  • You will perform the lesson and each person will get with Mrs. Davis to look at your printed project. She will assist you in making sure you understand how to do the lesson and how the final product will look. She will give a check grade for this.

  • This wiki is to demonstrate the features as shown in the book and share the vocabulary from the section. You are required to use a screen shot (Ctrl+Print Screen), a table of contents, at least 2 headings and at least 3 contextual links. (Hyperlinks are shown in the team assignment below.

Proofreading of Final Product Grade WA.1.1

  • You will receive the final product from each classmate. You may proof it, mark it, and return it as you share with them what task was performed incorrectly. At five minutes till class end, all corrections are finished. You will use the production sheet to mark what is done (and is a 100 in your mind). Proofread well, if you tell me it is a 100 and you've missed something, you will receive those points off of your proofreading grade. You will receive the answer key from me.
