Watch before you read...
Adam Saenz’s TED Talk is moving. It’ll touch your heart, so don’t skip it. And for some of the neuroscience behind stories, listen to David Phillips’s TED Talk too.
This is our January issue and, though this is just the second, we have a tradition of doing something different with these anniversary issues. This month, we are giving you eleven stories by teachers about experiences that influenced their way of thinking and teaching. And here is some good news: we received sixteen stories, and we like all of them so much that we have decided to make a new feature in the Think Tanks, a monthly column of teacher stories!
Many of the stories here are about classroom experiences and what our contributors learned from them, but many others are on experiences our teachers had as learners themselves, and how their lives were changed as a result.
So, sit back, relax, and read these wonderful stories. With luck, we might get one from you as well.
