PACE: Working on Being Heroes

Thursday will begin in The Forum.  We'll be looking at some work the  teachers did on Wednesday afternoon regarding how to make the school a more welcoming, engaging place that gets more students to want to BE HERE.  I'm curious to see what you think of the results.

I then need to show you how to complete the project proposal form for the I Am Hero Project.  I'll do that by making a fake one right in front of your very eyes.  The actual form lives on its own page right here on the blog.

I only received a little feedback the other day (7 out of 17) about how class went, but I'm applying it.
So I'll stop as close to 30 minutes as possible today, though it may go a little over.  You will certainly have over half of the class to work.

And that work will include working by yourself or with your Student PACE reading groups on any of the following.


Student PACE: Whatever reading comes next for your group
Teacher PACE: Finish book by 9/30

Graphic Organizers
I Am Hero Graphic Organizer Week #1
Due Friday 9/20 -- Will Take Up to Wednesday 9/25 & Not Be Late

I Am Hero Graphic Organizer Week #2 (In the PACE 2013 OUT folder on Google Drive)
Due Monday 9/30

3+ Blog Posts Due Each Week (A Week is Monday to Friday)
1 Post Is Required (It Will Always Be a Creative Post), Others Are Anything You Want to Post Related to Class
Creative Req. Post: Write your own song or poem that tells JUST the story of your protagonist’s call to adventure and/or crossing of the threshold.  It may take any poetic form you like -- it does not need to be an epic poem -- and there isn’t a particular length requirement so long as it fits a poetic form and tells that part of the story. (Note: This is also part of your graphic organizer Week #2 -- it counts for both! That’s one way to look at using your blog. A place to do your work.)
Due Friday 9/27

I Am Hero Project
The rubric is on the blog as well as here.
You should start your planning ASAP.  There will be a proposal form that will be due next Monday 9/30 in class.
