Maybe you heard we took the test using google forms. Overall, it went really well. One of the best features of giving the test online is the amount of viable data I receive. Not only that, but it's all created for me. For someone who always seems to be pressed for time, this is a huge bonus.
Let me give you some examples:
-This chart shows us that the majority of students know their continents and oceans. I say majority because this is only one continent from one class. Most classes had 2 or 3 students who missed 2 or 3 continents and/or oceans. But overall the students knew their stuff. At any rate, all the kids from this class could tell me where Africa is.
If you want the extra credit for reading and discussing the blog today, discuss the difference between cultural borrowing and cultural diffusion. Discuss how you did on the test. Discuss any of the other questions we went over in class - maybe the one about private business ownership.
When you're done discussing, find a scrap of paper and write the difference between cultural diffusion and cultural borrowing. Then, have the adult you discussed it with sign it. Turn it in tomorrow. See you then.
(If you have facebook or twitter or whatever, and are friends with others who are also my students, you could remind them that this is an easy way to get some extra credit. If any of them come up to me tomorrow and tell me they did the extra credit because you reminded them, I'll give you some sort of treat for helping them out.)
*Also, apologies for spelling Mr. Krecsmar's name wrong, not once - but twice. Hopefully he doesn't grade on spelling. Maybe I'm just ethnocentric against Hungarians. Bonus bonus points if you write a p.s. at the bottom of your extra credit and give me a definition for "ethnocentric."*
