I will value the curriculum that my student brings to school more than I value my curriculum.
I will uncover my student’s curriculum rather than unpack my own.
I will dedicate all of the time I share with my student to co-learning.
I will spend any time taken away from learning on conflict resolution rather than classroom discipline.
I will measure myself by how much learning we enjoy in our classroom, rather than by how much order other adults see in it.
I will learn to facilitate and value my student’s print and non-print learning, as well as my student’s virtual and physical learning.
I will protect my student’s flow.
I will help my students constructively challenge management practices that don’t help them learn.
I will make something from what I do and share it with others.
