This February, North Caroline was looking for a way to change up the morning journal routine. Ms. Ashley and Ms. Paige devised a good strategy to change from the usual written prompts, to a more fun, interactive discussion of key figures in Black History. New figures were cycled on the classrooms 3 white boards daily, ranging from Malcolm X, to Jackie Robinson, to Frederick Douglass. Students had the options to take notes, or just actively engage in the discussions, or even both! It was a cool experience that allowed both the students and teachers to learn some new things during this month!
