I have to do a final research project for my college class. On curriculum. Math to be exact.
That’s not exactly my idea of fun. Math is not my forte. I’m an ELA kind of girl through and through. Give me English Language Arts, writing in particular, any day over math. But not today. Today I must prepare a PowerPoint. On math curriculum.
So as soon as I hit publish on this blog, I’m switching gears, from writing to math.
Curriculum is content. The material we teach. Since school begins for my students on August 21st, my curriculum for rhis project and my first day of school shall be TSE2017. The total solar eclipse that will occur in Tulsa at 1:08 p.m. while my students are in my classroom.
How much cooler can you get than that for starting the year off with a bang?! Nature, God’s creation, is going to usher my students into my hands with a moment of total datkness. And I’m going to build off of that wow factor. With math, and a little science, art, history, and ELA all integrated into it! We’ve got the glasses to watch! Bring on the eclipse!
I’ve got my content, my curriculum. Now just bring on the students!
Thank you God with all your glory to supply the wow factor on my very first day of teaching!
