    Forensic Agenda  - May 4th - May 8th 

    Seniors  - Papers Due by May 12th   Juniors Papers Due by May 13th    

    Seniors presentations begin on May 13th followed by the Juniors.  Check the Serial Killer Line Up for the date and time you will be presenting.

     

    I am getting this information out to as soon as I could.  I received the information at 5:00 p.m. this afternoon, that school would be ending early this year.  Due to that information, we must adjust the schedule for presentations.  Please look at the Serial Killer Line Up for the date and time you will be presenting.  The seniors last day is May 15th and the Juniors last day is May 20th. Do NOT wait until the night before with any questions or adjustments you must make to the date and time you will be presenting; I will not be able to make adjustments if you wait until the last minute and I do not want your grade to suffer.

    I will not be holding class this week, but please reach out to me through email with any questions you may have.  2nd period students, please reach out to either Mrs. Barb or myself with any stuggles you are having.

    Please type your paper in Office 365 and share the document with me when you are finished.  You will need to create your PowerPoint presentation using Office 365 as well.  You will present your information using Teams just as I have been doing during our time of remote learning.  

    Please check the "Serial Killer Line-Up" in the folder under Forensics on the web-page to find out your date and time that you will be presenting.  You are only required to join the class on the date and time that you are presenting, but I highly recommend you join at least one other day so that you can see how your fellow students are doing their presentations and the feedback we are giving.  Students will be presenting at 3 different times during the day, so hopefully one of those times will work for you to watch other presentations.  

     I will be holding class on May 11th to explain how to share your screen during your presentation if you do not know how to do so already.  I will also answer any questions you may have.

     

    *****Please use this week, to research and type your paper.  I am looking forward to hearing about what you have learned about your serial killer.
