I received an email yesterday that gave me an idea. Why not create an area for the trailblazers–that’s all of you in the course–to share your success stories? It was exciting to read about a great experience that resulted immediately after class and I thought it would be a wonderful source of encouragement…not to mention we can celebrate in public and strengthen our learning community across the network!
Here’s our first success story from the Capitol Hill campus:
Hi Dr. Brown,
I am proud to report that I did the “speed dating” exercise in my class today as a conclusion to our 2 week unit on immigration, specifically the Dream Act. Students talked about their position, how their perspective may have changed, what questions they still have, etc. Then we debriefed the exercise. It was a wonderful experience and there was a lot of critical thinking going on!
Add your own story by responding in the comment area. Thanks C.R. for beginning the celebration!
