Hey everyone, this isn't Mrs. Byrne writing-- it's Dr. Preston (click this link if you want to verify). Thought I'd take a walk on the sophomore side and see what you're doing.
Your projects look amazing! But, I confess that I don't completely understand them.
So here's the deal: write a 1-3 paragraph comment to this post that describes why you're doing this project and what you hope to achieve in the world (beyond a star on your report card). I will make it worth your while by rewarding anyone who posts by midnight tonight with one essay's worth of "A" credit in my class.
"Wait," says the enterprising sophomore honors student, "Who cares? We're not even in his class!"
No kidding. But, unlike the driver's license you probably don't have yet, this credit is transferable. You can select any senior in my class-- or more than one-- and give them your total of 100 points or divide it among 100 seniors (actually, I only have 95 in class). Of course, you could keep it all to yourself, but then you'll be missing all the fun: Have you ever had a senior owe you a favor?
Here's all you have to do after you get your 100 points. Find a senior online or offline, ask him/her about the work we're doing in class, and determine how valuable you think the work is, both to the author(s) and the rest of the world. Assign your points accordingly by logging on to Project Infinity (or sending our sys admin an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org). That's it.
Have fun... now teach me!
