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!
