The world as my classroom

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Today is kind of the last day before vacation - tomorrow we won't get many students, today is the day for class parties, the students vs. faculty basketball game, things like that.

So I set up the computer and projector again today - one class finished the Italy photos (lots of sculpture and architecture), another class "went" with me to Costa Rica and looked at pics of volcanoes (active), crocodiles, monkeys, sloths - that was the class with a few girls and mostly 7th grade boys, I thought they'd like the animals better. (They got all excited.)

I want my students to know that there's a whole exciting world out there, beyond our little island and even beyond the US, with histories and cultures and things we read about but don't see in our daily lives.

So I hope they've been inspired. If nothing else, it makes for an interesting but relaxing day.

    With you as their teacher they cant help but be inspired. I have told you many times how much I wish you had been my teacher. I hope you have a very happy holiday. How long have you got off?

    What a wonderful way to teach your students! I am so glad that you are the type of teacher who wants to expand the horizons of their students. May you have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday break.

    You look like you are bring to your classes knowledge of the world. Pictures will do it every time.

    I remember a lot of things that I learned in school, as I travel in my golden years.

    thanks for being there for our kids.
