4) Revise from Feedback

  • Click HERE to go to the How to Be Happy When… assignment in Google Classroom.
  • Reread the steps on the Road Map. What do you still need to complete?
  • Find the feedback to your draft (in Google Classroom). Reply back to what I wrote: Say thank you and explain what you plan to revise or complete. If you have a question, write it here.
  • Open your own Instruction Guide (in Drive). If you want, open it in split screen so you can still see the feedback.
  • You have the rest of class to revise, polish, and publish the guide. If you already published on Friday, there is no need to share your link again. Your revisions will automatically appear.

5) Exit Ticket: Socrative

Homework: Read 30 minutes daily. Charge iPad. Revise, Proofread, & Publish Instruction Guide (DUE Wed.). Bring Book(s)/ID to Library Tomorrow.
