 When a student finishes her schooling and enters the adult world, she will judged for the rest of her life by two things: the quality of her character and the quality of her work. In spite of this, schools—even very good schools—feel the pressures of coverage and testing and can spend very little time compelling and supporting students to do exemplary work. What would it look like if students saw their mission at school as creating beautiful work? This is a hands-on workshop in which we will discuss and examine beautiful student work across subjects and grade levels, examine the classrooms that work came from, and discuss the conditions that make that work possible.
