Ever read something and think, yep, that’s it. A great day in the classroom? It’s busy, chaotic, meaningful, and the kind where you step back and realize that the conversations your students having are all about learning. Yesterday we had a Mystery Skype, researched election issues, debated topics, Skyped with a class in Wyoming to share our KidVote project, and created jobs for our election project. It was hectic, it was chaotic, it was real. Then today I read this tweet by Sean Junkins. It’s always worth it, especially when it’s real, authentic learning. Thanks for the reminder, Sean.
