Student as Scribe

In this post an assigned student will provide a summary of the days lesson. Was there an assignment or reminders? This should include a summary, how the lesson relates to the "essential question" or "big idea", helpful maps, links, videos, etc. that would be useful to understand or review the day's lesson. This is worth up to 15 points and will be graded on content, creativity, effort and timeliness. Your initial post is due one day after your assigned class, but feel free to add to it as your understanding of the topic expands. At the top of your post you must put the date you are scribing about and your scribe number!
3 reasons for this assignment: 
1. Allows one student to dig deeper into a given topic and do some research, critical thinking and even teaching. 
2. Help anyone who missed that day for whatever reason. 
3. If we do this right this should be a great tool to use when preparing for tests.
