It’s time to cast your vote for the students in your grade that stand out in specific ways. Be fair, be honest, and don’t just vote for your friends. Remember, not everyone in 8th grade will win an award, and some students might even win more than one. Thanks for the time, and enjoy the 3-part survey!

NOTE: When answering, please use the student’s FULL name to differentiate between students with similar names. Examples: Wesley Ma, Wesley Chung, Grace Lawson, Grace Chong
NOTE 2: Please capitalize the first letter of each name. Example: Joe Dirt vs. joe dirt

Bonjour my bodacious and beloved Bible believing beings!

You’ve done it!
You’ve read Matthew.
You’ve reflected on his gospel.
You’re written at least 28 posts.
Well done. Well done indeed.

There’s another assignment in store for you before we depart for the summer. I want you to do a reflection post about your reflections. In other words, please blog about your blogging. Think about your experiences over this past semester, and then draw some conclusions. If you need a start, here are some questions you might want to ask yourself:

  • What did you like or dislike while making and maintaining a blog?
  • What did you learn while reading, reflecting, and writing?
  • Did you give this your full effort? Why or why not?
  • How were your comments? How were your peers’ comments?
  • What were some of your favorite experiences while journaling?
  • How did you struggle? What were some challenges you faced?

Before you start typing, please answer my survey so I can gain and use your feedback. Thanks!

One final thing. If you have some advice (about the blogs) for me or the teacher taking over 8th grade, please leave your advice in the comments below. If you think it’s too private, you can send me an email or fb message or speak with me in person. Thanks again! I love each of you!

After 10 years of searching for the mastermind behind the al Qaeda September 11, 2001 attacks, the US military has found, shot, killed, and disposed of Osama Bin Laden.

Many people know about Osama, al Qaeda, and the September 11th attacks. However, many of you might be fuzzy on some of the details. Thanks to one of my favorite friends, Wikipedia, as well as a number of other news sources, I want you to read, recall, and understand the many events from the past decade (and beyond). Please click on the following links and watch the videos or read the articles*:

After you’ve read, skimmed, and/or perused these links and videos, please write a reflection post based on this historic incident and the recent closure that many Americans have found. I’m not looking for any sort of “right” answer, but rather your thoughts on this incident, whether good, bad, or a mix of the two. You might also want to answer a question such as: How might Jesus want me to respond to this? If you’re struggling how to respond as a Christian, you might want to check out this article: The Christian Response to Bin Laden’s Death.

*By the way, you are also welcome to view any other news, articles, or links related to Osama Bin Laden’s death! I’ve only provided an overview so that our class will have a common foundation.

DUE: Thursday, May 05 (PE) and Friday, May 06 (SC and EB)

More likely, we’re all thoroughly annoyed by Rebecca Black!  In the wave of teeny bopper chaos, Community Christian Church created a parody video called “Sunday” by Sadie B. Watch it below and let me know what you think about it in the comments. Also, please answer my poll (survey). Thanks!

Remember, speak your mind in the comments!

In Matthew 14, Jesus walks on water, and the disciples think He’s a ghost. Jesus tries to assure them He is actually the fleshy Jesus. Testing Him, Peter has this fantastic idea and suggests that he walk on water too.

I’m not sure that’s what I would have suggested. Rather, I would’ve said something like, “Scoop up some water, pour it over your head, and let me set if it goes right through you!” But Peter being Peter just spurts out the first thing that pops into his mind.

Now, imagine you’re Peter. Jesus asks you to, “Come.” Now answer the poll below.
