<div style=”margin-bottom:5px”> <strong> <a href=”; title=”Introductory letter” target=”_blank”>Introductory letter</a> </strong> from <strong><a href=”; target=”_blank”>Sam Boswell</a></strong> </div>

Following two weeks of learning to learn at our K-12 college for year 7 and 9 students, I made use of this framework to write a personal letter to my year 7 class.

Their replies are interesting.

I have learned that:

  • at first, some felt stressed by their shift to be with “the big kids
  • now the majority think our secondary context is “fun” because they change teachers along with subjects
  • many are “hands on” or kinaesthetic learners
  • some requested assistance with grammar/punctuation
  • reading doesn’t really rate as a hobby or interest
  • a number of students are naturalists, especially with a love of animals
  • many like quiet classrooms, and prefer to work alone or with one partner
  • football and personal devices (iPod/iPad) rate favourably
  • some would like to write stories in our English class
  • a few are musicians/ musically inclined
  • some identified Adidas as a favourite brand (“comfortable“)
