I enjoyed researching “Making Formal Education Relevant” for our presentation. I found it interesting that some of what I read for that assignment talked about increasing focus on persistance and grit. At our last teacher’s meeting, the principal talked about the same thing, referring to a book or program called Mind Set. I will plan my classes more toward individual and hierarchical learning and encourage students to explore what they are interested in. I will give students more lee way in choosing toics to research and report n and give them the opportnity to present their findings and inforation in different ways other than a paper or worksheet.I will have students create a portfolio this year.
I hope to try a RAFTS writing assignment and incorporate more writing into my assignments.
