Back on Course
by Elizabeth Scheibl

Elizabeth Scheibl is working toward National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist.

December 8, 2003

I spent the weekend trying to get myself back on course. Getting motivated again after a few essentially unproductive weeks has been difficult. I'm finally finishing entry one, however, and have made some headway with the video portion of entry three. My main goal for this week is to finalize the decision about which "social studies lesson exhibiting building a classroom community" I'll tape. I hope to have a few lesson possibilities lined up, just in case my first tape is a bust. Social studies isn't like science, where you can do variations on the same lesson if you have to tape it more than once. Hopefully, I'll get something done this week. I pray everyone stays healthy -- otherwise I'm doomed!
