Sometimes the lesson yo have planned is completely the wrong way to tackle a topic.

Sometimes doing the wrong way is the only way to shed light on the right way.

Sometimes we have to make mistakes in order to move forward.

I had this lesson planned that I thought was wonderful. I thought it would focus their questions about Exhibition onto the essential elements on the Who We Are theme. I thought they would begin to focus their ideas down into manageable pieces.

I was wrong.

It confused.

During the whole ordeal, I realized something, the missing element. I almost kicked myself. It is something that I have been focusing on the entire year.


What is your story? What do you want to tell? What is the purpose of your story?

From here, I feel like we have new life, and can begin afresh and start to tell our stories.
