1 thought on “Field A1”

  1. Hmmm. With my adult learners, seeing the beauty in life is more compelling than to teens. They are based in caregiving and working. Talking small talk like the weather or the gardens or what their children are doing is the meat of their conversations in any language. I have been struggling with building “funny” stories around monster characters. It doesn’t sit respectfully with their time in my mind. But conversing about beauty does. That is compelling. That is high interest and doesn’t require cute answers just an appreciation of the beauty of life unfolding around us and the preciousness of recognizing it and sharing it with another.

    With youth seeing the beauty of life around them opens their eyes to looking for the good. It cuts down the anxiousness of their inner critic and bathes their brains in positivity. We all need those gratitude moments that come from seeing the brighter moments in dark times.

    When I was teaching during our community meetings that sharing of a beauty moment came as an appreciation or act of kindness and students shared those freely. We actually limited it to 3 a day and if others had them they could tell me later by writing them down. Then I posted those on a wall later. Might work with Zoom sessions and message walls.

    Wishing you all well,
    Kate
