  2. 2. Some fifth graders and John Hopkins’ graduate students interviewed each other about their ideal school. 01/27/2012
  3. 3. Fifth graders and the graduate students worked together to create a project to represent what they wanted in their dream school. 01/27/2012
  4. 4. We visited a real colonial school and each one of us had a new name and a story to go with it. We learned that the students had to gather sticks and put them in the stove for heat. If a student forgot their wood they had to sit in the coldest part of the room. Also, whenever the teacher called on a student they had to stand up and answer with Yes, Ma’am. In an ideal school we would never have a dunce cap or have to go outside to the bathroom. <ul><li>jjjjjjjjj </li></ul>01/27/2012
  5. 5. We visited other schools and one was a Montessori school. The outside environment didn’t appear welcoming , but once we got inside it was really nice. They had art work all over the walls in random places. Some rooms had class pets, such as rats and there was a lot of natural light. In addition there was a student kitchen. Milo decided natural light and a student kitchen would be important parts of an ideal school. 01/27/2012
  6. 6. We visited classes in our own City Neighbors Charter School and observed great lessons. 01/27/2012
  7. 7. Reading Urbanite and brainstorming inspired us to figure out what is essential in a dream school. <ul><li>Environment </li></ul><ul><li>Food </li></ul><ul><li>Community </li></ul><ul><li>Materials </li></ul><ul><li>Subjects </li></ul><ul><li>Arts </li></ul>01/27/2012
  8. 8. We explored metaphors and similes using a tree to represent the different parts of our dream school. 01/27/2012
  9. 9. We worked with a partner and chose a country to study. Then we read about the schools and discussed the similarities and differences between schools in other countries and US schools. We also had a teacher who had spent months in Japan come share her experiences with our class. 01/27/2012
  10. 10. Miss Bobbi, one of the founders of CNCS, told us the story of our school’s creation. She brought artifacts and sang a song she wrote. It was about how she was feeling when it took a long time before anyone read the proposal for the new charter school. 01/27/2012
  11. 11. We wrote a research paper to show how our research helped us decide on the important aspects of a great school. 01/27/2012
  12. 12. Then we wrote persuasive paragraphs to convince others to embrace our ideas . 01/27/2012
