Unit 2 and Unit 3 deadlines for independent studies

  11/02/20 09:12, by Lynne

Good morning everyone! This message is for those who are doing one or more independent studies. Unit 2 ends tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 3, and Unit 3 begins Wednesday, Nov. 4. (You'll notice these dates don't align with the VHS quarter mark and may not align with your other Laurel facilitated classes. Be sure to follow the guidelines for any VHS or Laurel facilitated class you may have).

 
You'll want to check your Unit 2 folder sheets to be sure you have completed the work you planned to do for the unit. Your Unit 2 folder sheets are due to Lynne by Friday, Nov. 6. This includes the number-ranked Evaluation and Completed Work sections, as well as the Unit Self-Evaluation, which you sign and date. Please remember to complete both documents!
 
Unit 3 folder sheets are due to me by Tuesday, Nov. 10. Be sure to include the number-ranked Expectations, your Plan for the unit, your Specifics, and your signature/date.
 
I have sent each of you two Google docs: a Self-Eval for Unit 2 and a folder sheet(s) for Unit 3 for each of your studies. Please use these Google Docs in place of (or in addition to) the paper folder sheets.
 
Please honor the above deadlines; they are not suggestions. One of the required activities for your independent study IS your folder sheet, and that means completing them by their due dates. We are starting the second quarter of the semester, so by now completing the folder sheets should be a routine part of your study and not an afterthought. Part of being a Laurel student, and especially one who is doing an independent study, is accepting responsibility for the work you do. Thank you for fulfilling this part of your study requirements. If you have any questions at all about the folder sheets or evaluation sheets, please ask for clarification.
Thank you!

Video Chat with Strangers for Nov. 2-6

  11/02/20 07:20, by Lynne

Here are this week's groups (for Nov. 2-6):

Ben Kate Ena Ethan

Miles Dexton Fiona

Sam Ambrosia Moriah

Jack Jasper Anneka

Fritz Cadence Lotus

Aiden Cammie Belle

Keep in mind:

You will be coordinating with your group members about when to have your chat. The chat should occur this week. If one person in your group is unable to chat this week (or does not respond to the scheduling request), go ahead and chat with the other person(s) in your group. Just be sure to make every honest attempt to connect with your group members. 

You also are responsible for keeping a log of Laurel service hours, so be sure to include these chats on that log. Include date, those you chatted with, and how long the chat lasted.

In order to earn Laurel service, the chat must be at least 15 minutes long (but can be longer, counted in 15 minute increments). You also must mention in your blog that day that you had the chat, who you chatted with, and how long the chat lasted. Failure to mention these things means it won't count toward Laurel service.

Finally, if your group would like to chat more than once during the week, that's awesome. Just be sure to mention this in your blog post each time a chat occurs.
