Students are working diligently on their Inquiry Projects. These projects are very exciting and the kids are exploring some fascinating questions. Last week we worked on developing an overarching questions and subquestions that can guide our research. We also reviewed the deadlines and milestones for this massive project. While much of their work can be done in class, students will need to budget some time to work on their projects at home. We will also try to make the computer lab available during Advisory time whenever possible.Students who want to bring their own electronics from home to work on this project need to have parent permission. The form for permission is in their google.docs.  If students have any questions about their paper or their project, they should talk to me ASAP. My special thanks to Dale Briggs for all of his hard work to convert the computer lab to a Windows format. This will make it much easier for kids to research, write and create their final products. Students will still need to store their work either on a flash drive or in google.docs.
