Philosophy Today: 603, 802, 803, and 605/705

Today in 603 we reviewed all the steps to complete our Community Unit short response. Everyone is going to bring in their short response in a folder just for Philosophy. Having a Philosophy folder will help everyone to keep track of their work this trimester.

802 did an introductory activity to get their brains working on the concept of identity. They came up with topics of interest. A lot of students in 802 are interested in how their Zodiac sign influences their identity. I'm excited to start my research on their topics.

803 didn't brainstorm ideas for their identity unit yet. Hopefully we'll get to do this tomorrow.

605/705 worked on their graphic organizers so they can finish their Community Unit short response for the bulletin board.

Today in Philosophy we broke down our Short Responses into their smaller parts to help us write better. I provided a color coded model. For Homework #2 students will complete their table by putting each part of their short response in the correct box.
