YOUR EMERGING CURRICULUMYour emerging curriculum (your academic work) starts where you are with the knowledge you already have and it follows the natural brain process, the order of events might be different for different people. We suggest to start these events when you are relaxed and ready, you may benefit from writing down your reflections to questions/statements similar to:
- What brought you to Evergreen?
- Being in Evergreen, what brought you to the 2010-11 Ceremony program?
- Being In the Ceremony program:
1 - What do you want to learn? (content and goal)
2 - How are you going to learn it? (use multiple intelligences, Choice Theory, Pedagogy of the Oppressed)
3 - What do you plan to do with what you've learned? (the move from theory to practice, i.e., praxis)
4 - What difference will it make? (build in reflection and assessment, from which springs the next round of the four questions)
THE CEREMONY PROGRAM:
We are committed to taking advantage of all available instructional technology resources in Evergreen to become an environmentally friendly program and apply the most favored educational theories in Evergreen to build a community of free thinkers. One important task is to participate in the development of a Covenant that honors hospitality, recognition and respect to all participants. We make extensive use of our tools for learning.
