Slowing down to Travel with a Tale…the plan
The end is near to this wonderful COETAIL experience. I am trying to put the finishing touches to my Video. I just published 2 more Travelling Tales ( that is 4 now ) when suddenly I realised I have not published my plan! Doh!
My plan was not set in stone last year as I had too many ideas. But when this academic year came round I had changed grade, changed jobs and didn’t really have a clue what my project was going to be.
Time was on my side. I slowed down. So that I could see what was happening in the classroom and give me some head space.
“Going nowhere, as Leonard Cohen would later emphasize for me, isn’t about turning your back on the world; it’s about stepping away now and then so that you can see the world more clearly ”Pico Iyer,
And I did. I saw the world in my classroom more clearly. A spark came my way.
Below is the UBD plan for Travelling Tales.It is between 6-8 weeks in length. I have included resources that I created to help teach the plan. This is written for K2 students in mind but I believe that the Unit could be adapted to teach other aged children.
