Re: [Channel-talkgeography] Anyone currently enrolled?

Hi,
 Im in and out of the workshop. Havent had the time,
though it is really well done.

I teach modern world now, and english. My favorite
thing to do to start out was to pre assess them.
Perhpas you already did. But for me that was the best
way to see what they knew. Many high schoolers barely
know the continents, and dont get the Eurasia thing,
though here its still taught as Europe and Asia. And
that Australia is a continent and a country.

Anyway, I'm a few days ahead of them as well, and I
suggest to just take lots of notes to recall what you
do each day, and to remember what worked and what
didn't.

Ok. I'm done.
Rachelle
