… When you are evaluating student’s work and you can tell they have had that lightbulb moment!
On a recent unit reflection based on the transdisciplinary theme “Where We Are In Place and Time” and the central idea “Global societies change and evolve due to major influences of an era.” this was one students response to a specific question.
Question – What does the theme “Where We Are In Place and Time” mean to you now that we have investigation previous civilizations and societies?
Student Response – “We are very advanced now compared to previous civilizations and societies. I like to think that the things that we think are impossible will be possible in the future. Don’t you think people in the past would have never thought flying was possible until some curious people including the Wright brothers came along.”
Sometimes, these sentences make it all worth while!
