Weekly Reflection for 6.8.17

June 8, 2017

As an educator, do you have any ideas for creating a lesson or activity based on anything you discovered this week? 

After watching the story telling videos and reading the article on teaching, I am grappling with the idea of learning as quest. As a high school teacher, I already try and make learning about history and politics real world/authentic, but often when asked about why we learn, I counter with the importance of developing critical thinking abilities, about working towards a worldview that expands beyond our limited geographic boundaries, but rarely do I speak about knowledge as a personal and transformative process. Working on developing curriculum that expands on this idea is something that I will be spending time thinking about and reflecting on.
