Starting off on Industrialization

Click here for a copy of the Phase Three Assessment on Learning Styles.

It was a joy to be able to see so many of you at Curriculum Night. If you are able to have Don Draper articulate your vision of education, it cannot be that bad of a thing... I think!  In any event, I hope that you all found the evening enlightening and something that represents, in a small way, what your children experience.

This week will be a distinctive one in Social Studies.  On Monday and Tuesday, we will be working towards developing an understanding of meditation practices and techniques.  Wednesday, we will be starting our work on Industrialization with games of Monopoly.  Students will play a game whose premise is the accumulation of wealth and the denial of this opportunity to others:  There's a game for Industrialization!   Our work in Learning Styles will help us establish the basis for our work in the Industrialization. It is in this realm where metacognition will fuse with content knowledge, enabling our students to be stronger and move into the realm of emergent scholarship.

Quick red tape announcement:  For periods 2, 3, and 5, your Phase Three of the Learning Styles Assessment  will be due on Thursday, 9.19.  Periods 7, 8, and 9 will be announced during Monday's classes.

If I can be of any further help or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
All best and happy hunting.
Mr. Kannan
