A great education should include creating an environment of amazing choices, rich literature, colorful experiences, conversations with diverse individuals and engaging learning activities from which students can choose. Help students find their passion. Expose them to art, music, sports, culture, history, and more. Allow them to problem solve through play and to use the learning elements as objects with which to tinker and learn. Love of learning and preparation for life does not happen in textbook chapters and learning modules. Rather it happens through relationships, exploration, creation and connections.
