Could you relate to Don's story about giving his students freedom to decide what to study, but a majority of the students not knowing what to do? I think I would have been one of the students asking for a topic and research paper in high school. Have you given your students opportunities to have some freedom in your classroom? What about opportunities for students to be leaders? Or what ideas do you have for doing this in the future? Do you think freedom and leadership for students in your classroom will lead to innovation?
If you know of others who would like to participate in the book club, it's not too late. Just remind them to start with week one so we all have a chance to meet them. For next week, please read the next chapter, "There Is No Plan."
