Welcome, I am excited to have the opportunity to explore this amazing book with you. My intention was to devote the summer to reading and processing this book with you, my colleagues. However, as I slowly make may way through "A Mind at a Time" I have come to realize that this is not going to be a book that I can begin and end this summer.
As I began to read I realized this book is going to be a journey. A journey to help me better understand the students I serve. This book is going to be a very personal journey for me. Therefore, I will openly admit some of my posts may be tied to my own personal experiences. While my goal is not to air my own experience it is my goal is to connect with the material Mel Levine offers on a deeper level so I can use the information to make a positive change in the lives of the students we work with. What I have found is the way I connect with material is through powerful emotional experiences or massively overhauling the information to make it my own.
I plan to post questions/comments about every chapter of the book as I read through the book this summer and I would invite you to do the same.
Read at your leisure, post as the spirit moves you..
