Itinerary

Choose two places to visit from the list above. Most of the sites will contain information about many things students need to know. Keep in mind your task is to gather information about time management.Keep a travel journal ( sheets of paper you will turn in as assignment) to evaluate each site you visit as you look for what you consider the best advice for you. What should your journal entries look like? You may wish to print this and use as your journal. When you finish with your three sites, you will be asked to make a "postcard" to send to a friend.See directions at the bottom of the page.

Post Card:

After you have recorded journal entries for two sites, choose the information you think is most useful and send a postcard to a friend detailing information you think he should know about time management (a pretend postcard). Don't just list a site for your friend to go to. Detail information your friend needs to know. Choose something from each site. You will turn it in with your two journal entries.
