Turn to the person sitting next to you. What's the most interesting thing you've found in your research so far? What's been the most difficult thing about your research so far?
Conferences with Lori

Done with the Survey? Check out this Deep Reading Advice from past seniors!
Resilience Project Team Leader Meeting!
You do not have to have every source for the Deep Reading assignment come from the Durango Public Library Academic Database. They just need to be ACADEMIC sources.
See the second to last page of the Deep Reading Assignment for a breakdown of academic vs. non-academic sources.
Conferences with Lori
Finish reading, annotating/notetaking on your first source.
Hey Seniors- I have completely lost my voice, and have a fever, so I will not be with you today. Please head to Ashley's at the start of 3rd period for the starter and review of reading scholarly articles. Someone please grab the copies of this and the deep reading assignment from the front table to take with you! I will see you all tomorrow.
Want to do honors this semester? Let me know by the end of the day today! You can do this in person or via email.
Starter 2: Research Quote
Read the quote linked above. As you read it, make mental notes of sentences or ideas that strike or surprise you. When you are done reading, respond in writing to the following questions:
Review of Deadlines, etc.
For my own peace of mind, lets review deadlines, etc.
How to Read a Scholarly Article
Pull up ONE of the articles you found on the library database yesterday.
Deep Reading Assignment
Start Your Research!
I suggest finding at least 2-3 articles to get you started before you start your deep reading. So spend today using the abstract and conclusion to sift through the articles you find.
Find at LEAST one good source from an academic journal or publication.
Starter 1: Independent Work Survey
Take the survey linked above! Make sure the click the "send me a copy of my results" button at the bottom of the page before you submit- we'll be coming back to these later! We'll review the results as a class, and then in pairs you'll discuss the following things:
With your table group, check in about the current state of your research question, project, etc. What feedback did you get from your POL? What work have you done since then? How are you feeling about your readiness to jump into research?
Update Research Question/Project Document
Update the document above with your post-POL research question and project.
Info Dump: Review Deadlines, Honors, Expectations, etc.
Using the Library Database
Follow along with Lori into the magical world of the Durango Public Library's academic database!
Find (but don't read) 3-5 potential sources that seem to be about your general topic. Have them bookmarked in the library folder so that you can easily access them at the start of class tomorrow.
Lesson plans posted daily. Come here to see what you missed, find instructions, etc.
