Barack Obama September 24, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Alexis Wilkinson @ 7:35 pm

So I was absent monday because I was sick but when I came back wednesday Raven read “Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope” by Nikki Grimes. It was a children’s book but it was very inspirational. We discussed that this book could be used in a history or psychology class, as well as on career day or even in a geography lesson. Raven chose a very good book to share with the class. If I ever decide to teach in the future, I will definitely have this book in my classroom.

We also worked on our cheer for the up-coming Newberry College field trip. It was so much fun, trying to watch all the guys…STOMP and SHAKE! ha lol:]

Current Educational News: “New York Test Scores Raise Eyebrows”

website: www.edweek.org

This article says that test scores and report card grades in NY have drastically increased. It states that 97% of NYC public schools got an A or B under the distrcit’s grading policy. But some people are saying that just because scores are going up does not mean schools are getting better.

I am really excited about our field trip tomorrow:] and I’ll tell everyone all about it soon!!
