Matters of Consequence

Matters of Consequence | Leaves | Scoop.it

If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with a geranium in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get any idea of that house at all." 

 

This blog so beautifully illustrates our battle as teachers and simply explores the dichotomy we face each day using one of the most effective weapons known to mankind, the power of story.
