Homework: What animal would you be?

Now, don’t be confused here… I am not asking you what your favourite animal is! That would be very uninteresting indeed. I am asking you to think about yourself, your personality and your  behaviour and find an animal that is similar to you! IT IS NOT EASY. Believe me.

  • Why do you think people reacted the way they did?
  • Do you think they really have to tell people to0 “say something nice”? Why?
  • What effect would a strategy like this have at NIST?

Here is a message from Ms. Teresa and Ms. Jennilea… both of whom could be your teachers next year!

“Thank you for joining us at the Y9 service fair for Children of the Forest last Friday. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and that your students learned a bit more about the organization as well as had a bit of late Friday afternoon fun. Below is a video recapping the event if you’d like to share it with your students.”

Homework – making progress

March 29, 2012 36 comments

Tonight is really your only chance to prepare for tomorrow’s checkpoint. This has been a crazy week!

Tomorrow, I will be expecting you to do the following things:

  • Explain which key concepts you think will help you become an expert on your spark and why
  • Share the driving questions you have created so far and where you think you can get answers to those questions
  • Share some of the most interesting information you have found using those questions
  • Involve the adults that visit us tomorrow in conversations about your spark, the work you have been doing and progress you think you have been making
  • Find ways to involve them in your learning by asking questions and seeking advice

Make a comment to tell us what you plan to do tonight to make sure you’re ready for tomorrow.
