I felt honored yesterday when Alice Mercer, my exceptional colleague who also teaches in the Sacramento School District (she’s at an elementary school), came by to observe one of my classes. I felt doubly honored that she wrote a post about it. You can read it at her blog. It’s titled Dear Theory of Knowledge Students.
She happened to come by to see my International Baccalaureate Theory of Knowledge class (I have a wide-ranging class schedule including IB, mainstream ninth-grade English, and Intermediate English).
Alice framed her post as a letter to my students and included several thoughtful questions (she also included photos). Tomorrow, my students will be responding to them. I’ll be very interested in seeing the comments they leave at her blog.
It was a lot of fun seeing older students, and they don’t poke me like the first graders…
