Italian Teacher's Summer Homework List
The Huffington Post published an article last June that is getting some new traffic. The article titled Get Off The Computer And Complete This Italian Teacher’s Summer Assignment. You Won’t Regret It.
has some of the best summer homework assignments I've ever seen.
A summer homework list assigned by Cesare Catà of Don Bosco High School in Fermo, a small town on the Adriatic Sea in northeastern Italy, is currently going viral across that country.Go check out the 15 assignments Cata gave his students and then come back and tell me all homework is a bad thing. I think I'm going to try my hand at a number of them because they are so great. And who cares if the homework list is from 2015, I think it's timeless and I may even consider adapting it for my 2016-17 school year students. We'll see.
Instead of giving his students required reading assignments, Catà gave them a prescription for how to live an inspired life, telling them that in the next few months, they should take time to admire a sunrise, dream about the future and read, because reading is “the best form of rebellion you have.”
Thanks to my pal Marialice for tweeting it out so I could find it.
