PACE: PACE 2013 2.0 Begins

Today we start by getting into our Ohana Teams; Ohana Teams are the support teams I've been asked to craft based on my understanding of strengths and weaknesses, personalities and talents.

Then we'll look at how to create our new Weekly Work Plans using the Google Spreadsheet.

From there, you'll have time to write the first paragraph of your Product, Process, Outcome written reflection for the I Am Hero Project.  You'll have 15 minutes in each class to work on this, one paragraph each.  You are welcome to work on it at home.  I think that you'll be able to create some quality first draft writing here in class.

What's next?  We'll get out of our Ohana Teams and start the process of unpacking our 10th grade reading, writing and researching standards as we gear up for our "Music Is Poetry Is Music" unit starting Friday/Tuesday.

What does unpacking look like?  We'll take the standards like this:

And turn them into language you can understand.  

We'll also do some "How Might We?" work with these to generate ideas for formative and summative assessments.  Formawha?  Exactly.  We need to learn this stuff so you can craft your own this winter and spring.
