A Culture of "Work"
The language of work

A New Story ~ Working Towards A Culture of Thought
While reading the text please find a:
Sentence that was meaningful to you, that you felt captures a core idea of the text
Phrase that moved, engaged, or provoked you
Word that captured your attention or struck you as powerful
However in our classroom my role is to empower students to take charge of their own learning. They will learn to plan ahead, to be flexible and to be thoughtful about how they approach their learning.
Please stay tuned to a new home learning approach next week. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me.
