  1. Hi Ms.D, in the video it was pretty much saying that peer presure is a good thing to use, but in school we learn that peer presure isn’t a good thing.

  2. Hey Ms. D,
    This video has helped me a ton because i procrastonate with everything that im assigned to do. It has given me so much advice, like how to plan and to do a little bit of each work each night until the day it’s due. \

  3. Hey Ms.DiGangi!

    After watching Gabby Lewis’s PSA on horse slaughtering today,I would really like to see it posted on the blog,so that others who view the blog can see it too! It was just so beautifully done,that it really stuck with me.

    Great job Gabby!

  4. Ms D., I was confused about our story board that’s due tomorrow. In my agenda, i put down to do only the goals and 3 facts. I was wondering if that is all we have to do for homework or if we have to do the entire “words” section.

  5. Hey Ms. d, I just saw a commercial about fruit loops and it looked like the tucans were in an old aztec village because there were temples all over the place that looked like templo mayor.

  6. Hey Ms. d, my friend in blue hall needed help with flash cards. I told to go on this site and click under flashcard maker. He thanked me for telling him about this site and he said he will use this site again.

  7. Mrs.D, I wanted to post a pop culture connection about my service learning topic which is Dog Fighting. I recentley found out that a few years ago Nike got into a lot of trouble for shooting a commercial that has dog fighting in it. The link to the video is as follows http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSHQv9FhvVA around the 57 or 58 second mark you can see two dogs going at it. This upset a lot of people who fight for dog fighting to be stopped and it suprised me that Nike would do that.

  8. Hi Dan, Thank you for posting Gorillas in the Mist. One of the students picked Dian Fossey for their hero in the hallway…we’ll have to find out who…

  9. Hi Brandon. Yes. we are still learning about PSAs. Don’t worry…you’ll get it. Tomorrow, we will watch several students samples from last year. The Service Fair isn’t until the last week of school and yes, students who successfully meet the requirements will present to the current 7th graders.

  10. I found it very interesting that 90% of college students procrastinate. This made me want to quit procrastinating and get things done before the night before its due.

  11. Hi, Im not understanding anything about the PSA. Is everyone going to present to the 7th graders like last year? I hope we learn more about it in class.

  12. hey ms. d, I have a pop culture connection about gorilla poaching. A few years ago I saw a movie called gorillas in the mist. This movie I highly recommend watching. it is a sad movie but it was still a good movie. here is the link to watch the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy_70eoZCQY

  13. I believe that i am guilty of procrastination and i feel that this video has helped me become a little more motivated to complete my work quicker.

  14. Ms. D, I am not sure if my file uploaded to the wiki, but I tried and if it did download it doesn’t have a name because I have the name in my slideshow. The name of my document is How to Create a Black Death.
