Our initial brainstorming planning meeting was held 15th March, where we were pitched the idea to my year 9 classes English teacher Makerita. We talked about themes and how it could look to both subjects and ways we could collaborate on the teaching and learning of texts. After the meeting we went away to think about what we needed to have done individually with our separate achievement objectives and also ways to connect with each other.
Today we had a google hangout session where we focussed on the plan itself. We started with brainstorming, then talked about ideas for creating and sharing of the student learning. I discussed the problems students had in connecting with their community and we unpacked what the reality was and how we could develop it further. Here is a brainstorm plan that I developed from our meeting.
The blue circles underneath fit under each area of people, place and community so I didn't try to link them together. We will discuss this further at our next meeting this Friday.
