The students in my class never cease to amaze me. Without question, they love to learn and to bring themselves into what they have learned. When given the opportunity, guidance, and the freedom to be who they are, the students thrive and truly bring their understanding of the world into the classroom while gaining even more understanding and expanding each other's, as well as my own. These students are ready to take off. All they need is a little help from us.
The Little Prince is, undeniably, one of the greatest stories ever written. It is read throughout the world by people of all ages and cultures, yet, every year, the majority of my students have never even heard of it. So, it is clear to me that it is my responsibility to open these students up to the wonder of The Little Prince -- a book that moves and teaches at every flip of the page. All I intend to do is read the book with them one chapter at a time over the course of one to two months. This will be how we start our class on a semi-daily basis. the intent is for this not to be an academic endeavor as much as a human endeavor. Hopefully, the students will feel the wonder of the story while learning about the magic of such a beautiful piece of literature.
