Feeling Learning Deeply

When was the last time that you learned something that was soul-filling? Do you remember how it felt? Do you remember the smallest of details in a way that you don't normally do? Did it bring a smile? Did it leave you wanting more? I wonder when the last time that our students have learned at this deep level. I wonder when the last time that experience happened at school for them. Is it too much to ask to strive for moments of soul-filling learning? Are we just in a place when the demands are too great and the time is too short for moments like this to happen in classrooms? Soulful learning feels so good and has such a lasting impact on our desire to learn more. I hope that we haven't given these moments away to chance or luck. I hope that our kids hope for these moments to happen with us each day.
