On Friday and Monday this cycle (Day 3 and 4), I’ll give you a brief survey to see how you feel about different subjects in school. I do this every year; it helps me get to know you, and it’s also really interesting to see how attitudes change over time. This is fun because it involves old-school technology: colored pencils and paper. We’ll talk about how things are going so far and will work on making sure you’ve got working technology.
We’ll be off on Tuesday, August 15th to celebrate India’s Independence Day. At midnight on August 15, 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first prime minister, gave his famous ‘Tryst with Destiny” speech. You can read the full text of the address here. And below, you can watch an original video of the first, and most famous part of the speech.
