Moving from Learning Styles with its understanding never far behind

This week, we conclude our discussions of learning styles.  It is something that I believe will remain with students over the course of the year as we will be revisiting it constantly.  It will provide the frame of reference for how students will learn and be assessed.

This week, students should focus on completing their homework from the learning styles packet by Tuesday.  This will give them enough time to prepare for Thursday's assessment on Learning Styles.  Students will be given a study guide for the assessment on Thursday.  A copy of it can be found on this week's syllabus by clicking the hyperlink in the Social Studies homework box.  On Friday, students will start their study of Industrialization by playing Monopoly in class.  If students would like to bring in their own games of Monopoly from home, they can earn 20 points of extra credit.

On Wednesday, our instruction is going to focus on transcendental meditation.  My hope is that students will embrace this practice and make it part of their daily routines.  There are many benefits that can help our students embrace meditation on their path towards scholarship and improvement of both their mental and intellectual health states of health. 

I look forward to seeing all of our stakeholders at Curriculum Night, next Wednesday night.  If I can be of any further help or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
All best.
Mr. Kannan
