Fermilab LInC Online
Getting started is the hardest part of any project according to Newton's first law of motion (things in motion tend to stay in motion, things at rest tend to stay at rest). This has also been know as the law of inertia or how do you overcome critical mass. The development of an idea begins with committing an idea to paper or in this case to your computer on-line journal.
Your focus as a "survivor" in this interdisciplinary English II, World History, and Science II unit is to develop decision-making skills and knowledge. You are to use these skills and experiences to survive a cataclysmic event. Your success depends on showing/demonstrating how you use technology to contact experts as well as actual survivors of cataclysmic events as well as learn from past such events and from current exposure to emergency services operations. You can contact these experts at: http://njnie.dl.stevens-tech.edu/askanexpert.html. Further "expert" resource URLs are available in the Student URL Pages.
Making progress begins with your understanding of
the assignments due. This class is divided into three sections: Introduction
(two weeks); Body (six weeks); and, the Conclusion (two weeks). Daily
feedback is given to you on assignments in these sections as your teachers
guide and question/record your progress. Each Friday your on-line journal
is examined by your three instructors with feedback given for you to
examine on the following Monday. Your progress on assignments in each
class and in each section of the class are checked each week in order
to keep you up-to-date and to provide you with guidance on how to better
your work. Click here to see a summary of all
the assignments in this unit.
