Subject: Are you growing a leader?
Date: January 21st 2015
Hello, Parents. A lot of what we do in PLTW revolves around the central idea that we need to do more than just educate the mind, but the heart as well. As Dr. King said so well, "Education with Character-that is the true goal of education." We couldn't agree more! That said, I would encourage you to take a few moments and check out this blog post from Dr. Tim Elmore, founder of Growing Leaders. A lot of our ideas and materials come from Tim's proven approach to developing young minds and hearts and preparing them for the world they will live in and hopefully influence for the best. Here is the link to Rebelling Against Low Expectations. Enjoy!
This week, we are continuing looking at careers in engineering/biomed, etc. with our students and encouraging them to take the "long view" when it comes to their education and goals. Be sure to ask about what they are learning at home and encourage further conversation around this topic. In a few weeks we will have some guest engineers come in and speak with our PLTW classes to give them a view from the inside of the profession.
Until next time. Have a great week!
Jason R. Williams
