The First Six Weeks: Character in the Classroom
With that in mind, I created a "Learning to Learn" unit of study. This unit reflects current cognitive science and other research. Today, I updated the character lessons I'll use at the start of the year. While "Learning to Learn" will be a main topic at the start of the year, it will also be a unit we return to throughout the year as we coach students toward personal and collective success.
As you review the character lessons, what would you add or change? Would you add other units to the Learning to Learn unit? How do you make the time for these important, essential units during the first six weeks on top of subject-area curriculum work? These are questions I'm thinking about during the quiet days of summer.
