We have had a wonderful time learning with John Porcino! He has inspired us to learn that it’s okay to make mistakes in life and in school. John has taught us that taking safe risks is what life is all about. He has been open, and honest as he’s shared his own life stories with us. John inspired us with quotes and along the way he’s even taught us how to juggle!
With his lessons, I was able to work with the students to create their own folder portfolios that share their own truths. The students wrote personal narratives about the risks they’ve taken in their life. Risks that have helped them further to grow, learn, and become stronger individuals. They will be sent home once all students have finished.
I have truly enjoyed this unit and I am so proud of the students that worked so hard to be open and honest in their own writing.
Here’s to continuing on in 2017!
