student will share at least 2-3 of their 5 their personal non-negotiables they must have (or must not have ) in a person to be in a relationship. Make sure these are incredibly unique to you, not general ideas like a good or a nice person. What do those two words mean specifically to you. Explain exactly what you mean about each non-negotiables-for example, if I say one of my negotiables is intelligence, I need to say exactly what that means to me! Intelligence to me is someone whose brain can very quickly, processes information, both cognitive and emotional, and someone who is excited about learning anything they don’t know.You will come up with 5

Guidelines for the ‘Concert Review’
Performance Review Information
The review for this class must be of a performance of rock or pop music. This includes all styles of rock, metal, pop, rap, alternative, etc. No country, jazz, folk, or classical. Obviously Covid has effected many industries, but perhaps none more than the performing arts. You have two opions for a concert review. If you can find a safe, preferrably outdoor live show, this would be option one. If not, find a FULL CONCERT on Youtube to watch and review. Then simply answer the questions below.
Think of yourself as the reviewer for a major newspaper. Evaluate a musical event based on your personal reactions and use the vocabulary and criteria discussed in class lectures. Be specific with your descriptions of the events and your responses, both emotionally and intellectually.
The purpose of these reviews is to take the concepts and musical styles discussed in class and apply them to understanding a ‘live’ performance. Keep your mind, eyes, and most importantly your ears open.
One Review of two pages is due the 15th(last) week of class. It must be a minimum of two typed pages, double spaced. Your grade will drop significantly if it is less than two pages.
Reviews should include the following:
1. Name of the artist or group. Describe the musician(s) and instruments played. Talk about the roles of the instruments as learned from the lecture in week one.
2. Do some research on the group and provide some historical background and a few career highlights.
3. Describe two or three of the songs. Discuss any musical elements which stood out. For example:
Lyrics- What was the song and did it affect you emotionally?
Style- Rock and Roll, R and B, Hip Hop, Grunge, etc.
4. Which was your favorite song and why? Which was your least favorite and why?
5. All music has precedent; influences that the artist has that come through in the music. Pick a tune or two, and using your new knowledge of rock history, see if you can find the hidden influence. In other words, “this band sounds like ???” I can tell because________!
6. Did you enjoy the performance on the whole? Why or why not?
Go to the following website and review the chart, Typical Water Uses at Home.
Water Questions and Answers
Determine how much water you use in a typical week. Be very specific (use each category listed) and show calculations for you (and if possible each person in your home). Make your calculations and show totals in a spreadsheet. If there is something that you do not do (for example outdoor watering) put Not Applicable on the chart.
After reviewing your spreadsheet, answer the following:
How much water do you (or your family) use in a week, month, year?
How could you save water?
Determine how many people live in your town. Based on your calculations, estimate how much water your town uses every year (by volume). How does your water use compare with other Americans?
This should be 300-500 words. APA Citations and References required as appropriate.
4 pages about teaching and teachers
What is Teaching? What are the purposes of teaching? Is the teacher the source of knowledge? Is teaching a one-way or two-way venture? How will you decide what to teach? Do you consider yourself a teacher of students, or of content, or both? Is teaching better described as a set of skills and knowledge, or as a set of values and attitudes? What is it about teaching that you most look forward to, and that you most fear? What is your metaphor for the teacher? What are your ethical responsibilities as a teacher? How will you contribute to the profession of teaching?
What is Learning? What is knowledge? If you teach and students don’t learn, whose problem is that? How will you know when students have learned something? Are students empty vessels into which you will pour knowledge? What does learning mean for students of different abilities or ethnicities or genders or economic status? How will your classroom be responsive to the multiple communities represented in your students? Do all students need to learn the same thing? How important is classroom environment to learning? How will you decide what content to teach?
What is Schooling? What are schools for? How is schooling in a democracy different from schooling in a totalitarian state? What responsibilities do you have as an employee of the public, and what happens when you disagree with public policy? What about when you disagree with parents? What are your goals for your students?
Week 15 – Assignment A – Writing Project 2 – Researched Argument Third Draft Due
This is your final draft for your Portfolio, so make it good!
When you write an academic essa’y, you’ll need to integrate sources into your writing. Quotations, summaries, and paraphrases will help you develop your argument but they cannot speak for you. You need to find a balance between the words of your sources and your own voice, so that your readers always know who is speaking in your pape’r–you or your source. This assignment is intended to help you review and use important strategies to integrate sources into your pape’r and maintain your own voice.
Pay close attention to how to use sources and quotes effectively, especially how to use signal phrases to integrate and introduce sources in sentences.
Read your Second draft of the Researched Argument carefully and check every paragraph where you used sources. If a source was not introduced or integrated properly and if it’s difficult to distinguish between your own idea and the idea of your source, you should revise the sentences so that your source is acknowledged and your voice comes out.
Read the 2 documents attached – a Word handout attached here:
Introducing and Integrating Sources, and
PowerPoint “Integrating Sources”.
Think about how you’re using your sources (to provide context, to define, to prove a point, to discuss implications, etc.).
index of templates from They Say I Say (1).doc
Use the examples provided in the handout and the PowerPoint, where the authors provide model signal phrases and sentences with sources, to revise your essa’y sentences with sources within your essa’y.
After you revise your sentences, highlight the revisions you have made, save as Third Draft, and post this draft here.
This marks our final week of class and, also, our final discussion.
For this week’s discussion, please respond to the following questions:
1. How do you plan to use your writing skills in future courses andor your career?
2. What did you learn, in particular, about rhetorical techniques in this class?
3. What did you learn, in particular, about evaluating and choosing sources for your research?
4. How did your writing skills, as a whole, improve during this course?
5. What were your two favorite reading assignments from this course and what did you learn from them in terms of developing stronger writing and critical thinking skills? (Some reading assignments we had were “Me Talk Pretty One Day” by Sedaris, David. B, “The Meaning of Timothy McVeigh” by Gore Vidal, “A&P” by John Updike, and “Politics and the English Language” by George Orwell just to name a few.)

For this short story, let us ask questions. Deep thinker questions. Really get into the heart or gut of the story questions. Structural questions. Reason questions. Character questions. Title questions. Yes, questions.
The right questions are keys to life. Properly sculpted, they can release, renew, and build.
EX: Why didn’t the inspector just have all the townspeople murdered? Why would he trust them?
Go to Vast DB. You know the drill.
1, Ask your penetrating question NO DUPLICATES
2. Reserve to answer a peer’s question. One student per question.
3. Answer a peer’s question. If the answer is obvious, was it perceptive? Or are you missing something? Ponder. You could mention your concern nicely as you craft your response. Do you need to ask another question of your peer? Do you need to respond to your peer? Then do so. Third person.
I expect you to contribute in a measured, thoughtful manner. This is not a fifteen-minute neglect of responsibility.
