sol17 #12: michael jackson

One of my students loves Michael Jackson. She's written lots of blogs about him, check them out here, here, here, and favorite one is here. And there's more, too!

And so yesterday, when I was pulling into the grocery store and The Way You Make Me Feel came on, I immediately thought of my kiddo, Gina. I sat for a few extra minutes in my car, enjoying the sweet tunes, and thinking about the exit ticket I gave on Friday.

To my prompt of "I wish my teacher knew..." she replied with, "that we should learn about MJ, because he was history too!"

I just had to laugh to myself a bit, because of my kiddo with such an interest in this artist. While I can't promise her a unit on Michael Jackson, I hope that this blog will be enough.

Maybe Passion Projects at the end of the year, that would work, right?

In the spirit of Gina's interest in Michael Jackson, here's an idea - share about a favorite singer or song, and what stories that song brings to mind.

Want another idea? Check out the padlet.
