Each group is assigned a specific problem from the set for which they must submit a solution and an explanation on the class wiki (a Google doc displayed on a page of the class site). Then the group must select a problem that is similar to their own and compare the approaches for both problems. Each member of the group must demonstrate participation on the wiki during each grading period by color-coding their submissions. Wiki problems are graded once per 8-day cycle according to a rubric that can be found on the "Files" page of the site. Students may also comment on each others' work. The comments are not visible on the site; they are only visible from the original Google doc.Find an equation of a plane given a point and a normal vector.
Find an equation of a plane through three given points.
Determine whether a line is parallel to a plane.
Find the acute angle of intersection between two planes.
Find the distance from a point to a plane.
Find the distance between two parallel planes.

They research and propose story ideas to a team of student leaders, who then assign reporting and production tasks to each student in the class. Student reporters interview sources and write stories; student editors edit stories; student design and technology editors assign graphics and video production tasks. Students use Adobe InDesign to produce the newspaper; FinalCut Pro to produce videos for the website, and WordPress to manage and update the website. Reporting, Editing and Production Rubrics guide student work, and students regularly reflect on new learning and set goals for future learning.Students will learn:

2/3/2012 9:12:16arri.weeks@ncps-k12.orgSchool ResourcesInstructionCore Values, Beliefs & ExpectationsSenior PoetryEnglishEnglish12Weeks, ArriOtherIn Class AssignmentAs an introductory assignment, students are using the ipods from the Library Media Center to capture an image from either the cafeteria or the lobby to investigate a subject they encounter everyday. The objective in this lesson is to have students look closely and critically at their environment and pick out details. Using their images, students then completed a handout, answering the questions "What details are present in your image?" "What mood is the image conveying?" "What topics are brought up by your image?". Finally, students were instructed to come up with a minimum of 50 words that they associate with the image.In terms of assessment, I am looking at the students' ability to look at their everyday environment more closely and in a new way. I will assess their ability to do this based on the details they pick out and the words they associations they make beyond the literal.

Anchor Standards
1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text
7. Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.
1.1 Problem Solving, 1.2 ReflectionRL.11-12.1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.

Close Looking Close Reading

Objective: Students will be able to begin to define what poetry is.
Students will be able to select and object to which they will look at from a different perspective.

1. We need to begin to come up with a working definition of what poetry is. So in your journal notebooks, answer the question:

• What is your definition of poetry? What characteristics must something have in order for it to qualify as poetry? (5 min)

2. Students will read and annotate the document that discusses what poetry is and the two poems. (5 min)

• Annotations should include New Information, Significant Information, Key/New Terms, and Confusing Information

3. Based on what you read and what you wrote down, what do you think poetry is? I will ask for a volunteer to take notes on the board as we discuss.
Create working definition of poetry.
• Characteristics
• Requirements
• What is it not? (7-10 min)

4. Ok, we’re going to tweak this idea of a definition of poetry over the semester, but using what we have let’s look at the poem on the back.

5. Appreciating poetry is closely related to image-making and appreciation. Just as you will look at poems to come to some sort of understanding, so too will you need to look closely at your environment and topics close to your world.

Your task is to go into the school lobby or the cafeteria and take an image of an object, scenery, person,
landscape, etc. that you see everyday, using the image-making process to help you examine your subject more closely. The photo can be a detail, close up, medium shot, or long shot. How you compose the
image will say as much about your subject matter as the subject itself.

When you are done email a copy of the image to me ( and to yourself. You
have 15 minutes to complete this task and return to the room.

6. When students come back to the room they are to complete the handout.

Students were required to choose a subject that they might be majoring in next year. From a listing of these subjects or disciplines a topic was to be chosen for research.  Mixed media could be used  for its discussion. For instance, if one were going to be an art major than research on the "Art of the Holocaust" could be chosen. One would research an artist of the time and create a presentation and  paper on the subject. Oral presentation skills were also stressed.  This is just one example of topics chosen.Stusdents would be  involved in selecting a topic of their choice., whether it be in art,music,history, science ,finances, medicine, psychology or religion They would be researching an area that would be ancillary to our literature study . Looking at other things that happened during this time in history would create a fuller, rounder picture of this period. 1.3 Communication 1.2 Reflection

As a class, each section collaborated on publishing their essays with embedded images into an digital anthology of their essays. Visual media can exert an invisible influence on issues dealing with gender roles, national identity, tolerance, politics, home life, and work place, among others.

Students will:
interpret images, looking for deep meaning through careful and layered examination

· analyze the ways readers and writers are influenced by individual, social, cultural and historic contexts

· use the writing process to prepare, publish and present work appropriate to audience, purpose and task

· use standard English in both writing and speaking
