This week, all three classes held community meetings. The meetings were shorter than normal this week, because our previous lesson took longer than planned. Summaries of our meetings are below.
Second period is glad Jimena brought a stuffed dog to use as our talking piece. Even though we agreed to last week, we have not yet emailed Mrs. Brown about Mr. Webber, our favorite substitute teacher. We agree to take a few minutes from Reading Zone on Tuesday to send the emails. As new business, we discussed bullying which has become problem in our classroom. Mr. DeVicente and Mrs. Serafin actually came by before the meeting to discuss this with our class in Spanish. After we came to the following agreement: In private, tell an adult if your friend is being bullied. The adult will not tell the bully that you told. The minutes of our meeting are available here.
Fourth period had a very brief meeting this week. We discussed the problem of people not completing the required number of topics and segments in System 44 and Read 180. Our class came up with the following solution: If a teacher notices that we are not completing our topics/segments in System 44/Read 180, we agree to move our desks so the adults can see our screens, allow an adult to sit by us, and allow an adult to check our tabs at any time by using Control +H. The minutes of our meeting are available here.
Sixth period also held a very brief meeting this week. We discussed the problem of our class taking too long to complete the daily plans. In response, we made the following agreement: To solve the problem of transitions taking too long, we agree to make our transitions in silence. If we talk during passing period, Ms. Priester will give us reminders and/or talk to us outside. The minutes of our meeting are available here.
