Good morning! Welcome to Mr. Keller’s Photojournalism class.

This blog page will have all the information you need for this class. I will try to keep it as updated as possible so you always know what to expect. It will include notes, assignments, important dates, and announcements.

We will generally start every day by looking at the day’s post. Please Bookmark this site in your browser, and check here if you are absent to find out about information or assignments that you may have missed.

For the next couple of days we’re going to spend some time getting to know each other. I’m going to ask you to fill out some forms online and share some information about yourself. Please answer the questions honestly, and completely, and with as much detail as possible. The information won’t be shared with anyone else. It’s just a way for me to get to know some things about you that will help me to be a better teacher for you.  I will also be sharing some information about myself.

We’re also going to be discussing the course and what you can expect this semester. I will post new information, assignments, etc., on this blog regularly. If you are absent, check to see what you missed. All assignments will also be posted here, so you can always check to see what you should be working on and what’s coming up.

After we look at Classroom Expectations, I’d like you to click on the links below (in the order that they appear) and follow the instructions for each form.

1. The first one is the True Colors Personality Assessment. I’ll go over the directions with you before you begin.
True Colors

2. The second is the Myers-Briggs Personality Sorter. It’s 65, Yes-No questions about yourself. The main thing to remember when taking these assessments is that there are no right or wrong answers and no scores that are better or worse than others. They’re designed to find patterns in your answers that are similar to answers other people gave. Then it suggests some traits that might be true for you.

Myers-Briggs Typology Indicator

After you click on the Score It button at the bottom, it will show your results with a four-letter score and percentages below. It will look something like this.

Select that score and the numbers, and COPY it.

 

 

 

Click here to submit your score and comment on the results by PASTING your results in the correct field. 

Click here to read more information about the Myers-Briggs. We will go over this in more detail together in class, but you can look here to see an explanation of what your score means.

3. Next is the Student Profile form. It’s basic information about you. Some of this is on Synergy, but it helps me to have it all in one place. You can see instructions for this in Google Classroom.

To join the classes, use this code: i5ad92r

4. Last is the Personal Histories Questions. These are questions about you (likes, dislikes, etc.) that will tell me some things about you that I might not know through the course of the semester. This is a great place to tell me things that you think I should know about you. Again, it won’t be shared with anyone, so please be honest.
These questions are also in Google Classroom

When we get done with those, we’ll talk more specifically about the course and what to expect. If you have questions before we get to that point, feel free to let me know.
