I am to the point where I almost avoid the news, try not to read too much. I have a morning ritual, read worldwide newspages that I like, but try to keep it short and sweet lately. There is only so much bad stuff I can take on a daily base.
Throughout the day, when I log into my computer, there are always news headlines, mostly who is dating whom and who is getting separated -again. I never pay attention to it, try to focus on my computer quest instead.
Today however, there was a headline that did get my attention and I clicked on it. An elementary teacher in Denver, CO asked her third graders to finish the sentence
“I wish my teacher knew….”
The answers, mostly given anonymously, are eye-opening.
What an assignment! May it be copied by a lot of teachers. Knowing is the beginning of understanding.
