Carnival of the Mundane: The Summer School Edition
As the summer school session drew to a close, I found myself in a classroom of 24 sixth-going-on-seventh graders who had run out of work and were expecting a party. Instead, I gave them each a fresh sheet of paper and asked them to write a paragraph containing at least five sentences that explained to me what they had learned during summer school. Interestingly enough, I discovered that many of them learned how to use a compass rose, how to find a location given its degrees of latitude and longitude, what it means to circumnavigate, that several of them do not like to get up early during their summer vacation, and that middle schools are big (and even a little bit scary).
