The Joker, the Queen of Hearts, the Evil Step-Mother, the Big Bad Wolf, Finding Nemo’s Darla, Slenderman, plus many others try desperately to reason their way onto the Nice List. We will also be treated to several of our own 6th graders who have a thing or 2 to explain.

INSTRUCTIONAL FOCUS OF THE WEEK:
Socratic seminar is an instructional strategy that increases critical thinking and communication skills. Students are required to use text-based evidence to support their reasoning, which is an expectation of the Common Core State Standards. This year, OMS students are participating in seminar throughout their classes. In the following video, a teacher explains the purpose of seminar, and you can see her students participate in a seminar. Ask your students about their thoughts on seminar and how it is being used in their classes.
