Chivalry is NOT dead yet
One of the Social Studies teachers at my school is doing a really neat assignent. It is called the Chivalry Assignment. She has assigned each "knight in training" a "maiden" to spoil. He is required to bring her a small gift--flower, poem, note--each day. In turn, the maiden must write a thoughtful thank you note for each gift. The queen gets a daily gift from each child as well. Also, today they all needed to bring a gift to another teacher and tell them why they were chosen as the recipient of the special gift.
This particular teacher is on a different interdisciplinary team than I am. Just a few of her students come to me for math, so I didn't even know about the assignment until today, when one of my students presented me with a soda and asked me to sign his form verifying that he did complete the task. The soda was a nice gift, but the other gift I got from him was even better. He told me that he chose me because I work so hard to make sure that he understands and is successful in math.
