I’m sure once you’ve gotten to this post you’ll have heard so many speeches that your head is starting to hurt, so I’ll try to keep it short. While I am extremely excited to get back in the swing of things, we can’t move forward without getting some of the typical “First Day” stuff out-of-the-way. Most importantly, this site…mrpappasteach.wordpress.com, which you can rely on daily, for up to date goals and assignment information.
I know that most students don’t really get excited about daily goals, especially in the classroom. I will be focusing my efforts in the first 3 minutes of class on breaking these goals down into ones that are understood by the students– so that they REALLY process the meaning and ideas behind them… TEAMWORK and COLLABORATION!
I can’t wait to get back into the creative swing of things and I hope you are excited as well (well, maybe not for all your classes, but at least for this one!)
