A Flat World and Our Place In It

Today's Learning Targets:
  • Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of wha the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain. (CCR 11.RIT.1)
  • Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings. (CCR 11.RIT.4)
  • Determine an author's point of view or purpose in a text in which the rhetoric is particularly effective, analyzing how style and content contribute to the power, persuasiveness or beauty of the text. (CCR 11.RIT.6)
Today's Activities:

  • Be sure you've walked the wiki and completed yesterday's assignment, bookmarking the pages to your Diigo account.
  • Always use the FCP11-3, flatclassroom and mcahs tags.  Depending upon your topic as you continue to research, also use the proper tags for your topic according to the project Tagging Standards.
  • As you read, think about your subtopic (A, B, C, D, etc.) and how this flattener has impacted your subtopic.  Record notes and important points in Evernote.
  • Complete the Handshake Discussion post with your Topic Team's Expert Advisors.
  • Before posting any discussions on the wiki, please review these Online Discussion Board Netiquette Guidelines.
  • Go to your Team Wiki (Where you actually edit and place your work).
  • Click on the "Discussion" tab.
  • Click on the post titled "EA-Handshake" and post a response in that discussion thread.
  • If you go to Group/Topic 2, this is what it looks like as you click through:
  • Do not post in a separate thread.  Moving forward, know that posts that are titled beginning EA are especially important as they will contain feedback from your Expert Advisors.
  • Once you have completed, screenshot (take a picture of your post), log into your MCA email and share it via Google Docs with Ms. Nestico.
  • Due before class on Thursday.
