Wacky Wednesday: Homework

This weekend, Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving. In my community, students have an extra day off school, Friday, due to the Professional Development day on Friday. This encourages some families to turn the four day break into a mini-holiday and take off Thursday too.

Yesterday, on his way out of class, Jim told me that he wouldn’t be at school on Thursday.

“Oh, where are you going?”
“Boston,” he replied sheepishly, obviously aware that he was skipping school. “Um, is there anything you want me to do when I’m away?”
“Yes! I want you to check out the marathon course and tell me everything you can about it.”

His face lit up.

And, now, I have to figure out how I’m going to assess it. Any ideas?
