Phew! I’ve just finished e-mailing you all individualized reports on how the groups are doing. I want to make sure you all are fully aware of what’s going on with each of your children, not just receive a generic report of things. (If you didn’t get one, let me know!)
- Of the 32 groups, 9 are done, 3 are pushing it close to the end, and 20 are just about done.
- Of the 19 individuals doing this, 7 are done as well. And 4 of them constructed buildings alone! Another is doing TWO all by herself!
Most impressive… all-in-all, this has been a well done project by the students. Results coming tomorrow.
I also want to clarify: 6th period students who wish to present (instead of writing a paper) need to let me know so I can let them present early in class. 7th period students need to let me know so I can have them do it during study hall or in the AM Monday. There will be conflicts because of a band event, and need to give them a chance to present if they’d like. Most students are writing the 2 paragraphs, but want to clarify a point of confusion for those that may want to present instead.
Here you can see some photos of construction. I snuck up on groups (as best a 6′ 8″ man can do!) to catch them in the middle of cooperating and working well together. The product of that is great buildings – I’ll have more “great” buildings in one year than I’ve had in the other 3 years combined. Well done, students!
