What's Happening in English 3!
1st Six Weeks of the 2015-16 School Year
The images below demonstrate a little of what we did this six week period. First, students walked around the 2nd floor, scanning QR codes that would take them to various American Literature websites and videos where they were able to answer questions based on this search. Second, I asked students to think of one single word that defined themselves, and they were to write that word on the palm of their hands. I then photographed their hand (since their face was in the distance, it was out of focus). Lastly, we keep a "shout out" wall in the room where learners can give a "shout out" to a work partner, a friend, a teacher, or a parent.
All that we do, even if it seems a little unorthodox at times, directs students to specific learning goals.
