Goal 1 of The 30 Goals Challenge 2012! Click the link to find out more about the new changes to this year’s 30 Goals Challenge for Educators!

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.” Ferdinand Foch

“Manifesto: a public declaration of principles and intentions.” via Wikipedia

Goal

Short-term- Create your Me Manifesto either on a blog, using Animoto, Muzy, Glogster, or any tool. We want to learn about what makes you tick. What do you believe about learning and what kind of ideals do you carry in your classroom? If you don’t have a blog please post any of your creations on Twitter using the #30Goals hashtag or as a comment on this blog.

Long-term- We bring our ideals and values into the classroom. Our curriculum and students are influenced by them. It is important we reflect on them continuously and get our students to create their own “Me Manifestos” in order for them to identify what sets their souls on fire!

2012 Changes

  • This year we are focusing on 1 to 2 goals a week in order to have time to really reflect on the tasks and respond to each other’s posts and enhance our support system for each other.
  • In the next few days, you will see my “Me Manifesto” and I hope to see yours!

Resources

You can use any of the great presentation tools bookmarked in my Pinterest, a cool way to bookmark links!

Challenge:

Create a “Me Manifesto” and have your students create one as well.
