45 hours.

This afternoon the class used the “WorkTime Calculator” form  to estimate how long it might take to write the draft of their research report.  The calculator includes every task needed to complete the draft report.  Each student came up with his or her own estimate, which can be seen on the form that is in each student’s research report duotang.

We used those estimates to calculated the class average.  The class estimated that it would take, on average, about 45 hours of work to complete the draft of their report!

The class was assured that after Spring Break they would be helped to develop a detailed “WorkPlan”, using their agenda books, that to achieve the writing of their draft report.  In the mean time, they should enjoy Spring Break – as there is no official homework to do over the break!!

Happy Spring everyone!!!
