As students move through the class with intention., they are presented with a "provocation" that will spark an idea, thought process, or feeling. The provocation is presented to each child individually and as we work our way presenting it to each student, the remainder of the class continues through their day expanding on the provocation through art, photography, discussions, and group projects. In addition to this, they have endless opportunities to break off and engage in other meaningful activities involving cooking, art, constructing, gardening, field studies, house-keeping and assisting those younger than themselves with various activities.
The individual is tended to quite a bit, but the community is rendered sacred.
Academic activities are presented in a manner which is tangible whenever possible. Children learn with hands more often than the ears. The formation of alpha-numeric characters with different materials such as sand, sticks and phonetically correct selections provides an enticing environment. The student is introduced to a learning style as opposed to a teaching style.
Our goal is to create classes (communities) of children who move through the school together, bond, learn to understand and respect each other and, most importantly, learn from each other. The elimination of ego and pride and selfishness is eventually accomplished, resulting in an individual who is highly valued in society...receptive, selfless, kind, peaceful and introspective, intentional and focused.
