Rocco's Corner

Happy New Year everyone! After my first semester here, I spent the break reflecting on how fortunate I am to be @ OW and to have my family here in College Station.

We have a magnificent staff here and are all well prepared for anything that comes our way, even blocked primary routes in fire drill evacuations. Our last drill in December was flawless.

Great thing to Share

I saw a fantastic seating arrangement that I have never seen before, this week in Ms. Gallagher's class. It is variation on the Horseshoe theme that manipulates the space beautifully, giving all a clear view of the front and the chance to be seated in small or partner groups at the same time. This set up also divides students effectively and makes it very difficult to hide off-task or poor behaviors. In it I saw students authentically engaged in the Socratic Method of whole group inquiry and discussion. Great planning and execution!
