What we did:
Today we had silent reading for 20 minutes. Afterwards we got into partners and used the laptops to set up our e-portfolios. We watched a brief tutorial about using Wordpress and then started working on the e-portfolios with our partners. The computers were kind of slow so some people had to use the IPads. We made a page for humanities and worked on setting up menus, categories and tags.
Why we did it:
We did it so that we would know how to use Wordpress for future use. We learned how to organize it and later we will be taking pictures of our work so that we won’t lose it.
We could use this skill for future use. For example we could use it in our other classes for organizing or posting our work.
Continue making the pages,menus, categories and tags.
Finish the note making assignment and continue working on genius hour.
If you are having trouble with creating the pages and menus ask Ms.Lees for help during class tomorrow or go to the humanities 8 website and look for the link that helps you make an e-portfolio.
Work on your genius hour project at home and remember to log your process.
