We started again with SSR.

Next I handed out (or we continued to work) on the dystopia creative writing and drawing assignment. If it is not finished today it is homework.

Today we started with our design terms quiz.

Afterwards I assigned partners and made sure everyone knew what they were working on. Then the partners got together and drew up a dummy design and made an outline of what content would go on their page/spread. The web designers had to submit a proposal about what content would go on their website. I need this dummy turned in from every group before we can begin work in the lab.

Today we began with SSR. Next we finished our work with “Searching for Summer” and afterwards I handed out a creative writing/drawing assignment where you will create your own dystopia, draw a picture of it, and write three paragraphs about why the world is so bad on the back. I will give you all class tomorrow to wrap up that assignment.

Today I introduced your final project, which we will begin work on this Wednesday. After introducing the final project I went over how to use the different programs, which we will be using to complete the project.

Today we started with SSR so I could check and see the progress that people were making on their books as we head into the final week before everyone should be ready for book talks.

Afterwards we either began or continued our work with “Searching for Summer.” I hope to conclude our work with that story tomorrow.

Today we began with NPR news.

Then we looked at design examples to see some great examples of what you can do to tell a story in unique ways.

With remaining time we discussed how yearbook layout differs from newspaper layout.

Study your terms next week. We’ll review Monday and take our final quiz/test. Then we will begin learning how to use the software that you’ll use to create your final project.

Today we started with SSR.

Next we moved onto a discussion of utopias and dystopias, where I asked you to get into small groups and generate ideas of what would make a society a utopia or a dystopia.
