First Genius Hour Blog Assignment

Friday, February 27, 2015


Today and every Genius Hour session you are to post a two-to-three sentence report on your progress on your GENIUS HOUR PROJECT.  What did you research?  What did you add?  What did you consider adding but are not sure about?

Make sure you use the label function to label it GRADEME so that I know it is the report.

New Post (or click on pencil)
Label
Type #grademe into the box
Done
Title your post
Write your post
Publish

Be careful!  I am not interested in what you did to your blog.  I am interested in what you did on your Genius Hour Project.

You may use this blog to store pieces that you are considering.  BE SURE TO INCLUDE THE CITATION.  To cite an internet source, use this format:

Author (if given).  "Title of Web Page."  Title of Website.  Date last updated.  Name of organization that sponsors the site.  Date accessed <URL link>.

Examples:

Walker, Gary.  "The Effects of Radiation."  Hiroshima Atom Bomb.  15 Mar. 2000.  Los Alamos Research Facility.  14 Oct 2008.  http://www.larf.org/hiroshima/radiationeffects.htm.

Flannery O'Connor Collection.  7 July 2006.  Georgia College and State University.  31 August 2006.  http://library.gcsu.edu/~sc/foc/htm.


Note that the author in the second example is not given.  It is sometimes very difficult to find all of the information you need to make a proper citation for a website.  Try to find as much information as possible.

My thanks to Mr. Kaio for sharing his "WORKS CITED CHEAT SHEET.  (KEEP THIS FOREVER!) with me.  I hope you still have yours.  Forever is now.
