Today was an early release day, which meant we didn’t have a lot of time to dig into that much content. That’s okay because we still had plenty to do.
Period 1 we started with Of Mice & Men, finishing the first section. (Period 3 we skipped this step and will be catching up on Friday.) On Friday we will follow George & Lennie to the ranch for the first time and see the men with whom they will be working. (Look in your gmail for a document called Steinbeck if you want to catch up.)
From there folks had some time to catch up on blogging and making sure all of their online Roots & MUGS quizzes are in the books for 3rd quarter. With grades finalizing on Thursday night, that’s kind of ridiculously important.
And then attention turned to the Tolerance Project Proposal forms. I met with a number of folks about their proposals and will meet with the rest on Friday.
If you need help with the Bloom’s Taxonomy part, look at this Bloom’s Taxonomy model and click on the parts of the wheel that explain to you the sorts of thinking and task you need to do at each level.
Some great stuff that I heard today . . .
- How can we become more patient?
- How can we make people more aware of their offensive language even when they don’t mean to be offensive?
- How can teenagers better understand adults?
- How can students better tolerate homework?
- Video game
- Informational Poster Campaigns
- Amazing Keynote
- Short story
