Today I shared with my students that they would not be working on passion projects tomorrow, the traditional Friday I had set them up to be but rather on Monday.
One of them said "We should always do them on Monday."
"Why?," I asked.
"Mondays start the week and are rough. We need something to look forward to coming into school and doing" was the reply.
I had been thinking with Friday being the end of the week that working on Passion Projects then would give them a chance to take a break from all that has come there way. Instead, by listening to my students' feedback, I learned that they would prefer Mondays.
Lesson learned. Time to tweak our timeline.
