After updating HW requirements for the week and checking in on organizational and planner questions I facilitated an opportunity for students to practice their "teacher-think" skills.  Students asked me questions to elicit all the HW requirements for a text book assignment I had for them from "How to be Interesting".  The assignment requires students to write 10 sentences about one page in "Step 2" from the book.  They need to record the page number, draw the image on the page and then explain it's intent (no literal interpretations), followed by either how that thought has played out in their own lives and/or how they think that thought could be of benefit to them in the future.
