Henrietta Lacks (HeLa) Book Project- Fall 2018: This is a semester long project. Each of the 4 installments must be completed in the same composition notebook and submitted on time. The 4 will be averaged together and count as one test grade. You MUST follow the directions EXACTLY for each of the 4 installments. That includes:
A Table of Contents, with question # and the corresponding page # it can be found in your composition notebook (meaning...you must # every page). I recommend leaving 4 blank pages at the beginning of the notebook for a TOC that will correspond to each of the 4 submissions.
YOU MUST 'HAND-WRITE' EACH QUESTION, FOLLOWED BY THE ANSWER.
You must follow the directions exactly to be eligible for the extra credit assignment, which also allows you to drop your lowest test grade at the end of the semester. FYI- The first installment is due the second full week of school. 1- HeLa FALL 2018 Book Questions: FIRST INSTALLMENT DUE: Friday, 8/17 SECOND INSTALLMENT DUE: Friday, 9/14 THIRD INSTALLMENT DUE: Friday, 10/12 FINAL INSTALLMENT DUE: Friday, 11/9
Guidelines for the optional 40 questions(only for those who qualify): These must be in a separate composition notebook. HOWEVER, BOTH JOURNALS (required questions AND extra credit ones) must be turned in TOGETHER, with a rubber band around them both (provide your own rubber band!) and each must have a table of contents (open the link, above, for the specifics). You must hand-write each question and answer, as you did for the required 80. Due date: 12/7/18.
Body Systems Project
This project is optional in 2018. Due date is the Monday after Thanksgiving break. Only 1 day will be allowed for presentations.
3rd Block- Only 10 of 21 students are doing the project (3 groups). Here are the requirements for 3rd Block.
4th block- All but 2 students are doing the project, so groups will have to be sure to stay within the time limit and transitions between presentations will have to be quick. Here are the requirements for 4th Block.
Peer evaluation forms: MUST be turned in AS SOON as you walk into class. You must do one for every group member (including yourself). Forms will remain confidential.
Grading Rubric for each person in the group. I will monitor each group's collaboration and progress over Thanksgiving Break.
