At the beginning of my Spring Break, I found this from Simon Sinek (the Golden Circle guy). These are the rules of conduct he has for his company. Pretty awesome! I wonder if these should not be the words to encourage us through our PYP Exhibition journey? What do you think? I am going to post these outside our classroom – beside our ‘we can do hard things’ poster. I might also put one in my permanent view – I want to make sure that I am continually practicing what I preach and not being a source of contradiction within my own classroom.

I love this. I only wish this graphic had been entitled “You Are Encouraged To”… I guess I like encouraged better than allowed (must be the rebel in me 🙂
I’m surprised “Make mistakes” wasn’t at the end of the list, even if it was qualified. I suppose the first rule sort of encompasses mistakes. As for me and my own teaching, “Take chances, make mistakes, get messy, and look for connections” always works! I like your comment about your “We can do hard things” poster. Is it posted on your blog somewhere?
