Humanities: Habits of Mind, Howe & Howe & Extreme by Design

We are just hammering you with big thinking right now and here comes some more . . .

We'll start with an opt-in MUGS activity to help you with "your/you're" before your quiz on Wednesday.  If you'd like to participate, work with Mr. Ryder on one side of the room.  You may choose to use this time to blog instead, if you feel like you don't need any help understanding the differences between your and you're.

From there, we will do a sorting activity based on the learning styles quizzes you took the other day. You will be up.  You will be moving.  It will be most fantastic.

That takes us to watching a couple of videos that tie in directly to all the work we've been doing with design thinking, habits of mind, and learning styles.

One is this episode of SplitScreen with Shannon Moss featuring the Howe Brothers from Howe & Howe.

The other is a preview of a design thinking documentary we'll be watching in chunks this week, Extreme by Design. 

You can see even more a preview here and more of the documentary here.

We'll be using a variety of strategies to help capture our thinking about these videos and how they tie into the work we've been doing with Habits of Mind.

Habits of Mind Assessment next Thursday and Friday!
Roots Quiz Thursday!

Get your missing work IN!!!!  Revisions!
