Working together to transition freshmen & transform schools from the bottom up!
Members of the FTN know that I strongly encourage teachers to use the story-centered ideas found in A Million Miles in a Thousand Years and Storyline by Donald Miller as a way to teach students to live lives of meaning and purpose. My friend, Mike Petty, has recently written a blog post on his blog about ways to do this.
Take a look at Mike's post. If you have questions about using the concept of story in your classroom - such as how do I make these ideas work in my classroom when they don't seem to connect directly to my content - send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), reply to this post, or shoot me a text (540-389-2610).

Here's a link to Mike's post with an idea for applying those ideas to the classroom: http://classroomgamesandtech.blogspot.com/2013/02/creativity-exerci...
