What does it mean to be a CITIZEN of this classroom, of our school, of your home, of the Pulaski Community, of Wisconsin, of the USA, and of the world?
Two focuses for the day pertained to citizenship in their groups:
1) Being AWARE – of current events and impending consequences and of our history (personal/overall)
2) Being ACTIVE – involve yourself by communicating to others your thoughts and ideas AND by creating solutions to problems that you care about.
The beautiful thing about our "Afternoon Block" is that we have 1 hour and 40 minutes to use how we would like. This activity will be explained in the following videos. We took one hour and 5 minutes to complete it, and then students completed their "Why is this going to be the best school year ever!" five sentence paragraph into our "Daily Endeavor" newspaper template - a Google Doc of course.
