An Interesting Find

This fall, in addition to a full class schedule, I’ll be teaching a 4C’s group for 9th graders. These groups typically run after school hours, are optional, and they restore my faith in teenagers (😭)…and faith in the future of our country, yaddy yaddy. The young adults who choose to attend are some of the most compassionate and interesting, not to mention successful, students that I’ve gotten to work with.

But…now I’m feeling like I’ve undershot by two whole C’s! I was surprised to see this today. The two left out of my planned lineup focus that are listed here are Creativity, and Collaboration. Creativity being covered in other endeavors and groups, and Collaboration being covered by Communication/Citizenship! So, while I don’t feel like I’ve got it completely wrong, this has given me a lot to think about. 

This kind of focused character development is essential in this age group and I’m not certain why the courses aren’t implemented more widely throughout districts, or, for that matter, manditory. Either way I’m excited and ready to go with my own spin to keep it interesting. I’m not going to wish away my summer just yet. But looking ahead feels good too.

  1. You’re a teacher!!!!!!? And I am so sure you’ve mentioned this before. I’ve been extremely absent from writing, getting home school responsibilities together. How wonderful! One of the reasons why I always end up getting pointers from your page. It all makes sense!!! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    1. I am, lol. I had to take a leave when my mom got sick and while I dealt with my health shit, and by September it will be a year so I’m excited! I’m taking on everything I can in order to get back to what I love and be near the type of people I enjoy and respect again. Been too off track with the wrong things for the last few years.


      1. Mad Respect! Educators are a Blessings. 😌 I’m excited for you!

  2. Ah, I also did not know you were a teacher, but I’ve only recently seen your blog. I am an adjunct professor. Love this! I am obsessed with TEDtalks and using them in class. Critical thinking … I have so many students who cannot take notes or fill out an assignment unless I tell them exactly how to do it … it’s tedious and my faith drops a bit, but I have a few every semester that surprise me. Great schematic!

    1. Nice! I haven’t talked about it much on this page because I’ve been off for a while. It is *verry* laborious when you get those kids who feel entitled to everything and do nothing. It doesn’t happen often but there are always those individuals that help even it out! Yes, I love a good infographic!
