A Whelming Flood: Genesis 8,9

8 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded. 2 Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. 3 The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down,4 and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat…..9 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.

What’s apart of your flood right now?

What thoughts do you have as you sit in the ark?

What can we pray for today?

Digital Citizenship

What aspects of digital citizenship need to be addressed when conducting formative assessments with your students?

Genius Hour

Genius Hour Unit 2: Make a plan

To begin, develop your idea into a project goal. Next, list the first three steps that you will take to make that goal a reality. Then, make a list of resources that you will need including the tech tools that you may integrate into the project.

Genius Hour Unit 3: The Pitch

You want to “sell” your idea in a creative and interesting way. Think about this as a commercial for your idea that unveils your genius plan! You will have 1-2 minutes.

Include the following:

  • Your name
  • Reasons you chose the project (story, history, definition, interest, etc.)
  • Materials/resources/technology tools needed
  • First three steps to get started
  • Obstacles you may face in the process
  • Explain how the project enhances learning.

Your presentation may be formatted in one of the following ways:

  • A Prezi, Google Slide presentation, Adobe Spark Video, iMovie or i Movie trailer, or another digital format that is at least 60 seconds, but no longer than 2 minutes
  • Minimum of 6 slides but maximum of 10 slides. Use the bullets for items to include as a guide.

Lunch Hour at 11:30am/Back to Work at 12:30pm

TEC21 Challenges

1. Develop and incorporate a digital assessment activity to use with your students in a lesson or unit you’ll be teaching before we meet again in January.

2. During the week of December 9–15, have your students join millions of students around the world by participating in an “Hour of Code” (An awesome activity to engage your students in during the craziness of December.)

3. Post to TEC21 Educators Group on Facebook. It can be a comment, an answer to someone’s question, a resource, a picture of you teaching and/or your students learning, or a sample of a digital assessment you used with your students.

4. Be a resource–an inspiration–to one of your colleagues.

5.  Registration for the TEC21 Workshop Program for the 2020/2021 school year opens on January 2, 2020. Please encourage a fellow teacher to join us next year! Share with them the value of connecting with other Lutheran school teachers and the impact it’s had on you and your students. Thank you in advance for supporting our mission and vision and being an ambassador for TEC21 whenever you can! #TEC21lcms #LutheranSchoolsThrive #LuthEd
