Classes officially began yesterday!
I’m going to try a new format of daily post. I hope it will help my posts be short and thus more likely to happen.
One thing that went well: The flow of our work with goals. We read four short pieces from a great book called Journeys. Each piece talked about the author’s goals, and they were all quite different. From there, we thought about our own goals and made lists. We’ll continue to work with those lists.
One thing to improve: Teacher talk. I talked too much. “They can understand me” is not a good excuse!
One surprise: How much more settled in it already feels to me. Yesterday seemed a little awkward, and I wondered if I came across badly. Today I felt that we all communicated with each other better and have started to become a class.
