We began the day by completing our work with our author Malcolm Gladwell’s interview with The National prior to our election last night. We had to think somewhat retrospectively about it considering we now know the outcome.
From there I began taking us through this PowerPoint to introduce Blink. We will finish tomorrow before beginning to read the intro of our book (I will distribute books then). You will finish the introduction over the weekend for homework.
Tomorrow, I am assigning your discussion leader/socratic seminar group assignment for the book as well as your reading quizzes for those chapters. We will discuss then and at the beginning of next week.
With about 20 minutes left today, we took some time to silently read our SSR books and decompress.
Homework tonight: Create a turnitin.com account by following these directions (with pictures/without pictures and specifically regarding submissions) with the attached ID/password for your specific hour.
