Our ‘Education in 8 Movements’ (Integrated English-History) class studied “Enrichment” as a post-secondary learning option. We examined how motivation, interest and personalized skills really help contribute to an individual success.
While studying how we learn, our class took an edutopia.org survey that revealed I’m primarily a visual learner. I’ve enjoyed learning in this manner.
My classmates and I studied Sir Ken Robinson’s The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything. In striving to live a passionate and purposeful life, I’ve reflected on some things that I love to do, and things that I’m really good at.
Of course, I also love to read. Here’s a recording of me reading my favorite poem from one of my favorite books: The Outsiders, By S.E. Hinton
Poem is called Nothing gold can stay By: Robert Frost
Reading has enriched my life!
