Meme: Passion Quilt

This one's been circulating around the edublogosphere (Who would have thought we'd see the day when that was an semi-acceptable word in the English language?)...

THE RULES:

Post a picture or make/take/create your own that captures what YOU are most passionate for kids to learn about.

Give your picture a short title.

Title your blog post “Meme: Passion Quilt.”

Link back to this blog entry.

Include links to 5 (or more) folks in your professional learning network.

Yes We Can
More than anything I want to teach my kids a sense of possibility. I want them to understand that "the fierce urgency of now" is not just a phrase from history, but is a reality of the present. The fight for justice is alive today and it's not just about a larger movement, but about personal choices made everyday. I want them to believe completely in themselves and their ability to accomplish anything they set their minds to. Education is the means to this end, and I hope they will use it to pursue whatever path they choose.

Tagging I'm a Cohort 14 Teaching Fellow, Miss Profe, NYC Public School Blue, Frum Teacher and Polski3.

Ruben, "Yes We Can" is a great patch on the quilt.

You might want to tag some other folks...Frumteacher tagged me to start with, and I tagged Miss Profe and BK Teacher (Cohort 14)when I tagged you.

BTW, this is your blog...you don't have to post every comment.

Hugh directed me here. I am creating a "virtual" quilt from these blocks here. The image in the quilt will link back to your blog.

I like your contribution to the Passion Quilt Meme.

BTW: Another fellow blogger, Repairman, tagged me. But, thank you for thinking of me. When you get a minute, come on over to my blog and see what I put up for the Passion Quilt.
