Apologies to the experts…

Believe one who has proved it. Believe an expert.

Inner-outer circle
 When I say “go,” stand up, hand up, pair up  Partner A is the person whose knees are closest to the floor; the other person is Partner B  Create a large, 2-ring circle with Partner A in the inner ring, facing Partner B  Partner B is in the outer ring  When I say go, turn to your right…walk three steps, turn and face a new partner, but don’t talk to him or her  OK, take a little think time and ponder this question (but, again, don’t talk until I say “go.”) What is one activity your kids loved in CSCOPE last year? • When I say “go,” Partner A shares for 30 seconds; when you hear the timer, switch and Partner B shares for 30 seconds. • Be sure and say, “I am so glad you’re here to share your brilliance with our students!”
