Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Describe, Design, Do, Determine

DREAM BIG

1. Describe the problem you'd like to solve or objective you'd like to achieve





2. Design an experiment or project to explore the mystery you'd like to solve or idea you want to test
DO BIG!
3. Do it!

a. Have as much fun as you can responsibly handle.

b. ****As you search for answers, be OK with frustration and struggle. It means new learning is near. New learning means new growth. New growth means a new you (your creativity, caused by your frustration, will bring answers). Creativity creates.....you.

c. *If you are not more at the end of the day than you were when you walked in, we both have done a terrible diservice to you; disrespecting who you are, and not honoring everything you are to be!





4. Determine the amount of learning that has taken place. How? Always go back and start with what you know. In this case it's your objective or the intriguing problem you wanted answers to.

Reflect on what you've learned. Evaluate the outcome(s) of your experiment or project. Don't forget about any new or unexpected learning that might have taken place. Some great inventions were made by accident and "failure" (i.e. post-it notes).







BE BIG!
Respect who you are by turning in a paper reflecting your best effort.

Honor who you are to be by listening to new questions that come to mind and pursuing those on your own.

    I am on level 3 of my science project By Nikolas Lachinski
    Today my group worked on the power of fusion and we fused 2 dies together and created every color between blue and red and we got at least 30 different shades including all the greens. I also finished the fusion technique to finish the die

    HI it's Zak and I want to say , we are on level 2 now and so far learned that kinetic enegy is due to the train going down the track and potential enegy is made by the train not moving or going up the track and friction by the wind and the track.

    (I help made the rollar coster)ZAK

    Wow!
    It looks like everyone had fun and learned along the way today. Wish I had been there. Can't wait to be living the same kind of day tomorrow, with the rest of the class.

    Summer brought me up to speed with the details of the day.

    See you tomorrow.
