“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”
--Ryunosuke Satoro

One drop, then another
We can become an ocean
Changing learning

Second drop (first drop)
Give students choice

From Mr. Chase, a narrative on learning that ended:

The progress came when I remembered what I believe to be true:

  1. Give kids choices.
And from Max Fisher who also shares strategies for providing choice to students:
Choice gives them a sense of empowerment over their learning environment. Choice helps keep them engaged.
And from Anna
No matter who comprises our student populations, I am learning that providing choice to those students is crucial. Without the chance to make choices, and the skills and resources that help inform those choices, none of us would have much room to grow.
One drop to improve education-- provide choice for all our students-- beginning with little ones, small choices, larger choices -- opportunities to make decisions--


If we each begin with this one drop, imagine the ocean--
Imagine changing learning with this one drop--
