This is what the Lorraine D. Foster Day School believes education should look like. It should be thought-provoking, connected to "big" questions which demand deep thinking and reflection.
We have an obligation as teachers to introduce our students to seminal questions. We need to help children understand the ultimate reality of inter-connectedness! This Ted Talk about forests can help us all to understand the profundity of that reality. If we can genuinely grasp this concept, we can generalize it to everything…every concept and every issue…personal, social and global. It represents the type of “learning” that gives us the opportunity to transform ourselves, our relationships, our communities and our planet. We could solve social problems, create peace and heal our collective souls by simply understanding that every living thing is inextricably connected.
