W5: BHP Unit 2, Lesson 2.0

Opening

If you’re keeping pace with the weekly agendas, you’ll be starting Unit 2 – The Big Bang. However, please remember that BEFORE you do that, you need to take the assessment for Unit 1.

I’ll provide the link to that assessment when you let me know you’re ready to take it. More details about the assessment can be found in last week’s post.

This Week’s Plan

The priorities for the week are explained below. Please remember that watching the videos BEFORE jumping in is critical, please do so in order to get clear about what is expected.

Questions?

If you have questions at any time, please start with re-watching the instructions video(s), linked to above, or reviewing other videos in my Big History Playlist. Instructions and tutorials are added regularly. If that isn’t enough, ask your peers – they’re incredibly capable young men and women and they likely have the answers you need. If you still hit a dead end, please email me, or come see me. During class I may not be available to answer many questions, but you can always make an appointment with me before or after school, or during lunch.

Quote of the Week

“Change is a word for a journey with stress. You get the journey and you get the stress. At the end, you’re a different person. But both elements are part of the deal.”
