The prompt supplied for the LYL challenge is the title of the post. I’m surprised nothing is jumping out at me. But, I do have some things that upset me. A good place to start would be listing those.
- Watching people not try
- Not trying my best
- People blindly accepting things
- People hurting others for entertainment
- The school system and its regimented standards
- How we fail to use the creativity of students
I’m beginning to understand more about myself. There are some things that annoy me that are within my control. How I act and how my classroom operates is within my control. Those should be my focus.
A key thought that continues to run through my mind is how I don’t know what my goals are. I am complaining about not giving my best, yet I couldn’t tell you what giving my best looks like. Moreover, I want to use the creativity of the students to help solve problems within the community, yet I don’t know what that would look like either! Knowing what to focus on is also an issue, for I know the future will never be exactly what I envision. How much detail is enough detail?
