Building a Community
Already excited to see how rich the opportunites will be today... just added links to some of the other great minds in my Project Based Learning class. Today will be our first chance to start sharing ideas and get to the business of making plans that will allow students to take an active role in their own learning in a way that will (hopefully) inspire and motivate them. I am really looking forward to sharing this process with like-minded teachers that recognize the value in looking forward with the state of music education and respecting the knowledge and skills that kids already bring with them. They are not "empty vessels" which wait to be filled with our all-powerful "knowledge and content". In fact, if we take the time to listen to them, we just may learn something ourselves. Can't wait to have this meeting of the minds!
