__Reflection__, had we had more time and access to the computer room (Dear students, that's a note for my colleagues who are looking for ideas): Write a program in*What we would have done**Scratch*. It can be a cartoon, a game, animated art...etc. Post it on the MIT website, with a short description. Present it to the class (a projector and a computer will be provided).*Scratch*is a free software that can be downloaded at__http://scratch.mit.edu/__. Learning programming through*Scratch*is fun so student will be using instructions, loops and variables in no time!: Using as a basis the text about*What the English teacher could have done with the DNL sudents, had we had more time*__recognizing fallacies__, look for fallacies in newspapers, articles and conversations around you.
