5.  Fill out the remainder of the required information.  

6.  When everyone is finished with the assessment, we will set up our blogs in Blogger.

7.  Once everyone is done with the vocabulary assessment, we will talk about creating projects.

8.  After creating a project, we will look at the Creative Commons Search link on Classroom and discuss how it can be used to find pictures for blog posts and how Noodletools can be used to correctly cite pictures taken from Google Images, etc.

9.  Students should complete an exit ticket before leaving today.
