Lesson One

It’s all about you!

Now you must share who you are with me. This will be your project for the last 9 weeks. It is worth 20% of your grade. This could change due to our situation with school time. Here are some ideas that might help you get started.

  1. You will need to write descriptive paragraphs about yourself in addition to art work (stick figures are ok if you can’t draw, but remember this requires effort to receive a higher grade)! If you would like to do a power point that would be great. Constructing a booklet would also be nice.
  2. Go online and find preprinted worksheets that ask you questions like the one included in this instruction.
  3. Pictures of you are also a great tool for this project.
  4. Tell me stories of when you were a child.
  5. Do you know how far back your family goes? There is a lot of information on the internet that can help you with this. You might enjoy filling out a tree. (Even if you think this is not important now, it might be later).
  6. You can interview your friends about you.
  7. Don’t forget to include the future. Tell me where you see yourself in 5, 10, or 20 years from now. What will you be doing? Will you be married, have children, live somewhere else, or have you made your career your life?
  8. Do you have a problem that prevents you from seeing your future? Look at everything that is going on in your life this could help you see possibilities.

The above are only suggestions. You must use your ideas to make this project great. You have the time don’t put this off! I expect this to be done by April 30th. This is the drop-dead date. If you have questions

If you cannot pull up on My Access here it is

 

When you want to listen to music, you turn on the radio or your MP3 player, or take out one of your favorite CDs. Many times, listening to a particular song can bring back memories of a particular time, event, or person in your life. When you hear your favorite songs, what do you think of?

 

Write a story about the memories which one or more favorite songs bring to mind.
