Good day seventh grade! Yesterdays homework wasn't put up here, but the homework was to write an email to Beau Ewan and Heidi Guth. Beau Ewan was an old fifth grade teacher at our very own school and now he is a professor at a university. Heidi Guth is sailing on the World Wide Voyage and she is the only woman among a crew of all men. We are only going to write rough drafts for now and Ms. Enriquez will correct our rough drafts. In the emails we will talk about how they both inspired us and tell them about ourselves.
St. Brendan sailed on a coracle, a traditional Irish boat that was made with a wood frame and wrapped in leather. He was one of the 12 apostles of Ireland. They say that he may have sailed to North America from Ireland. Today Ms. Enriquez brought in a visitor named Brendan. Brendan is a film maker and he is making a film about how people are learning about nature and culture. We are the next generation and so that means we are the ones that can make changes to our world. Brendan is going to be interviewing some students after class and sometime next week. Be prepared as you might be interviewed!
