Last Day Of School!

Enjoy your summer!

Week #8: Last Week of School!

I have to admit, this has been the weirdest school year I have ever experienced, and now it is (finally) over. There is no new work and no check-in this week, so you are DONE…unless you have late work* to be turned in.

*If you are planning on completing late work, make sure it is finished by Monday night and it might be a good idea to email me a list of which late assignments you just completed.

I hope you have a relaxing and safe summer vacation. Keep practicing social distancing and make sure to keep your mind and body fit. Make your self do some sustained silent reading everyday. Make sure you get out of the house and are physically active everyday. Be sure to have positive social interactions with other humans everyday. Okay, that sounded weird, but you know what I mean.

Who knows what the fall will bring, but I do hope you will be able to stop by G-1 to say “Hey.”

WHaG out.

-Mr. Harrison

G-1 says, “See ya later!”
Corona-beard says, “Hey!”

Week #7 Stuff

Directions:

1. Finish the video: Watch the last 71 minutes [Parts 2 +3] of the genocide video from last week.

Here is Part 2 and here is Part 3 of the video. Email me if you are having technical issues.

2. Check-In: After watching the video, email me [harrisw@dearbornschools.org] your reaction to the film. It should be at least a one five-sentence paragraph on your views/observations/comments of how the Rwandan genocide was depicted in the film and what you thought of this horrific event.

Please complete the work and check-in by Friday morning at 10:59 am.

I am sending positive vibrations out to you all!

Week #6 Work + Check-In

We are using the last few weeks of the semester to take a look at the 1994 genocide* in Rwanda. This week, you will complete a Google Form and watch a section of a movie over the Rwandan genocide.

*The word “genocide” was first coined by Polish lawyer Raphäel Lemkin in 1944 in his book Axis Rule in Occupied Europe. It consists of the Greek prefix genos, meaning race or tribe, and the Latin suffix cide, meaning killing.

1. Google Form Work:

Expectations: Please complete the Google Form linked below. You need to have it submitted by Friday morning by 11 am. Don’t forget, school policies on academic integrity still apply. *No suspicious behavior! And just a friendly reminder, you are expected to put in the time and effort needed to complete the assignments, otherwise you will receive another assignment to receive credit and make sure you understand the content.

Important information about using Google Forms:

– Make sure you are logged onto your student Google account in your browser when you open the Google forms. You should be able to see your student account icon in the upper right corner of your browser window.

– Once you begin a form, you must answer every question before submitting. You cannot begin a form, close it out, and then return to it.

– After you hit the Submit button, you cannot access the form again. This means, before you begin a Google Form, make sure you will be able to finish that form and submit before you log off.

2. Video to watch: After completing the Google Form above, watch the 37 minute video on the genocide in Rwanda. Make sure you are logged into your student account for your web browser.

Click here for the WMV video. If that didn’t work, try this MP4 link.

If neither of the links plays the video, try using a different web browser (not Google Chrome). If you can only use Google Chrome, try this. If you are still having issues, email me.

3. Check-In: Due to the shortened holiday week (Happy Memorial Day!), we will count the submitted Google Form work as your check-in. As long as you complete and submit the Google Form on the genocide in Rwanda, you will receive credit for checking-in this week.

Expectations: Please complete the three separate Google Forms (in order) linked below. You need to have all three submitted by Friday morning at 10:59 am.
