We are Seniors!
We are seniors in Ms. Sutton's ERWC class. We are committed to preparing ourselves to launch into the next phase of our lives. The "What's Next?" question is the subject of our first Expository Reading and Writing module, and we are pairing it with Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning to add the WHY to the WHAT of our life after high school plans. We learned from Simon Sinek that starting with the WHY (the inside out of his golden circle concept) is critical to our preparation. While the "What's Next?" module provides us with the WHAT, Frankl provides us with the WHY!
We are excited to study other module topics which include Racial Profiling, Juvenile Justice (paired with Just Mercy by Bryan Stephenson), Good Food/Bad Food, The Value of Life, and Into the Wild, to name a few.
Below you can read our learning dispositions. These are attitudes that we have committed to adopting this year in order to help us sustain an atmosphere that fosters competency, belonging, usefulness, optimism, and potency -- all concepts we learned from reading Richard Sagor's "Lessons from Skateboarders." CBUPO, as Sagor calls it, enables us to do the hard tasks of learning and growing and stretching!
