Day 82: The One With the Awards

Portfolios AwardLast day of school for the semester. Students present about their content area one last time. We do some advisory things (which I did a horrible job of structuring this year) and then students actually go up on stage in front of the entire 9/10 class and present the awards to other groups. Assemblies always give me the heeby-jeebies (so much classroom management, so little structure), but it felt like this one went OK. Part of the jobs of urban schools and portfolios is that students often arrive late or miss school if they are sick (which a bunch of my advisory was this year). This award went to a student who had to do a whole presentation, in English, by himself before another group member arrived. Keep in mind this kiddo has a sixth grade education level. He did pretty good.
