Today is another no school day for us. We have had a 4 day weekend due to the mild winter that Indiana had and the fact our calendar puts make up weather days on a Friday/Monday around Easter. It has made for a nice little break.
I am working on my post test but I may have to delay it a day. I have a good friend whose mother passed away on Saturday so the arrangements for her will probably cause me to miss a bit of school.
With that being said, I am excited to post test and see what kids are picking up. I fully expect students to perform better on geography. I also think the causes of the war will be more aparent to them and probably stick better than with the control group. Time will tell.
I was out over the weekend looking at COTS games. I was trying to find something that could potentially be used in my class. I haven’t had any luck as of now but any suggestions would be welcome. Civ is a possibility but I think much too difficult to integrate quickly and easily in my class. Sim City is also a possibility but again too time consuming. Maybe that is just me though. I can’t play a sim game of that nature and not want to play for hours on end.
Check back in a couple of days and I should have a post test report.
