I'm wrapping up our health action research project this week. Students are writing their papers. I will take and post a picture of my own exercise "action plan", modeled after the action plan assignment. For once, mainly because the paper counts as 2 essay/test grades, I am reviewing their rough drafts for major problems and giving quiz grades.
This is school spirit week. Tomorrow is our field trip to see a science show at a local theatre - fun! Friday we enjoy the school spirit assembly. We start spring break after Friday. Hence, work motivation is low.
Looking ahead, I'm trying to put together a few mini-units, one for Earth Day and one regarding manners/civility. Then literature circles, and that takes us to June! Instead of a final exam this year, we're working on a cumulative portfolio final assessment. So June will focus on the portfolio.
And here's where my mind and heart and soul really are located right now - in New York City, where we plan to go on Saturday for 5 days. We'll stay in my mom's tiny apartment, see a few friends and family, eat some good food, shop.
