A few of you were doing some excessive texting yesterday!  If you keep it up, I will take your phone and place it on my desk during your class time.

Mr. Slater is thinking of having a Community Service Work Day here at NW Tech.  Students would be allowed to help clean up outside, wash windows, etc. instead of sitting in class working on assignments one day.  Are you interested in participating?  If so, please email me today and say “Yes I want to participate in the community service project at NW Tech.”

If you will not be in class on Thursday, be sure to submit your time sheets and printout of completed work today since we do not have class on Friday!

The following two assignments will count as grades and are due by the end of class on Thursday:

Assignment 1:  ARE YOU GUILTY OF USING ALL CAPS IN YOUR WORK?  IF SO, PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE “ALL CAPS: TO SET OR NOT TO SET” BY FONTS.COM.   As a quiz for today, email me the following: 1) When is it acceptable to use all caps in a design such as a poster or brochure? 2) Should you use all caps in the body or main message of a poster or brochure?

Assignment 2:  Mr. Slater wants to hear from you!  Please answer the following questions regarding Oklahoma education.  Email me your answers.

1.  What is the  purpose of education, specifically through the typical high school years?  You may have multiple responses.  Responses should address the question, “What good for whom?”.  Answers should be focused on student conditions that change as a result of education, not an explanation of school activity.

2.  How good is our pre-K – 12th grade educational experience and how do we know?  As you answer this question, please focus on tangible evidence, preferably with comparables in time or location.  Multiple data sources may be included and may provide different answers about different aspects of our school system.  You  may include CareerTech, charter schools, etc. if you wish to round out your explanation of the response. To the extent possible, tie your answers to the purpose statements you identify in Question 1.

3.  If you make a case that our system needs to improve, what are the challenges that must be addressed?  If you make a case that our system is satisfactory, what are the challenges to maintaining this quality?  To the extent possible, respond on issues that are within the control of the system so solutions can be considered.

4.  What are some reforms or conditions that can either improve or maintain our system?
