Welcome back, everyone, for the home-stretch of the 2015-2016 school year!
Go Blue! Runkle apparel is now available, thanks to the efforts of our Student Council, at the Runkle Webstore (www.amerasport.com (http://www NULL.amerasport NULL.com)).
Congratulations to Boston Marathon finishers Lauren Vulcano, Nadene Moll, Katie Fiumara, and Chad Pelton, for putting the RUN in RUNKLE! You can check out pictures from this great day on Twitter @RunkleSchool, thanks to Donna, stationed in Wellesley, and Erica Landry, at the finish line! (I went a despairing 0-for-4 with my camera at Mile 6 in Framingham.)
Congratulations as well to our 6th graders for their Living History Museum production before vacation! Those in attendance during the day and evening gatherings got to learn from and rub elbows with Pythagoras, Sonia Sotomayor, Pope Francis, Shirley Temple, and so many others! Thank you to Geri Belle and all of her parent volunteers who help put this annual Runkle-only extravaganza together.
Prior to vacation several of our staff members joined me at Lawrence School, where Principal Rick Rogers had invited Educational Theorist Ron Ritchhart from Harvard University’s Project Zero to speak about his work on making students’ thinking visible and creating “cultures of thinking” within classrooms and schools. Some of Dr. Ritchhart’s talking points about learning which resonated were:
• Learning is a consequence of thinking.
• Learning and thinking are as much a collective enterprise as they are an individual endeavor.
• Learning occurs at the point of challenge.
• Learning is an active process and involves getting personally involved.
• Questions not only drive learning but also are outcomes of learning.
The Runkle staff as a whole will be looking more deeply into Dr. Ritchhart’s work during the 2016-2017 school year.
