We are an amazing classroom community. Each block has bonded within itself. We have bonded as a whole program. Our 7th and 8th graders have started collaborating, so now it is time to start branching out into our school community. 1. Please post your ideas (ON THIS BLOG AS A COMMENT) for collaborating with another class during our WWI unit. Here are some samples:
Hi Miss Bailin,
I would like to work with a writing class. They have a two period block, so that would give us more time to collaborate. Since we will be reading All Quiet on the Western Front, I think the other class should read it as well and we do literature circles with another class. We could keep track of our progress on a group blog. At the end, we could create a tech product and post it to our webpage.

Hi Miss Bailin,
I would like to work with Gen Yes and create a multi-media product of WWI. I thought it was cool when they do claymation and I'd like to learn how to do that.

3. Tomorrow we will be getting into Carnegie, Rockefeller, Ford, J.P. Morgan, and Vanderbilt with a focus on free enterprise tomorrow. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO look at a person tonight, then you may. You will be divided into groups tomorrow and becoming an expert on your person. :) If you commit to a person tonight, then you are HIGHLY likely to be granted that person in class the following day. :)
