There is no doubt that if you populate your RSS Reader, create a PLN, read, write and reflect on the times in which we live that you will quickly experience the tsunami of possibilities and questions.
Where is one’s anchor in the midst of exponential change?
- Is it in the curriculum?
- Is it in the Common Core Standards?
- Is it in your teaching rationale?
- Is it in effective first instruction?
- Is it your passion?
I have discovered a framework for my anchor ~ and it can be summed up in this quote from the book titled The Passion-Driven Classroom:
“Honoring passion is more than simply giving students the technology, tools, and a few books on topics they find interesting. It is a commitment to helping students to discover for themselves-the emotional reasons linked to motivation that drive us to want to study or know something.” p.52
