Staying the course
Today there was another strong indication that Innovative Arts class is coming together. The vision hasn’t changed, it is still mostly projects, curiosity, autonomy, and simple resources. That vision wasn’t enough recently, but the addition of the popsicle stick and carboard construction projects have really changed the dynamics of the classroom.
Now, simple projects are being used as a part of larger, custom projects. Multiple attempts, tinkering, helping others, and an attitude of ‘I need more time’ stand in contrast with the apathy from the recent past. A lot of work is still ahead. What will it be like when we reach the next level yet?
