Chapter 1 May 2-May 8, 2010
Chapter 1 is called The Right to Be Reflective. On page 6 of the text the author says,
"Commitment to reflection means having more respect for that internal monologue, whether we call it thinking, meditating, contemplating, or day dreaming. It means abandoning our compulsion to feel dialed-up all the time. Giving ourselves opportunities to meander through the landscape of our own thought."
Think about how often you do this for yourself, both as a person/teacher/writer. Do you take time to just think/be/exist? What happens (or do you think would happen) during this time? Do you think this type of quite reflection is beneficial?
Do you encourage reflection with your students? Do you offer them quiet time to think? If not, what's preventing you? What are some roadblocks that must be overcome?
Were there any particular lines/paragraphs in this chapter that stood out to you that you'd like to share?
