The End of an Era

Journal 4-6

               After all of our discussions about psychics last week, I was very curious as to is currently the most famous psychic? Who is the most famous of all time? After much research, the answers have been found!
               Since everyone has their own opinions as to who is the "most famous", I have looked at a variety of sources and compared the results. America's most famous psychics of all time are Daniel Douglas Homes, Jeanne Dixon, and Tana Hoy (whom is still alive).The most famous "psychic" of today happens to be Paul the Octopus, who was made famous during the World Cup where he correctly predicted the outcome of all of Germany's 7 games as well as the outcome of the final match..

                This past week in Ethic's Class was a very interesting final week. We covered topics ranging from our Heroic Imagination Projects, to Mr. C's last lecture. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better final week of class!
                We spent two class periods this week talking about our Heroic Imagination Projects. I thought that it was a good idea to have these classes to discuss our projects, instead of just ending the year without discussing them. I really liked my group's project idea, and I think that some other groups had some great ideas as well. My suggestions for next year, would be to start at the beginning of the year, as opposed to the end of the year like we did. Also, just for the first couple of years, I would suggest downsizing the project a bit. Instead of changing the world on the first project students have ever created, maybe try to change the community or state until more knowledge and experience is gained to impact the world. Also, I would suggest devoting some more time in class for the projects, because it is extremely difficult to organize a meeting outside if school. All in all, I think that it went pretty decently for the first time through, but I know that everyone has learned the changes that need to be made for success next year!

                I just wanted to spend the last paragraph of my journal to talk about Ethic's class in general over the year. I really enjoyed being there and seeing Mr. C's bright and smiling face everyday!!! Everyday, this class really made me think and question the world around me. I learned so much that I didn't know before in this class, and I am so glad that you were my teacher Mr. C! Thank you for everything!

               Since this is my last journal entry, I will not have a question to be answered for next week....

 Leadership on Segways!!!

I couldn't resist.
