Addiction Comes in all Forms

Gabe -the Ag Comm script needs to be finished by the end of the week.  Taylor has been working on it some.

Zach – Memorize your Ag Issues part.  Continue to research the school lunch program – specifically things that relate to your viewpoint.

Lindsey – you have Parli Pro to memorize and tests to work through.

Ashley and Connor – keep working on blog posts.  – Connor – don’t be a nuisance to those around you!

Make sure you are keeping up with the expectations for this class.  If in doubt, see them here.


For today, I’ve seen lots of stories lately about Cell Phone Addiction.  I witness it every block in my classroom.  Check out these four signs that you may have a problem:

  1. Do you panic when you’ve misplaced your phone?
  2. Are you on your phone during social situations or in the presence of family?
  3. Do you carry your smartphone everywhere, even to the bathroom?
  4. Do you go to sleep and wake up looking at your phone?

Watch the following video: (with earphones please)

On your blog – react to what you saw and heard. Do you exhibit signs of a cell phone addiction? What’s your plan for changing that habit?  If you’re not one of those addicted to their phones, tell me about your experiences with friends or family who are.  It always amazes me when my husband and I are out for dinner and the groups around us are all on their phones.  Seems they’d rather be with who ever they are texting than the people they are with.  It makes me wonder why they’re not with the person or people on the phone instead of the folks they’re with?  Does your family or your group of friends have any rules regarding cell phone use at meal time?  Tell me all about it.

Your post is due Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 8:15 a.m.
