Today I gave the students a thorough lesson on ACADEMIC INTEGRITY.
After reviewing the student submissions for I #8 Natural Resource Research Project, it became obvious that students were not citing their sources and violating the HSD's Academic Integrity policies.
I have asked students to complete the "Academic Integrity Worksheet" after participating in a whole group discussion of the PowerPoint presentation provided to me by our Dean of Students, Mr. Takata.
I have also asked students to complete a chart on the back of the worksheet which details their Academic Integrity violations on their project (I #8) as well as what they should have done differently to have Academic Integrity. I am asking students to do this assignment as a reflective experience instead of issuing the consequences of a ZERO on this project and referral to administration. If this assignment is completed with Academic Integrity, I will grade their I #8 project and not issue consequences for the violations of HSD policy.

MONDAY 1/14/19 - INDIVIDUAL STUDENT REPORTS (ISR) AND MISSING/INCOMPLETE ASSIGNMENTS FOR PROGRESS REPORTS
Today students were given their Individual Student Report (ISR) which details all of their grades for Trimester 2.
I have asked them to have this signed by their Parent/Guardian so that everyone is aware that latework can still be turn-edin for full credit by 1/25/19 for the Progress Report for Tri 2.
Students were given the entire period to review and list their missing/incomplete assignments to help them determine what still needs to be done to raise their grade.
I will be here everyday after school (not Wednesdays- due to site meetings) to help students achieve their goals by the Progress Report due date.
Todays student volunteers presented their projects to the class for Peer Review. If no volunteers were available, students worked toward completing the peer review in their small groups.
Their peer review worksheets were to be turned-in by the end of the period.
I have posted two student sample projects here for students that were unable to complete their classwork and need to complete their work at home.
ISN Check 06 Peer Review has been moved to tomorrow to coincide with our open note Quiz #4.
Todays student volunteers presented their projects to the class for Peer Review. If no volunteers were available, students worked toward completing the peer reveiew in their small groups.
Today students were asked to turn-in their I #8 Natural Resource Research Project. I went over how to submit the project electronically and how to submit the rubric for grading.
After this, I projected my ISN to show students an example of a nearly complete ISN Check 06 which is due Wednesday for Peer Review (Quiz #4 on Thursday). I also passed back any work I had from before break.
Students then had 30+ minutes to work towards completing ISN Check 06.
