This second image relates to the YouTube post you will see, which relates to the film, Stand and Deliver. As you may remember, we often do a journal reflection using the Learning Skills and Work Habits section of the report card. For this term, the skills we looked at are circled in orange. A description of each item is listed in the comments section.
Here is a sample one I did to remind you of the process. The writing does not need to be as formal or teacher sounding as this:
When I decided to show the film Stand and Deliver I never made the connection between it and the Learning Skills and Work Habits section of the report. Jaime Escalante, the teacher in the film, uses this word ganas, which translates into "want," in English. The teacher uses ganas to refer to desire. If I could neatly summarize that section of the report car, I would probably refer to it as the "ganas section."
I forgot that Jaime Escalante has been dead for over 6 years, but his legacy lives on. Why he felt it was important that students had the knowledge and skills necessary to comprehend a subject, he also knew that students had to develop and nurture their ganas.
I am off, with Mr. Chung, to the Track and Field qualifying meet at Birchmount Stadium and will be back on Thursday.
