The "speak your mind" project has spent the last few days exploring the rules of communication. Daily, students have been challenged to approach topics with passion, and to find unique perspective.
Today, I learned that the quickest way to find the fiery passion dorment in each of my students was to offend them. After making calculated unflattering remarks about student's taste in music, and generational stereotypes, I found my students fire.
Long story short, our group is heating up, and we are looking forward to sharing the fruits of the fire later this week.
Here's to students learning to keep their fire alive!
