreck the whole graduation thing, so how about not letting that happen.

In other news, you should start working on Unit 5 this week. It's about how people influence our government. Most importantly it's about how you can influence our government. Really. You can do it. Not kidding. These dudes, had some ideas about how to do that:

blog ball people
Blogball points for identifying the people in the photo

That's about it. I think we're going to spend four weeks on this unit, so you should complete the Review and the Lecture this week. That'll give you three weeks to work on the project.

That's about it. Let me know what I can do for you.

Staying on Track Week 18

Quarter 2 Week 9

Yes. That's right. It's almost the end of the first semester. The last day of the semester is the 18th. Of January. That's in, like. two weeks. Woah!

You need to have all of the work done from Units 1 - 4. If you need any help with in of it, or if there's anything you'd like to discuss please let me know.

Also, 20% time students. Please stop by some time in the next two weeks to show me what you've been doing with your 20% time. If you don't know what 20% time is, put a comment in the class blog and we'll go from there.

Finish off this semester strong and let me know what I can do to help.

While I have you here, any thoughts on Obama or Huckabee?
