Academic Check Point

September 22, 2011
tags: ,

I love my eleventh graders.  They are serious, well behaved, and motivated.  Today I decided to play a game with them even though there are more than 50 students in each section.  It was a big success!  They did all the work.  I just played referee and put problems on the board. We had everything from teams “Knowledge” and “Joy” to team “Academic Check Point” and “Brain 52.”

I give them their second quiz in the afternoon.  I think they’re ready.  I hope I’m right.  In twelfth grade I am teaching them to plot points on axes.  Terrifying.  Trying small small.  What doesn’t challenge you doesn’t change you.
