Notes from a professional development…

Posted in 2015-2016 school year with tags , , , , , on June 3, 2016 by Christopher Pearce

I’m on summer vacation, officially! The very weird thing about this year is that there will probably be more comics being posted here over the next two months than normal… which is a good thing, but totally off my normal schedule.

I thought I’d share some of my notes from a recent professional development my school gave this week. In the past year, I’ve found I’m a kinesthetic learner, which is something I suppose I’ve¬†always known but hadn’t really done any research on for myself.

As a capstone to The Odyssey, I’m showing my 9th grade class the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou and giving them an essay on the final exam where they have to do the ol’ compare/contrast thing. I’ve asked students to take notes and, at the end of every day, we take about 10 minutes to discuss the movie and make connections between the movie and the book.

I collected the notes today to look them over, and check this one out!

This thing’s a work of art! Anyone who’s ever seen O Brother is sure to appreciate the dozens of little details the gentleman who wrote these notes tossed into his work. Honestly, it’s awesome. In particular, I like the FOP logo in the upper left-hand corner of the notes. Folks will remember FOP as the off-brand pomade that George Clooney’s character refused to use, as he was a “Dapper Dan man.”

day seven and a half.

…I’m going to try and post five days a week, although the fifth day will always be some kind of extra thing. Today’s are some notes from my sketchbook. They are possibly helpful?
Response to the first two weeks has been a little overwhelming. Thanks to everyone who’s dropped me a line or a comment, especially the teachers! I plan on writing back to everyone this weekend
