I am ill today so my creativity and mental capacities are being quite challenged just continuing to breath and stay awake, so I am using Robin's post format to provide some structure to my ramblings. [bowing to Robin Ellis]
I saw Robin Ellis' blog post and was moved to continue to build this "Passion Quilt" so here is my contribution. The title I have given this picture is "Admire the Night." I have chosen this photograph of a fireworks show which I find amazing because both man and nature and competing for the beauty of the night while others are observing the contest. This image reflects my belief of the power and passion that lifetime learning can make on anyone's life. You have the dichotomy of the power of nature (or natural talent) and creation as well as all of the observers (learners) of both processes. My hope is the inspiration that student creativity builds will be leveraged by others to help them continuously expand their natural talents. With hope anything is possible even challenging nature itself.
Here are Robin's rules:
- Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.
- Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about…and give your picture a short title.
- Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt” and link back to this blog entry and Robin's.
- Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.
