Applying one extra degree of temperature to water means the difference between something that generates enough force to power a machine - a beautifully uncomplicated metaphor that ideally should feed our every endeavor - consistently pushing us to make the extra effort in every task, action and effort we undertake. Two-twelve serves as a forceful drill sergeant with its motivating and focused message while adhering to a scientific law - a natural law. It reminds us that seemingly small things can make tremendous differences. So simple is the analogy, that you can stop reading right now, walk away with the opening thought firmly planted in your mind and benefit from it for the rest of your life. This comes straight out of a book called "212° the extra degree by s.l. parker.
I think this speaks loads about my class. In Algebra 1, my goal for you is to put forth that one extra degree that will push you over your goal! As students, sometimes we forget what learning is all about. We do what we have to do to get by, and go on. Sometimes we don't take that little bit of extra time and effort to do just a little bit more. In this book it focuses on just that one deegree made all the difference. As we face a new year, I want it to be your goal to put forth tha one extra degree in everything you do. Whether it be to do extra corrections, come in for tutorials, do an extra project, or even just set your goal one step up from what you had last year.
At 211 degrees, water is hot!
At 212 degrees, it boils!
What a difference just one degree can make when we change the way you think and the way you act!
I look forward to everything that comes this year and getting to know each one of you better each and every day!
I hope you have one of the best years ever!
