Once we moved on to buddies I had a chance to sit in on a group of students who were discussing Iqbal. This group exemplified what book talks are all about; there was no teacher direction needed as each contributed questions, built on each other's ideas, listened respectfully and helped to develop a deeper understanding of the book.
In the afternoon students gathered in their extreme environment groups to work on their projects. It is going to be a push on Monday and Tuesday to have these completed for presentation on Wednesday.
1) LA - draft of the Right of the Child assignment. This must be shown and approved before students can begin using Comic Life on Monday
- work on your third and final response. This will be due on Wednesday so it is recommended you begin now. You will receive your 2nd response back on Monday and will be able to implement the feedback then.
- read and blog. I have noticed that the conversations have dwindled. Take time to read other posts and respond to engage the thinking.
2) Math - complete worksheet 6.3 and 6.4 for Monday
3) Science - make sure you have completed your part of the written portion on the project. Each group member is required to hand in a formal short essay piece with bibliography. Please read the criteria that has been shared in google drive.
- Track and field participants need to ensure the permission forms for the upcoming track meet are in for Monday.
- Please return the Grouse Mountain field trip form asap.
