Written communication is important in our world today. Remote communication via computers and networking is invaluable. In order to encourage any of my students to share what they learned in class and re-explain it in their own words, ANY STUDENT of mine that leaves a written explanation or finds neat link to a site about what we are learning in science will get a positive recognition from me- For example, extra credit points or a few Mot-Money tix. I would love for YOU to share what you know. Even if you find a cool news story or link about something we are learning about- that counts too. Just explain why it is related to our science class lessons.
