#1. I will be driving this next group of Law & Order SLC students to DVI today. I will see you again tomorrow. Due to the fact I am going to be in a Correctional Facility almost all day I will not have my cell phone on me or laptop.

#2. I posted a list of the people below of people I know have turned in their paperwork and are ready to go.

DVI Trip -May 17th

REMINDER: It is important to know there is a dress code for visiting the Correctional Facility tomorrow. I have posted it below directly from the California Department of Corrections Visitor’s Guide. If you are in violation of this dress code you will have to remain behind on campus. This dress code is taken very seriously by our hosts. Click/Tap the image below to enlarge it.

Task #1 (Read the Information Below)

Today you will yet again be doing the same online activity as Friday and Monday. This is due to the fact that again people are NOT reading the directions. LOOK over the results from the last two days below RIGHT NOW.

Friday (5-13-2016)-> Period 2- Mock Trial – You Be the Judge Activity v2 (5-13-2016)

Monday (5-16-2016)-> Period 2 – Mock Trial – You Be the Judge Activity Results (5-16-2016)

My Own Observations:

  1. Students: Catalina, Aaliyah, Sayanara, Stefany, and Angel are following directions and ensuring that their responses are academically written.
  2. Only a small handful of people are stepping up to the bar to write correctly.
  3. Today if I do not see academic writing yet again we will be spending the entire period tomorrow working on academic writing. This is due to the fact that as far as what I am seeing online people are becoming lax in their writing probably due to the fact that it is the end of the year.
  4. It does not appear that students are using all their resources. Use the previous results to see what a full academic answer looks like. These answers will be the long ones to each question.

Task #2  (Today’s Task)

Now, once again for the third time you will be going to and entering room “A89559b4” and answer the questions ACADEMICALLY.
