Hey Guys.

Over the next 3 days, as we are out of in person instruction, we will continue the conversation about technology and the future for technology. One area that is growing significantly is the technology of 3D printing. This video speaks specifically to 3d printing in the medical world and in space. Watch this video and submit a response in the classwork section of google classroom. Once you write your original response, you are then responsible for responding to two separate classmates posts. 

Your response will need to be at least 3-5 sentences. ” I agree” or ” me too” are not acceptable responses and you won’t get credit for those.  

Your response can be focused on what you think are the pros and cons of this tech. You could also expound on what else you see this tech being able to do. 

Make your post and respond to two other posts.

Hey Guys,

Over the next few days we while we are not in person we will continue our conversations about Emotions and specifically ANGER. Watch this Video attached to this post. After watching please write a 3-5 paragraph response to what you saw. This is a classic example to how anger escalates. Obviously this is a comedy but, all good comedy has elements of truth in it. Talk about what he could’ve done to stay “COOL” instead of getting extremely hot. Remember the Emotions Thermometer. 

Talk about what triggered his anger, what fueled his anger, talk about what he could’ve done to defuse his anger as well. you could also mention what you would do in that situation. 

After you write your original response, you are then required to respond to two other students post too. Your response to their post must be 3-5 sentences as well. If you write ” I agree” or “Me too” or any other short response you will not get credit. 

This assignment/ post can be found in the classwork section of google classroom.
