1st Day of 2nd Semester Highlights

Today was the opening of the second semester.  It was not possible to get into every single teacher's classroom in our Academy, but I was able to visit many.  Throughout the school day, I tweeted "highlights" from these classroom Walk-Through's:

1st day of 2nd semester highlights: Teacher reviewing 's "Points of Pride", focusing on Graduation Rate.

1st day of 2nd semester highlights Teacher explaining how Edmodo will be used throughout the semester & its accessibility.

Teacher stressing to class, "If you come to class every day and do what is expected, I PROMISE good things will happen."

1st day of 2nd semester highlights: Students engaged & using manipulatives, investigating distance, midpoint, & slope.

1st day of 2nd sem. highlights: Groups of students describe the behavior/characteristics of various "stereotypes" (Sociology)

1st day of 2nd sem highlights: Building collaborative classroom atmosphere thru icebreaker 2 Truth's/1 Lie. AP participates!

1st day of 2nd semester highlights: "Everything & anything related to politics begins & ends with The Constitution." 

1st day of 2nd semester highlights: Communicating the desire to make the content & information applicable to students' lives.

1st day of 2nd semester highlights: All available wall spaces of classroom are LOADED w/ content-related material. 

1st day of 2nd sem highlights: Students provided opportunity to write about challenge/situation could take them out of focus.

I emailed the tweets to the appropriate teacher as a recognition of their efforts, but wanted the tweets to remain somewhat ambiguous in regards to subject and teacher.

Thanks for reading!
