All students need headphones. Hopefully you have your own. If not borrow from the board and return them at the end of the period.

If you did not upload your comic strip to Moodle Friday, you need to get that done!

1.  Take care of school business and check the news on one of the news sites in the widget on the left of this blog. 10 minutes.

2. Watch the 12 webisodes on Stop Bullying Now.  25 minutes (this should take at LEAST 20 minutes of classtime, watch again even if you saw them all last year)

3. At the end of each Webisode is a quiz. Make sure you take the quiz and get all the answers correct. ūüôā 5 minutes

4. When you have watched all 12 webisodes and taken the quizes for each webisode, you my play the games on the Stop Bullying Now website only.
