Experiential Day

Today, a colleague and I met with a group of middle schoolers to plan an experiential day. The mix of 7th and 8th graders wanted to create 40 minute sessions where the students would teach other students. Suggested instructional topics included martial arts, yo-yo-yoing, improv, and songwriting. Our half-hour lunch discussion was filled with enthusiasm around the idea of students taking the lead to share and teach about a personal passion. I went home today inspired by the energy of this potential endeavor. I love when students are engaged and motivated to take on leadership opportunities. We (I) need to listen to their voices more often.
