Block 10, 11, 12 Lesson Plan

  1. 1. BLOCK CH. 10, 11, 12<br />LESSON PLAN<br />FOR HIGH SCHOOL<br />(APPROPRIATE FOR ANY CLASSROOM)<br />Preferably given at the beginning of the term. <br />By Victoria Neil<br />
  2. 2. Questions- are they important?<br />“Questions are more transforming than answers.”<br />Do you feel that the above statement is true?<br />How have past teachers approached the subject of questions? When are they appropriate?<br />Have you ever felt dumb or belittled by someone for asking a question?<br />“Questions.. Confront them with their freedom, and invite them to cocreate a future possibility.”<br />Do you feel that these statements are true? What evidence have you seen?<br />
  3. 3. Transforming Conversation<br />Allow it to be REAL. If someone is having a bad day, that is valid. Block says: “It is more important to declare where you are at this point than to demonstrate optimism.”<br />Cut the ADVICE. “Trying to be helpful and giving advice are really ways to control others. Advice is a conversation stopper.”<br />How do you feel about these statements? Are they familiar to you, or brand new? Where have you heard them before?<br />
  4. 4. Three qualities of a Question<br />IT IS AMBIGUOUS. Do not attempt to precisely define what is meant by the question. Simply take it as it is. <br />IT IS PERSONAL. All passion, commitment, and connection grow out of what is personal. <br />IT EVOKES ANXIETY. All that matters to us makes us anxious. If there is no EDGE to the question, there is no POWER. <br />
  5. 5. Things to Ponder:<br />“Genuine invitation changes our relationship with others, for we come to them as equal. I must be willing to take no for an answer, without resorting to various forms of persuasion.”<br />Do you believe that most public school teachers behave this way? Do any?<br />“Cynicism gets justified by naming itself ‘reality’.”<br />How is this view held on a pedistal in our society today? How does the media affect this view?<br />
  6. 6. Videos<br />Everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten?<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxMgxzSr8pQ<br />Lego Questions<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq1DHit4WLQ<br />Examples of transforming Questions:<br />http://www.tcrecord.org/Content.asp?ContentID=14487<br />
  7. 7. ANY QUESTIONS??????<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />?<br />
