You can start as soon as you get your code.  It will take you through the fake testing tutorial first before the real test.
When you finish some of you need to revise your letter to a freshman. If you think that might be you, get started.

Last day of class :(

Good morning,

You #1 and #2 are required tasks today.

1. Write a letter to one of my future students, an incoming freshmen.  Include advice about this class and high school in general. Be specific. Include your name. If the new student can find you in the fall and you come visit me together I'll give you some candy or something.  (If you know you won't be here in the fall it would be good to tell them that too.) Type it in word or docs and print it out. I MUST have yours before you leave.

2. Write a letter to yourself in September. Use Futureme.org to send an email to your future self. Include things you think you might forget, (not passwords), or advice you want to use to help you do well in 10th grade. Set your future letter to arrive on September 4, 2012.   Be sure to check your email TODAY to verify your address for futureme.org to work for the fall.

3. If you have time evaluate some of the projects you didn't see yesterday here. I could use a little more feedback from you about projects that are highlighted in lavender.

4. Write another futureme.org letter to yourself dated June 12, 2015.  You should be just about to graduate when you get it.

See you at our final on Tuesday 6/12.

And remember...

Textbook Returns and Online Test Practice

Good morning,

Today we will have textbook returns. At our scheduled time we will all go down to the library to return textbooks. If any of your other teachers have told you that you need to keep a textbook to study for finals you can. You will need to return that book to the textbook window after the final for that class.

If you forgot to bring any textbooks to class today you can return them to the textbook window after school or at lunch another day this week, but not during class time.

Thursday afternoon will be the last day to use lockers, so please only keep textbooks you need for finals. Correction Locker Clean Out is Wednesday 6/6 during ADVISORY!

Also today, we need to practice taking an online test. Your final is going to be online, so this is to familiarize you with that process and make sure it works for us. To take the practice test you will need a test code that I will give you.  This code only works on this test and will not work on any other test.

Before the test, you will do a short tutorial about online testing. Go slowly and read the directions. This information may help you do better on the real test. 

Please go to the START PAGE and enter your code when I give it to you. Once you enter your code you may proceed at your own pace.
