Looking at Your Options

I have received emails about a few of the learning targets.  Here is the plan for each one:

  • 5 students asked for more work on Habit 5: I can make strategic use of appropriate tools.  
  • 3 students asked for more work on SLT TN1.  If you want to raise your grade from a 0 on this SLT, the best way to do it is to submit the Capacity Matrix.  If you’re not sure what to put on the Capacity Matrix, send me an email, or click here.
  • 2 students each asked for help on TN4, Habit 3 and Habit 4.  You will receive a homework packet over break regarding these learning targets.
