Consistency.  Collaboration.  Conclusions.

Each day in the "Mannixlab," the name I affectionately call my classroom, students are faced with a routine that gets them set for a fun-filled day of learning.  

Students or told the aim of the day's lesson, are given a brief introductory "Do Now" which connects the topic to their everyday lives and are faced with a series of challenges, primary source analysis, writing exercises and collaborative discussions where each and every student is challenged to critically analyze the theme of the lesson and come to a conclusion about the topic at hand.

We do this every day.
