Interdisciplinary texts

You will review texts related to topics studied in other classes.

After reviewing the texts, you will sit in a circle with classmates, where you will ask and answer questions, think critically and offer opinions.

Every student must arrive to the circle with 3 prepared questions.

There will be two circles, the inner circle will have a discussion, while the outer circle observes and takes notes on completing a Socratic Circle – feedback form.

Ah come on, that’s what I want, we’ll meet
in Mesopotamia. oh oh oh

(We’re goin’ down to meet) I ain’t no student,
(Feel those vibrations) of ancient culture
(I know a neat excavation) Before I talk
I should read a book.
But there’s one thing I do know,
There’s a lot of ruins in Mesopotamia.

Six or eight thousand years ago
They laid down the law. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haa
Six or eight thousand years ago
They laid down the law. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haa

In Mesopotamia. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haa
