#pw4 Idea Networks

A segment of a social networkImage via WikipediaThis week explicitly explain to students how different ideas they are learning are in fact connected. Give yourself 1000 bonus points if you can help them see the connections across different subjects.

Another way to think of this: "Structure learning around the big ideas of your discipline." Can you articulate one or two of these big ideas?

After a week of doing this are your students starting to make connections you hadn't thought of?

Did this have any impact on conversations in class?

Were there any changes in the atmosphere (culture) of your classroom?
