  • New assignment: Please see this link - CREATING INFOGRAPHIC
  • The fifth phase is development of script writing and creating final visual presentation.  This phase must be COMPLETE by TODAY
  • Rehearsal and polishing your presentation on Thursday and Friday during class.
  • The presentation date will be determined by how well things are going on Monday run throughs. We will have a run-through for practice, and then we will be ready to present. The presentation will not be on Feb. 28th due to a middle school tour that day. We will postpone it to March 1, but we will do run-throughs on Monday anyway. (Tuesday is tours, and Wednesday we present.)
Practicum: Continue with portfolio prep - the next review will begin right after Spring Break. I should expect to see new work being displayed and some old work displaced...
