Winding Up, Winding Down

When there are less than 5 days of school left, and everybody around us is already on vacation, it's sometimes difficult to retain focus.

Yet here we are.

We started an activity today on the Chinese dynasties.  There are 3 groups we are looking at: aristocrats, scholars, and foreigners.  Each group believes they should rule.  They plead their case before the chancellor of their province.  The chancellors will take their case before the emperor, and the emperor will decide.

Today, the students are still in their groups, trying to figure out why they should lead.  Tomorrow, they'll argue.

If you want the extra credit, you were supposed to have read this blog with an adult.  If you did that, discuss with them what makes a good leader.  Then, on a scrap of paper, tell me whether you see yourself as a leader or not, and tell me why.  Have the adult sign the paper.

Turn it in tomorrow in the extra credit tray.
