A Lengthy Absence
As the date stamp in my previous blog post would indicate it has been quite some time since I last put fingers to keys for a blog entry. But as a part of leading by example I am participating in a challenge that I have set out to my students which is to complete different Language based activities everyday for the final 30 days of the school year. I also felt that this would be a different way to approach meeting the curricular expectations in Language and students would still be reading, writing, and communicating.
In the 30-day challenges, students are blogging, they are creating podcasts, live streamed conversations, keeping photo diaries, watching YouTube videos and talking about what they have watched, learning sign language and teaching others some of the basics, reading about countries unknown and sharing what they learn, researching topics of interest and producing a short summary of their findings and more. Hopefully, the ability to change it up every single day will keeping them going as we move into that very long part of the year where the schools become too hot to learn within, schedules become crazy and the days until summer are not short enough for all of us.
Updates to come….
