After last weeks DQ and reading everyone's opinion on DQing I am glad to hear that most of you find worth in the DQ. You don't all like them but the majority of you agree that we should continue to do them. Some of you simple want them for the easy points they provide that have helped your grades. Others of you hate them because of the fact they have hurt your grade. Some of you are learning and using the DQ as a place to express yourself and improve your communication and typing skills. We may have some slight variations of the DQ, but for the most part the DQ will remain the same and students who didn't even complete a response last week DO NOT ever complain because you were given a chance to be heard but didn't take it.
DQ's will still be weekly, will still be mandatory, will be graded a little harder on your efforts, and will now be based upon articles that are to be read from a handout in class on Monday. The week 10 DQ has already been posted and if you are a head of things you can complete during Spring Break. You will continue to server LD for not posted DQ's but now you will have to write them instead of typing them during that time. Finally for those of you without Internet you will be given 5 min at the end of the period on Friday for DQing purposes if you want to use it.
Mrs. Miller will use the blog to help students ask questions, remember what we did in class and just a place to discuss class topics.
