One Post to Organize it all!

Now, it is done. I have officially finished my online unit and wow what a whirlwind that was! I am so happy with the work I’ve done in trying to create an inquiry-based classroom online. I do not like lectures or notes one bit, and for Workplace I think I need to focus more on […]

That’s it, that’s all!

My final project came straight from the textbook. I took one look and knew that was exactly what I needed to wrap up my unit.   Overview Metalworkers, seamstresses, carpenters, and many other tradespeople use diagrams to design or build things.
