If you’re new to DIAS, a warm welcome! We are an international community of educators that on a weekly basis do some kind of wrap-up of the past week. Often the host of the week will suggest a theme or format (e.g., “Wrap up your week in a 3-word sentence.”).
Considering our current economic realities, I’m pretty sure, to some degree, all of us are facing some challenges in our school communities. With so much bad news in the media (and in our lunch rooms too), I’d love to hear something that inspired you this week. Something that made the week worthwhile. But if you just need to vent a bit, that’s fine too.
So please click on the comment link and share your DIAS! At the end of the week, I’ll release all comments. Hope to see yours there:-)
I spent Wednesday afternoon with a group of 5th graders at a Title 1 (high poverty) school, where students were wrapping up their documentary film Hope for Haiti, when a student shared, “I feel like I’ve done something good.”
