October 1 - 2013
We discussed journal entries and observations students had about their "text", HOW TO BE INTERESTING. This provided the opportunity to explore the frame of reference that we use when receiving new information. We noted that it is sometimes hard to hear a message if we are not willing to go outside our frame of reference and "try on" the frame of reference of the person/book/movie delivering the content. Noted the connection to being a student in school. Lots of risk involved that could take you very far outside of your comfort zone .
Reviewed strategies for preparing for their math test tomorrow: correct work, work extra problems, take concept notes, work chapter tests and quizzes from the text, make up test questions, do previously worked HW problems again (practice).
