Mini-Thresholds of Life!

In Unit 5 my class did a version of the Mini-Thresholds activity and groups came up with a new mini-threshold for life. Students first had to make up a threshold card with a quote from a reputable source. They had to defend the importance of their choice and include an MLA citation for the quote. Each team then briefly presented and defended their proposed mini-threshold. At the end, students voted with colored stickers for the mini-threshold they thought was the best. We promised we would post the winning proposal here for you all to see. I was surprised how intensely students wanted to be the selected team. The picture below is from our winning proposal.

  1. I noticed your site’s ranking in google’s search results
    is very low. You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need high PageRank backlinks to rank in top 10.
    I know – buying them is too expensive. It is better to own them.

    I know how to do that, just google it:
