Driving Question: "How does change occur?"
While reading about Metaphor Machines on the Project Exchange website, and the focus on change as an element within society and its impact on learning, I was reminded of one of my favorite films, HALF NELSON. Ryan Gosling plays a history teacher with some bad vices but still manages to be a good teacher (in the classroom, anyway). He spends much of his time teaching his class about history and the science of change. I thought you might enjoy this clip that I found. Check it out!
