Reflection: Joy Stories by the Fireside: Collaborative Book Covers of Fireside Poetry - Section 1: Intro & Welcome: It's The October Revolution!


Not every student is familiar with the October Revolution or the Julian calender, so today's activity allowed for a bit of cross-curricular teaching with history. It just happened that today was a quiz in A.P. European History; we joked that the students should bring up the Revolution and/or the calender, and get their teacher off topic to delay the quiz. Little things like this--collegiality between faculty, especially--models joy of learning and collaborating for the students.
