5M – Announcement March 5, 2018

Hello Parents!

Term Two is slowly coming to a close! Our “Bible: Care for our Common Home” projects are being laminated by the laminating team so we can bind them. Sorry, the wait is still in effect! Fortunately though, the children are finished their iMovie interview projects! If you could please send your child with your email then they can send it to you. Or you can always email me back and I can forward it to you. For the project the children focused on professionalism, editing and communication strategies such as:

A-Ask

L-Listen -if they keep the conversation then great, either wise….

A-Ask another question

D-Dig

D-Deeper

E-Empathize (how you feel, how you felt, how you found this situation before)

R-Readdress (start the A Ladder again)

*Students also worked on open ended questions versus closed ended questions to ensure they have a strong interview

  1. Do you have a brother? The person can simply reply, No.

vs.

  1. How many brothers and sisters do you have? I have two brothers and no sisters. I’ve always wanted a sister…..
