Just a Few Teachers (Students) Dropping Knowledge Episode #3

Recently CVLCC 9th graders participated in a project titled, The Cause and Effect Sustainability Project, in Mr. Garcia’s World Geography course. While all students in the class completed the project, certain groups took their thinking and projects to the next level. Mr. Garcia described the project as an opportunity to learn deeply about environmentalism, sustainability, and the importance of cause and effect relationships in our community and global society. As the projects grew, and learning about sustainability increased, certain students began to create more sophisticated and powerful ideas related to how we best address environmental issues that influence community or global sustainability. Students learned about sustainability and environmentalism, but also how cause and effect relationships operate in our world. Certain groups discovered that they can take steps to reverse or decrease some of these negative human impacts on the environment. The story below outlines the development of one group that took their learning to new heights, applied the knowledge they acquired in class, and took action to make our planet and community a better place!

Just a Few Teachers Dropping Knowledge!

Episode #1

The first time Dr. Ron Ritchhart visited CVLCC, to teach us about Thinking Routines, I was lucky enough to sit by Karina Gamboa as Ron taught us in the Elementary auditorium. At one point, I got to partner up and dialogue with Karina. We started talking about her work with the book Re-Thinking Mathematics and Cognitively Guided Math Instruction... and I was totally blown away! ...
