Christmas Tree

Here is this year's decorated tree. My niece and I play a game where I put my two Pittsburgh Steelers ornaments on the front of the tree, she takes them and hides them on the back. I find them and put them back up front. I hide the lowly browns ornaments in the back.

Master's Project Presentation

Here is what my presentation board looks like. I was going to do a prezi on, but I can't find my flashdrive where my graphs are located. The letters are actually post it letters, and the tops don't stay down very well, even though I used poster tape on the very toop.

I am presenting this Tuesday night.

Still Working on my Project

Last week, I spent about 6 hours, over two nights working on my project. I sent it to my professor to read it and edit it. I took it with me to Columbus, and my friend read it, and suggested some changes. This past Tuesday, I spent about 4 hours working on it, making the changes, and I sent it back to my professor. Some how, the changes I had accepted, that my professor said to make, didn't take. I have no idea what happened. I can't work on it at home, since I typed it up on a PC. I will work on it again Monday.

Next weekend, I will work on my Presentation board and my Prezi that I will do for it. My project is due, Tuesday, November 30.

I'm Related to a Stinker

I went to see my brother this morning. I took a bunch of library books with me so I would have a bunch of books to read. He was awake when I got there a little after 10 am. He wanted to wear my coat, nothing new, so I took it off and put it on him, and zipped it up. By the time I was done reading the third book, he was asleep. I woke him up, and he moved over to the mat to go back to sleep. I made him get up, so I could get my coat back. He is a real stinker!!!!!!!!! Going to sleep on me. I will see him again sometime next week.

Working on my Master's Project

From the thirty-emails I sent out, only 10 responded back to me. I did not ask my principal for permissions, I just told her I was going to do it. I knew she was supporting me. Another school and my own, I had problems sending out the email, but I was able to do so, with some help. I gave the teachers two weeks to take my survey. I got 19 responses, and I am pleased with that. Last week, I emailed three teachers about setting up a time for the interview. I need to call a couple of teachers, and I keep forgetting to do so.

This evening, I spent a couple of hours at Akron U's library. I went through the data of the survey, and made 7 different graphs. The graphs are either bar or circle graphs. I made a graph for the different grade levels being taught, the benefits and challenges of using thematic units, how many people answered certain questions. I also started to change the verb tense from present and future to past tense. I didn't finish that, since I had to email my prof a question. I think I also have to rewrite certain parts, since I made a few changes after I wrote my proposal this past summer. I am presenting my project in 4 weeks from tonight.
