  • Leading From The Heart » Evolving stories, creating change/ A reflection on Kevin’s story writing experiment
    in the past where I hand out pieces of paper with different story starters on them Students are given 2 minutes to write the timer buzzes and they have to pass off their story to the right receiving one from their peer to the left to continue for another 2 minutes and so on Kids love it I use it as a writing workout to get the juices flowing Our story is taking place via Google Wave though Kevin has also begun the story in two other places as well find out how you can participate Here is the starter written by Kevin To say she was connected would be too simple a statement She was never disconnected Even in her sleep her dreams came to her in bursts of 140 characters She knew this because she often woke up and jotted down her dreams a habit she acquired in her college psychology course Her notebook was full of nighttime ramblings And so the night of the storm with the weather forecasters freaking out about the high winds and possible lightning she too began to freak out She checked for batteries She stood waiting near the electrical outlets ready to pull the plugs at the first flash of lightning The last thing she expected was the knock at the door but then the unexpected always comes at the unexpected moment So so far there are 2 variations based on this same starter the third is being launched this morning It reminds me that people have an amazing capacity for creativity With the same givens different results are possible This can be transfered onto our own work in classrooms and organizations We do not need to be stuck in one story Especially if we collaborate with others we can certainly evolve our stories and trigger change for ourselves and those around us Google Tracy Rosen 7 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Kevin Hodgson on December 29 2009 at 7 52 am And just like in the classroom it takes participants to collaborate a collaboration of one is sort of lonely I hope others do jump into the mix either at our Google Wave http tinyurl com yjlln5g or the new Etherpad site that I have set up http etherpad com cY2ufkguQ2 I am as curious as you about where the story is going but also about how collaboration can expand with technology Kevin Kevin Hodgson s last blog Concept Mapping Two Collaborative Stories Tracy on December 29 2009 at 8 01 am How it can expand with technology as well as with the social networks technology now affords us the people bits so to speak I m from Eastern Ontario I m not sure where you or the other participants are from It could be neat to know how far and wide this story is being pieced together Talk about

    need to know I can speak to him before I completely burn out That I need to remember to take care of myself On Sunday morning my boyfriend held me in his arms during a bit of a moment after I had put the dogs into the veranda because they were driving me crazy running around the house and soon after noticed they had torn up a garbage bag I had forgotten to bring outside and decorated said veranda with its contents So what the heck have I learned this time that is important to me Well for one that it s a continuous process this focusing on what is important shtick That s what they call keeping balance in some parts One thing I sure learned in the past few days is that keeping people in the picture rather than on the sidelines helps everything else fall into place When I was in my boyfriend s arms he didn t say anything but just let me blubber for a while until I found the words I needed to say I get so frustrated with myself when I set myself up to fail when I make choices that make my life harder than it needs to be Working and living so far apart Putting the garbage bag in the veranda instead of directly out to the garbage bin Not learning about the ins and outs of heating an old house in the winter Not approaching people for help before I get overwhelmed I may be a little bit hard on myself as well Maybe A little The little upsets and failures are being measured by my out of whack yard stick for success I was teased this weekend about being slightly ticked off that I received an overall mark of 97 in the course I took this semester Time to reevaluate choices create some of that hope for the future I m always talking about But guess what I m thinking of actually letting other people help me out with that Novel idea I know Google Tracy Rosen 11 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Marcy Webb on December 22 2009 at 9 19 am I can relate completely to being willing to allow others to help You have a good principal as well Marcy Webb s last blog The Date with Mr Brooklyn Tracy on December 22 2009 at 9 24 am Hi Marcy and nice to see you What is it about being willing to allow others to help us that is so hard to just allow to happen Seems to be the question of my life Marcy Webb on December 23 2009 at 4 18 pm For me it s feeling weak and vulnerable After all strong people don t ask for help at least this is what we re led to believe Of course it isn

  • Leading From The Heart » rant
    to be devoid of emotion and that reminders of our humanity are needed from time to time Others that I should suck it up or leave teaching that there are certain things I should not reflect on in my blog So the intention of the post was to capture my emotion in the moment I use this blog to record the successes and challenges of teaching for the purpose of reflection and feedback I strive to be a reflective practitioner I strive I need to step back and look at the context of reflection Since I began this blog about 3 years ago my audience has changed It began as an audience of 1 me and slowly grew to an audience of a few me and a few other teachers from other cities and countries and more recently to a much larger though still relatively small audience of readers teachers and non teachers including students parents and colleagues Does this mean I will stop writing about difficult issues No Not at all But I will do so with a sensitivity for a shifting audience There are times when my readers won t agree with what I say but my delivery needs to reflect the values that are dear to me kindness compassion and doing no harm Indeed love So I haven t been asked to remove this post or replace it in any way But when I reflect on it and the reactions it received within the shifting readership contexts that widening social networks provide blog writers it is the right thing to do When I reflect on it and my mission to do no harm it is the right thing to do Tracy The great thing about learning is that it never never stops Google Tracy Rosen 7 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Michael Doyle on November 26 2009 at 12 52 pm Uh oh Maybe quietly delete this before too much damage is done we ve all been there We d like to keep you in the classroom Michael Susan on November 26 2009 at 1 39 pm No we have all been there and we are occasionally allowed to be live humans with feelings Strong emotions teach lessons Breathe and continue on Tracy on November 28 2009 at 10 08 am I know we have all been there and I know I will be there again I won t delete it in fact some of my students have likely read this since it feeds onto facebook and those who haven t will hear about it when I see them again on Monday My colleagues convinced me to go home early on Thursday I was exhausted The drive to work is starting to wear me out 68 kms each way on top of a really demanding workload with some challenging students as are many students in classrooms
