If you’re misplaced your spring break book or just need another reminder, you can find the break activities here. Remember that you’ll need to complete the checklist on page two before we return from break; that involves posting a picture of your map, commenting on your map with an explanation of your project idea and research focus, taking the survey (find the link below), and completing the break activities. When you do your break activities, update your individual post by editing it or commenting on it and discuss the activity and what you have learned from doing it. Detailed instructions are in the book; if you don’t have it, ask your friends for help and advice. You don’t need to do these in order, but the break activities are:
1. Watch or read something that’s related to your project idea. That might involve Netflix or a magazine or asking Google or something more creative.
2. Click on a category on the right that’s related to your own interests (like “film’) and comment on at least three other project ideas.
3. Find someone to call/interview/email about your project/research idea. Document this conversation.
4. Post the link to your post to Facebook or somewhere else where you can get feedback from your friends on your ideas.
5. Find an example of what you want to do. If you want to create a website, find a website that’s similar to what you’re interested in making.
