I came up with the "iConnect" concept through while thinking about ways to bring a more well-rounded, meaningful learning experience to my students. As part of the iConnect movement in my class this year, our focus is on how we connect to our curriculum and making connections across our curriculum, but more importantly, how we connect to each other and our world. Through the overlying iConnect concept, we will be connecting with authors and discussing the joy of the writing process, the deeper meanings and effects of good literature, and exploring a variety of genres and writing styles. We will also be connecting with classes across the world in a literary fair that brings an engagement in reading and understanding text that also teaches an appreciation for new cultures and ideas. As Brockstars, it is our ambition to connect with others in meaningful ways to enhance learning for all. We have several projects this year that will do just that. This wiki will showcase our work and the effects of our iConnect movement and culminate here on this page with our iConnect projects about how we individually made significant connections in our world that brought about a change. Our learning is not jsut for us, but for us to use to make an impact on our community. Through the iConnect concept, we will take our learning to the next level and hopefully inspire others to connect in new ways in their own lives.

Our first PSA of the year! This is our anti-bullying PSA to kick off Rachel's Challenge and to establish our commitment to stopping bullying in our class, school, and community.
