Being the 90!

Your Quest: Bringing the 90 out of you, being the 90!

Each of you has a 90 in you. I have seen 90 work from each of you since school has started, you just haven't developed the skills you have and need to maintain the 90. One reason may be one setback that throws off the average and suddenly or slowly the grades tell you a 90 isn't possible. You have always dreamed of 90 in English. Problem is you have never let it out, learned how to maintain the work ethic to always do 90 work, or chosen to be the 90. You have just talked about it or dreamed about it. Well, to help you see that 90, to wake up and be that 90, I've decided to show you. For the last marking period in January, you all have 90 for English. Now, you will have to do the work to defend that 90, should anyone question the grade. Take chances, experiment, try something you have considered, you cannot fail and know you will get a 90 for it. Will the work you have on your webpage at the end of January be 90 work? Now I don't mean 90 as you might compare it to someone else, but as it reflects the 90 student in you. As I said, I have seen glimmers of 90 work in all of you, now I want you to learn how to do the work to see what it takes to bring that 90 out of you. I know you can talk about the 90, NOW, I want to see you walk that 90. Be the 90, scholars.

Research: Successful Intelligence Sternberg and a Powerpoint

Here's the Quotation for Monday, December 15, 2003
If I wanted to become a tramp, I would seek information and advice from the most successful tramp I could find. If I wanted to become a failure, I would seek advice from people who have never succeeded. If I wanted to succeed in all things, I would look around me for those who are succeeding, and do as they have done.
Joseph Marshall Wade

Here's the Quotation for Saturday, January 3, 2004
You can achieve anything you want in life if you have the courage to dream it, the intelligence to make a realistic plan, and the will to see that plan through to the end.

You will create a new file quest.html. In it you will discuss your quest to be the 90, to bring that 90 out of you, show us. How will this be achieved? Read the following selections and use them in discovering how you will bring that 90 out, achieve your goal of the 90, and learn how to do it again. You want to learn to make earning the 90 the rule in your academic life, not the exception. How are these selections relevant to you and your quest? What have they taught you about choices you make? Consider, too, how the work you have done since school started shows you that there is a 90 in you.

The Readings:

Outline

    I. Begin with introduction about your quest for the 90.
    II. Explore the five readings and quote them in your essay in any order. Show how they are relevant to your quest. Be sure to include links to the readings and to provide quotes from the readings to support your own quest. Do not treat the readings separately, but instead show how they connect to you and show you yourself.
    III. Conclude with what have you come to understand about yourself as you undertake your own quest? What have you already done that demonstrates you do have that 90 lurking inside you?

It is easy to give up, you know that. NOW try something new, don't give up, you have nothing to lose, you have the 90. NOW go out and learn about yourself and be the 90. You can do it because you have already shown you can, if for a brief moment, make it eternal. You will have to defend this 90, you know.
