Today, the students got even more into the rhythm of core skills. One student even remarked: “I never know math could be fun until I tried Khan. I’ve even got my eight year old brother doing it, an hour each day.”
We’re particularly stressing the importance of setting SMART goals and striving for them.
And students are becoming more and more comfortable with the Socratic Method: listening, building and offering evidence. One student today even referred to two past comments, weaving them together to make a more powerful point.
In Project Time, Eagles took on three decision making challenges, in the form of Acton sim games: Robo-rush (trial and error); Cha-Ching (a sales funnel) and Galactic Zappers (an assembly line process), contrasting these systematic ways to solve a problem with yesterday’s more “one off” methods.
Eagles now have seven different decision making processes to call on as leaders. Quite an accomplishment for just one week.
