personal commitments

summary:  
we began by discussing the norms contract that students developed in class on tuesday. next, students discussed a norm that they would like to work on in order to make our community stronger and happier, and wrote a personal commitment explaining that choice. next, i gave students feedback on the most recent draft of their 70X encyclopedia projects; two groups of students had focused independent work time, while i worked with one larger group on a new way of organizing their writing that would make the 'big change' and their subject's response to it more clear.

homework:
complete new draft of encyclopedia page (due 10/17 @ 830am in mels lobby)
