Starting today, students will be required to keep a journal of the day’s happenings. The journal will need to answer at least 2 of the questions listed here each day keeping in mind you must use different questions each day. The length of the journal entry must be at least 3 sentences with correct spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. The journal entry must be completed by midnight each day of class.
A new aspect of the astronomy class will also be a periodical check for understand. Today there were a few questions I asked. Each questions will be given a score between 0 and 2 where 0 means no understanding of the concept and 2 means evidence given the student has a pretty good understanding.
The remainder of the class, students looked over a website about the Hubble telescope.
