Unsung Hero PBL Update: 12/12/19
“The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”- Robert Burns
My plan for our Unsung Hero PBL is taking longer than expected. We are still drafting and revising our biographies and haven’t started the visual presentation yet. The only way to complete everything would be to send home to finish. But, I don’t know what to add this to your burden or the kids. So, my Christmas present to you is to shorten the assignment and have kids write the biography at school and omit the visual presentation part. They will finish drafting in class by Tuesday. Students will handwrite their biographies so we can display them after Christmas Break. Students can add a picture of their Unsung Hero is they have one, or they can draw one. If your child has any work done on the computer, please have them bring a copy of it.
Students will have time in class tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday to finish their biography essay. If they don’t utilize that time, they may have to complete at home.
There will not be any Greek or Latin vocabulary words next week. I hope you can find time in the evening to read together as a family. (or watch a fun Christmas movie, or decorate Christmas cookies, or build a gingerbread house, or go caroling, or go explore Christmas lights in your pj’s with hot chocolate.)
