Explaining the Walk/ Finishing Up

Mr. Helmuth went over the stations of the 9/11 Gallery Walk today.  Surreal teaching moment: I had approximately 10 students who were born before the attacks.

Another surreal moment: Mr. Helmuth was in 3rd grade.  (No offense Mr. Helmuth... I'm sure you couldn't help it...)

He did a great job of breaking down the pictures.  Students often struggle with symbolism and intentional ambiguity.  Mr. Helmuth broke it all down for us though.

After we discussed each of the stations, we finished our culture notes.  (Maybe you should tell the person you're reading this with about one or two of the stations...)

The ingredients of culture are going to tie into everything we do for the rest of the year, so it's important that our students both know them, and explain their significance to culture.

It's a short blog today.  You're welcome.  If you want extra credit, you are supposed to have read and discussed the blog with an adult.  If you did that, write as many of the ingredients of culture as you can remember on a piece of paper.  Then, have the adult you read and discussed the blog with sign the paper.

Make sure your name, date and hour are on it, then place it in the "extra credit tray" tomorrow.

See you then.
