on November 9, 2014

First,  we discussed the meaning of a reputation.  Then, I pointed out that when we are repeatedly flexible, people start to think of us as flexible and we are more likely to get privileges based on our flexibility.  Flexible Reputation Scenarios are part of the lesson. Thanks to confidential informants, some of our scenarios are real, straight from the students everyday school experiences.

I made this visual as a take away, power card, reminder.

There are many possibilities for extending and elaborating on this lesson.
