Poem A Day:
No time for Poems on this day. Students are presenting their projects!!
I originally planned one day for students to share their presentations. I mean, our classes are 80 minutes. Surely, that is enough time for 20 presentations.
Students WILDLY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS FOR THIS PROJECT.
I mean, really, I am still completely blown away. I wish I had recorded a few of the presentations that still have my mind spinning.
One student gave a “Ted Talk” and the students in his class were rapt. There was an applause when he finished. Please read his words: They are gorgeous. I am also attaching the images he used while presenting-
