1 February,2018By: Anna DeRoos
In connection with what we are doing in social studies class, I asked students to look at a list of skills they should work hard to acquire to be successful in 7th grade and beyond. They were asked to pick three items from the list that they consider to be their greatest strengths and three items that they believe are their greatest areas of weakness. They will be encouraged to use their strengths to their advantage in the classroom and work on their weaknesses throughout the semester.
