Students Rising to the Unknown

Once in a while I get the pleasure of working deeply with students, asking the adults to sit back and watch how their students expand and rise to unbounded, untested, unknown mini-challenges.  That was the kind of day we had at the Shipley School last fall; here are just a few minutes out of our day. We merely gave students, grades 5-12, permission to wander, observe how learning takes place in their school, and then ask expansive questions to imagine deeper learning. I know the ripples are still spreading at Shipley as both students and adults found untapped sources of learning empowerment!
