Seeing the Individual

Classroom teachers are in charge of large groups of students.  Often the focus is on the group--what's working best for the group.

Today, I want to see beyond the group.  I want to look into the eyes of each individual.  I want to converse with each child about his or her creativity project.

I want to encourage, notice and guide.  My goal today is 22 personal conversations related to students' innovation.  I'll share that goal with students during our project meeting so they can help me make the space for each conversation.
