Well, we are done! All of the students have presented their topics and the papers are to be handed in today. Students, pat yourselves on the back, and parents, congratulate your students for their work. Writing a research paper is a challenging task with many ups and downs, but these students have done well and should feel good about engaging in the process of such a task.
Today we heard from Grace about equine therapy, especially in regards to working with veterans with PTSD. I was moved by the video that she showed and have a new appreciation for the challenges that our returning soldiers experience and also for the potential of this kind of therapy.
Maggie spoke well on various ways to prove the existence of God. She shared a video from Prager University and explained the theories related to this discussion. Good job tackling a complex topic.
For those who did not bring paper copies of their papers to class today, please remember to share them on Google Docs or to attach a Word copy sometime today. Also, if you did not hand in your most recent rough draft with my comments, please send that. If you can't scan it, take a picture of the pages and attach them in an e-mail.
My hopes is to have the papers read and graded before Christmas, but it that doesn't happen, you should see grades from me by January 7. (I'll have another e-mail that explains how I grade the work done in this class.)
Have a great Christmas!
