First, last week I explained that I was going to try something different for conferences this year. Unfortunately, it looks like we won’t be able to make that happen in time for conferences. Students don’t have access to Google Hangouts so I haven’t figured out a way to make the process work efficiently. We will keep working on it with the hopes of having student-led video conferences in the spring. In the meantime, please take advantage of the My Conference Time website to sign up for a conference! It will be short, but I’d love to meet you all and share what we’re up to.
This week students will pull their Individual Research Reports together into one group multimedia presentation. The groups have been working hard, adjusting their questions and rethinking their research along the way. I’m excited to see what they come up with and, hopefully, will have some videos of presentations to post here next week.
Please ask your students to share their research and their findings with you this week. They’re all excited to talk about what they’re doing and I’m discovering that the more they talk, the better their questions become.
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Hattie Maguire
