“It feels like a miracle. The Lost Tools of Writing has my undying affection!”
“The CiRCE Apprenticeship has been a deeply formative experience . . . I have grown in my ability as a teacher and am learning how to truly love my students.”
by Joshua Gibbs
With a foreword by Karen Swallow Prior.
Presented at the CiRCE National Conference 2022.
Where can both teacher and student go to learn together? Where can both a teacher’s and a student’s vision for the good life be formed? Where can both a teacher and a student ask good questions? Remember, the quality of one’s life is determined by the quality of the questions one asks. Reading fairy tales teaches more than good stories, though those are important in and of themselves. Reading fairy tales teaches us how to be good neighbors, how to ask good questions, and how to see the good life. Since the teacher ought to be the first focus of classroom reform, this session will focus on the teacher, who sets the model for the students. Join Andrea Lipinski to experience a fairy tale; we will read and explore the forest of a fairy tale together.
