Creating Your Ideal School (and Channeling a little bit o' Socrates)

Today, we chipped deeper into the iceberg!

Way down!

Cracking the dense ice!

Whoa, man, ice chips are flying everywhere!

Another way of saying the above is: we read "Plato's Allegory of the Cave" (which which really spoken by Socrates) and tried to grapple with what Socrates says life is all about.

Here is a link to the reading that we performed aloud and acted out in class today. 

Then, we segued into our IDEAL SCHOOL project, in which each of us will have to decide what core values and ideas matter most when creating and designed a school.

Here is the link to the overview of the IDEAL SCHOOL project. 

Tomorrow and Thursday, we will meet in the library to workshop and create our schools, and we'll continue discussing Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and "Plato's Allegory of the Cave" as we do so.

Our word of the day today is PERFIDIOUS, which means deceitful, as in this example, "The villain was perfidious when he told me that he was only trying to find the secret to my super power."

Our word of the day from yesterday was IMBUE, which is a verb that means to fill completely.

See you tomorrow, and peace!

Mr. R
