Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 – HIGH SCHOOL (grades 9-12)

http://apps.gadoe.org/schoolclimate/highschool.nsf/Survey.xsp

Monday and Tuesday

Making your PSA : Now that your group has researched and typed your annotated bibliography, you can decide whether to contact or not contact your tribe. Consider your EPL reflections below.

Honors and AP

Siddhartha sacrificed all that a human could desire at different stages of his life to attain enlightenment. Buddhism defines Nirvana as void of attachments. What is it that you hold on to so dearly? Can you live without it? In order to empathize with our protagonist, we will conduct a Self-Deprivation Experiment. We will record one week of living without a luxury* that we feel we cannot live without. Think about it. Is this luxury a novelty that your PBL tribe lives without? How do they do it? How will  you do it?

*Please abide by the rules, regulations, and norms of your school and household. Your health is of utmost importance. Your  self-deprivation experience must be teacher-approved.

Wednesday: EPL Reflections

Ethos

  • What source did you use that your audience will trust?
  • How can your audience relate to this culture?
  • Is the story from a reliable source?
  • How have you presented an issue that your audience would value?
  • How have you used language that is appropriate for your audience?

Logos

  • What facts, quotes, or statistics have you included to support your views?
  • Did you cite your sources?
  • What reasons did you give to support your views?
  • Did you include and explain any jargon?

Pathos

  • Which emotions did you express in your views?
  • Which emotions of your tribe did you present?
  • How might the vivid, concrete language and emotional examples attract your audience?

You should be able to answer these reflection questions about your PSA.
