Joanna started the class of with the question of the day so we can go deeper into what our purpose is. The purpose for us to do what we do. Then we listed what we see happening in the real world. Ex: Internship, Current Events, Personal Experience.

This activity was also so we can get to know each other and get comfortable talking about ourselves and what we see. We then listed a few skills people need to have to be able yo survive this world and the things listed ended up being our class norms.

At the end of class Joanne went over her syllabus.
