How to Post and Collaborate Online
What to do!
Be on time
Use formal language
Online education tools provide a place for you to use your creative capacities to their fullest.
Online tools are available 24/7, allow for reflective thought, and are a forum to express the best of your thoughts
Critical means to use thought, insight, and analysis when posting or displaying assigments
Make sure your entries are connected to academic material
Make connections with classmates to share ideas
When posting come up with new ideas, connections, and directions
Provide depth and detail to investigate new ideas
Make many posts in a timely manner
Share your ideas often throughout the discussion process
This is not chat or texting
This is an educational arena and posts/discussion should be conducted using complete sentences with few errors
An Irish Airman Foresees His Death
I know that I shall meet my fate
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate,
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan's poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.
William Butler Yeats
Why does the "Irish Airman" go on a mission where he knows he's going to die?
I think the airman goes because he want to fly. He says in lines 11-12 that “A lonely impulse of delight / drove to this tumult in the clouds.” In other words, even though he knows he will “meet his fate” the feeling of flying is so powerful that it is worth the “balance between this life, this death.”
I think this is a really cool idea. I was thinking about a soldier and duty and all that, but you’re right about the “lonely impulse of delight.”
Questions and Prompts
A good answer to a question prompt will be critical, connected to content, and unique (meaning it’s your own creative answer).
A good reply will also be critical, connected and unique.
In other words, students are responsible for looking at academic material and classmate’s responses critically (asking questions, posing theories, poking holes), connectedly (all posts should be related to content), and uniquely (using ones own imagination and reasoning skills)
On the sheets being passed around you will find sample questions and the discussion rubric.
Respond to the sample question using the discussion rubric as your guide for creating an “A” response to the prompt.
When you have written your answer exchange it with someone else and make a reply.
When both the response and the reply are finished return the papers to their owners.
Now let’s exchange papers with someone who hasn’t done the response or the reply
Using the discussion rubric give both the response and the reply a grade
What are the guiding principles of your life?
If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
What plans do you have for life after high school?
What has been your favorite book, story, poem or play during high school? Why?
What reasons, if any, can you think of to read Shakespeare in high schools?
Think back upon your life so far and think about what one thing you would change about it if you could. What is it and why would you change it?
