In our Do Now, we had to

Gallery Walk:

During the Gallery Walk, we would go up to different pictures and quotes and write              
 down what we noticed and wondered. Then we discussed about what we noticed and wondered
about the gallery walk with our partners. Lastly, we answered the following questions:
1. What are some words or phrases that stuck out to you in the gallery walk?
2. What connections can you make between the gallery walk and your learning at Graded?
3. What do you think the purpose of grades are? How do grades fit  onto the overall learning you will experience at school.                                
Dominick and Raj working very Hard!
Qualities of a Learner:
We had to create a t-chart with three sections on our desks:          
Learners say, Learners do, Learners are. Some people wrote that they think learners are...curious, listeners, do their best, challenge themselves, don't give up...say..."no problem I can do this", "there's no best answer", "what mistakes did I make?".

Formative Check: Vocab + Imperialism:
We took a short two-page-sided formative quiz on our vocab that we learned and what we learned about imperialism in China.
