Congrats. See you at the convention? What was your first entry
about? I had the hardest time with entry 2, the lecture discussion
one but I guess it worked out ok.
- I won't be going to the convention--- I am sure it costs money I
haven't budgeted in.
My first Entry was on Tornadoes, score a 3+. It was real trial to
do this entry do to time. I had students manipulate tornado funnel
size online to determine if pressure influenced the Figita Scale.
Needless to say it was my second highest score---wierd. I thought
this Entry went down the tubes.
My second entry, scored 3+, I did with my Honor's class on acids and
bases by investigating which brand of antacid worked best. I charted
the group results on the overhead and ahd whole class and small group
discussion. This entry was my 3rd highest score.
Entry 3, I scored a 4...need I say more..lol. It was on physical
properties of substances.
Entry 4: this what I have say about it, &^!@#$, I passed it by the
skin of my teeth and I mean skin.
All in all, I passed all assessments but 2 which were at the
assessment center. 2.75 is the lowest passing score I believe for
ALL types of assessement. My lowest score was a 2.0 on one.
So, I am happy. I collect $5,000.00 extra each year in pay from the
state of Oklahoma for the next 10 years.
