This is the fourth of a series of posts outlining an ever-evolving plan to re-imagine and reconstruct a self-paced, collaborative, student-centered learning environment to better prepare kids for challenges they’ll face in a rapidly-changing 21st century workplace. Comments, critiques, suggestions, etc. are always welcome.
Since much of this will conflict with preconceived notions, common sense, and other conditioned reflexes, I offer these words to strengthen your/my resolve:
Questions in our upraised hands, and answers we’ll surprise
Like the caterpillar who, does seem to death defy
It might take a miracle, belief may then belie
Fate it seems that common sense, is fated to deny
Battles rage within us all, where truth is compromised
There dreams, like tissue paper wings, are torn and tossed aside
