Today in UOI, I was a scribe. Here are the notes that I took.

March 2nd

Work on yellow sheets

Sort into two categories - SMART, not SMART

Split into groups of 1, 2

Talk about SMART

See which things need writing about

A lot of things were not SMART

Determined if it was not SMART: not realistic, unfinished, not specific, 1, 2 words

Al together, decide what's SMART, what's not SMART

Who wants to make it SMART

Start to make a small decision for what you want to do

Split into 4 groups (9 people), go through, are they SMART or not

Not move many things to SMART

Not many things changed

On projector, highlighted what's SMART, and what's not SMART

Groups stood up, and told the class what was on their posters

The things on the board that were highlighted in green, were not SMART, not going to use

Discuss if we should keep any things

Gave reasons why we should keep the idea

Picked top 3 things we may want to do (if we had to pick right now)

Voted to see which things should sty, and which things should be eliminated

A lot of things were deleted, water pollution was very popular

We came up with new things that were not already on the board, that we wanted to be there

Have two days to find our top two for Thursday 
These are the guidelines our class came up with, because we had been having some problems with the weight of our bags.


Only bring books, and other heavy things on the day that you will need it
Don't put random things in your bag, like toys, and (for girls,) hair things
Try not to bring an over full water bottle, because it will put too much on the bag
Think hard about what you want in your bag , if it doesn't need to be there, don't keep it in there


If you can, empty your bag out each week, and work out what you want to keep in it.
Put your things in your cubby
Keep your things at home (eg. reading log, you only need it once a week)
For girls, if you have too many hair accessories at school, just have one thing to where at school when you need it
