Ka'ai! Such a cool blog! It's super visual (eye-catching) and short but straight to the point. Did you use photoshop or something? Very cool :) Anyways.. I like how you presented advice and allow teachers to think about what's important, our kids views, not so much our views when it comes to their education. I especially like the quote, "I don't get to define place for anyone else", this goes with what I think about sense of place. Everybody has their own definition and their own take of it but and it's our job to be aware of that. Have a great break!
Aloha e Tessie!
I'm very glad you liked my blog post. I was trying to make it different and interesting, yet provide good information all at the same time. I used this great website called Piktochart, you should try it (:
Many of the quotes that I used came from the powerpoint that Tara (our professor) gave us. It's definitely our job as educators to be aware of everyone's own definition of place. Hope you have a great break too!
Love the pics that were chosen to highlight your reflection. I can tell that you have been contemplating, "what is sense of place?". I can tell the more we explore this concept, the more questions will be sparked within you.
Mahalo Nui e Shari!
Beautiful Kaai! My two favorites are "I don't get to define sense of place for anyone else" our job is to "figure out ways of how we can add new perspective to what they already believe." Well said! This is such an accurate representation of what our kumu are doing for us right now. Thank you for sharing!
