To start the week out, students were introduced to the work of Phil Hansen. For those of you not in the know, he is an artist who gave an amazing TEDtalk in 2013 about creativity and "Embracing the Shake." I decided to share this artist and his story with my students for two reasons: 1. His work very much feeds into the theme of Identity, which is our current theme of exploration, and 2. He provides a message of overcoming doubt, fear, and failure to find your voice through your work.
It was fun to see and hear the reaction students had to his work and how we can apply his experiences to our classroom endeavors.
