This my first time using blogging as a form of expression and grading, I am both excited and curious about it's success (and failures). For the most part it is also something new for students but they are trying.
I also hear that they like my class also!!! That is always great :)

I created an American History unit that I evaluated the impact of the constitution and Bill of Rights on current day issues. As well as analyze the effectiveness of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendment to the United States from multiple perspectives. This unit also provided students with the opportunity to incorporate active citizenship activities for the 21st Century. The students (hopefully) acquired the necessary skills to become active and informed citizens value diversity and promote cultural understanding by working collaboratively that to address challenges that are inherent in living an interconnected world.All students will acquire the skills needed to be active, informed citizens who value diversity and promote cultural understanding by working collaboratively to address challenges that are inherent in living an interconnected world.
Performance Assessment- Collect various assignments that have been completed throughout the marking period. The assignments will demonstrate “activeness” and promotional skills of diversity around the world.
Performance Assessment- Identify a problem and conduct research and present the information. Ex. Student Action Project

Welcome to my Personal Education reflections!
During this blogging experience, I will formally and informally address any issues and concerns with various forms of feedback (both positive and negative). This blog will strictly discuss my thoughts and feelings on suggested school and curriculum reforms.
Weekly, and some times daily, I will provide my perspective and position on various topics surrounding education, especially in the urban school.
Again, welcome to my personal reflection page! This is the place where I will talk freely and would like for you to too!
Now, let the blogging begin!
