“Sharing is caring”

November 4, 2011 16 comments

I read this quote yesterday on Twitter. It is about the flooding in Thailand and Bangkok. Read it very carefully, a few times, and think deeply about what it means or what it could mean. Make a comment to explain your thinking.

“It seems we are protecting the homes of people who could afford to have them fixed, and sacrificing the homes of people who will lose everything.”

New Goals for Gradual Release of Responsibility

September 20, 2010 47 comments

With your parents, spend some time looking at the Gradual Release of Responsibility diagram outside the classroom:

  • Explain how the diagram works
  • Share your cards with them by taking them off one-by-one and finding somewhere to talk about each one
  • Find out if they think your cards are in the right place on the GRR
  • Discuss how you can work together with your parents to progress
  • Decide on one or two goals for the next couple of weeks
  • Make a comment to tell us your goals and a bit of information about the conversations you had

Remember, make your goals:

Sustainable (you will carry on doing it)

Manageable (it is not too much to take on)

Achievable (you can achieve success with it)

Realistic (it is appropriate for you)

Timely (now is the perfect time to work on this goal)
