YEs. He is a Senior in high school.
Objective: Complete the FOURTH of four writing assignments by watching the selected video and completing the electronic worksheet. The purpose of the video and worksheet is to provide motivation regarding the topic of computer science. In addition, you will use the CONTENT from your worksheets on YOUR website you will begin creating for week 5.
Step 1: Remember, All FOUR worksheets will need to be completed before class on FRIDAY. I suggest you begin by watching the 8:33 minute Ted Talk without looking at the worksheet.
Step 2: After you've watched the final video this week, watch it again while answering the worksheet questions found in your Google Classroom.
Remember to TURN IN your finished work.
