I also have not "finalized" my project, but I think that I would like to create a manifesto. This is my 6th year teaching English at the high school level, and it amazes me how the students that I have now experience many of the things that I did as a student. The way I teach my students is a combination of my education and life experience, but a big piece of this is reaction/reflection to how I was taught in high school. Some teachers made class so interesting and some teachers made class torture...it seems that my learning happened because of my reaction to my teachers, not necessarily the content taught or the ability to learn, but more in the reaction. Today, I hear this type of thinking from my students; some teachers they are able to "learn" from, and some they are not. I would like to explore how education and life experience affect learning, but to somehow focus on the "how" you learn and not the "what" you learn.
