Although I think the fellows were a bit concerned, the first of the "Double Demo Days" has come and gone... very well.
Natalie and Jackie both did amazing jobs of demonstrating constructivist, student-centered, interactive activities that kept everyone engaged. The teaching of personal writing in the form of "gift" poetry and the link between the past and present as part of a high school histroy classroom were both extremely powerful lessons that any grade level or content area can use. Thank you both.
The demos continue to be engaging, amazing, and inspiring.
