We have a very short week this week with a PD day on Thursday and a holiday on Friday. This week students will continue with their Otzi project. Students are working alone, in pairs, or in groups of three to develop a presentation that outlines their theory on how Otzi the Iceman died. They will have this week to finish their presentation and begin practicing. Presentations are taking place in the first week of March.
In English, we will continue working with our short story scenes. The focus is on editing this week, and the students will work through a variety of activities in order to make sure their work is the best it can be. Depending on progress this week, the scene is due week beginning Monday Feb. 29.
ISM is lucky to have Dr. Bonnie Singer at the school this entire week. She is working mainly with Middle School teachers (English, Social Studies, LS, and ESL). She and her partners have developed systems for idea organization (Brain Frames) that we use in class. To that end, there will be a substitute in for me during Block 5 on Monday and Block 3 on Tuesday.
Thanks and have a great week!
