I often get to know my students but I have never asked them directly – “What is your spark?  Your passion?”.

I wonder what it might have done for each of the students in my classes if I asked.  What kind of learning could have been done in my room if I honoured their sparks – fashioned the class around developing these?  What might it have been like for my students to be seen not only by me but their fellow students?

Oh the power of a spark!
