Teacher Inservice - Need Therapy
I'll need a lot more needlework, though, to recover from the trauma of trying to decide whether "The student will be able to identify and describe the major characters and events of Roman history" would fit better under "Information to Recall" or "Concepts to Explain" -- or perhaps it should be reworded entirely and filed under "Perspectives to Adopt." And just between you and me and the internet, I have substantial doubts about whether the Harkness Method of discussion would be ideal or even adequate to convey Latin grammar rules to middle school students. I can maybe try an open-ended discussion, but somehow... yeah. Is lecture really that bad a word?
Framed In Quilt I've been working on. The blocks went together incredibly quickly and I was able to piece the body together over the weekend. Now I'm adding a narrow white border and I'll plan to add a scrappy border and another final border before quilting it.
