I was out of the classroom on January 7. I read about Charlie Hebdo via a friend's Facebook post. Joe and his family live in Paris. I was immediately saddened. I felt very much the same way I did when September 11th happened. I wondered 'Why?' And I wanted my students to know that France had been attacked. All I could do was pass on the information since I wasn't in the classroom to process with them. So I sent them a Remind.
I decided to wait, sit and simmer in thought and posted two assignments via tackk for them to complete at the end of last week. I hoped they would ponder the tragedy as well.
