this is my awesome video.

I showed this to two of my classes. They loved it.  I loved it too!

This is one of the best examples of why we need to allow students to follow their passions in schools, and why we need to bring back mentor-ship relationship in society and allow students to really learn with adults, not just sit in rooms and fill out worksheets or answer text book or teacher driven questions. I highly recommend this movie. Streaming on netflix now!

I remember that for all those five years of high school (way back when…), we all have to fill out these papers (with a bunch of questions) near the end of each year, discussing what our future plans are. Before graduation, we had to write in detail about our “five-year” and “ten-year” plans for after high school. These plans, specifically, were supposed to be sent to the local school-board office.

With all of that, yet not once did my homeroom teachers ask us what we would like to do and what our passions are. No face-to-face discussions; just paper after paper.

I think to show that it is okay to follow one’s own passions, teachers and adults should strike an authentic dialogue with children and youth. But from my experience, the teachers/professors who didn’t encourage me to pursue my passions are those who haven’t discovered their own.
