JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "We Run This" by Missy Elliot; "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson]
Your teachers see your thinking for 50 minutes a day, five days a week (if you show up every day, and there aren't any breaks in the schedule, and you share what you know). You see your thinking every waking moment of your life. So... who is the best judge of your thinking?
you know about school is being reversed in this course. The student is
at the top of the organizational chart; the teacher, the community, and
the tools of the Information Age all work for you now. As the CEO of
your personal learning organization, you recognize that power brings
responsibility-- most importantly, the responsibility to evaluate your
performance and set a course that leads to success. So, today's journal
topic is this: how are you doing on your masterpiece so far and where
do you see it heading? Are you satisfied with the work you've done so
far? Do you see opportunities we haven't discussed?
