Daily Note

Hello. 

My daughter is sick. We are pretty sure it's covid, but so far, the tests are negative. Needless to say, I'll be home with her today and tomorrow. 

  1. I have marked 6 out of 12 IA's. I'l lprobably get three more done today. 
  2. A few of you have asked me for your marks. I'm not really inclined to provide your marks because they really don't matter. The only mark that matters is the one the IB awards you for your IA. 
  3. I think the reason the IB is asking for my marks is so they can evaluate my teaching. For example, if I award you a 22 out of 34 and they award you a 30 out of 34, there might be something I should be looking at. 
  4. I have been including a comment sheet with your IA's explaining my rationale for your marks. 
  5. I'd be happy to zoom with you. Just open a google chat with me.
     
  6. Your work for today is to create a study plan. This is the most important thing you could do right now. I sent you all an email with every standard. Please create a plan for how, when, and where you will study. 

 

 

A little less comfortable

As you revise (study) you should have a clear plan. Look at each and every standard and test yourself. Work with friends to challenge each other. Start revising early, don't wait until the last minute.

Ideally, you should be revising every day for about 30 minutes.

Our Big idea

The big idea for today is Revision.

The essential questions for this topic are:

How do we study and learn so we can transfer our understanding and knowing?

It takes time to explore and really understand a big idea. If you want to

We are learning this because as a designers must understand scientific and technical innovation. Designers use systems, models, methods, and processes to solve problems.
