I’m still posting at my travel blog, but the Friday morning experience got me thinking about central subject.
Here is the full Friday post : of Atlatls and Tomahawks
But what has got me thinking was the visit to the Jeffers petroglyphs. If I lived near this site I would connect my curriculum to it. What can you teach utilizing this site?
- Geography and Cartography
- I’m sure I could figure out math with the help of a math teacher
- Language – symbolic language
- Human history
- Natural history
So the challenge for me is to find a place or thing that is connected to my world in Chicago that we do NOT do in the lower school that can be as comprehensive for us (or just a way to connect our work in the English classroom).

That is the sign of a great teacher. Always thinking of different ways to help the kids learn. I wish my kid could study with u
Lovely compliment – thank you – I’m only trying to be the teacher that I wish I had had. Thank you, by the way, for making me laugh out loud regularly and being there with me in spirit as I too no longer can afford my cleaning lady and swab my own toilets.
You are more than welcome. xoxo
