Exploration to Develop: Imagining a hopeful future
Unit 2 Projects:
Due dates in bold on the calendar are check points for completing the project. The chunks are designed to keep students from waiting until the last minute to complete the project as it takes time to complete. Please be mindful that doing a 5-10 minute chunk per day noted will keep the project from overwhelming you.
Students will be given certain jobs for this project, and each job will have a specific pre-planning item to turn in.
The grade is mainly derived from the reflection about the process. This will be several questions, and students will have a week to complete. This is done ideally by doing one to two questions a nigh with spending no more than 10 minutes per night.
Students have permission to read ahead as their schedule permits.
