I came across this awesome article on the New York Times Learning Blog and thought it would be an awesome springboard for a blog post. The end of your middle school career is quickly approaching; it's an awesome time to start thinking about what you've learned and how you'll apply those lessons as you begin high school. High school is an extremely important time in your life - one that you will never forget. You'll have so many opportunities screaming for your attention, both positive and negative. You need to think NOW about how you plan to handle everything that will be knocking at your door.
In the comment section, think about advice you'd give incoming 6th graders about their middle school lives. There's a whole new pool of students who will enter the doors of CCMS and they need to know what to expect and how to handle it.
So, what have you learned? Answer the following questions on the COMMENT section of this blog post.
1. What is your response to Ms. Druckerman’s advice? What pieces of it do you agree with?
2. Has anyone in your life who is older than you ever shared with you lessons they have learned? If so, what did you get from it?
3. Give at least THREE pieces of wise advice for incoming 6th graders. Use specific examples to elaborate on your advice.
