2nd Semester Curriculum
 
For Second Semester, you must demonstrate your mastery of the following skill sets. I
have phrased each skill as an “I can” statement so that you know what you need to be
able to do.
Once each skill is introduced, you will have as much time as you need todemonstrate mastery of that skill, as long as you meet the final deadline of each grading period.
You will show your mastery of the skill by uploading an example of what you’ve done to Blue
Harvest Feedback under the appropriate category.
