We had a wonderful guest speaker Monday afternoon. Brian Schmidt, the Nobel Laureate who attended Bartlett High in Anchorage. More info at http://www.nobelprize.org/mediaplayer/index.php?id=1727.
After working through a design process, students are working on creating a prototype. 
We are mostly complete with beginning of year assessments for reading, writing, & math. Whew.
Students are assigned to bring a book on Tuesday for our first book project. It should be a book they have not read yet, about 150-300 pages. Something they enjoy reading. Fiction or non-fiction.
Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
