  1. Fantastic! In the teacher world where you are constantly counting minutes to the bell to make sure you “get it all done” the idea of slowing down and SAVORING really resonates. Plus slowing it down( Linda Li style) makes for better CI =) Thanks for posting this!

  2. Kate I LOVE your response. Please respond more often!
    Brian quoted Pirsig saying,”I don’t want to hurry it.” Amen, brother. That is my mantra. It’s all about wait time. throw a question out and wait for a response–even if they start to get uncomfortable. We are not a TV program. We need not fear dead air. We are live and we are better than programming. Let’s take our time and see what unfolds when our kids actually get it.

  3. My second period class was basically dead last week. It was the first full week of school and they were tired, so they didn’t want to respond. On Tuesday I asked a question and got zero response. (I know they knew the question, it was “How are you?” in German, and they all were answering it last year.) So I just stood there and waited . . . and waited . . . and waited. Finally they decided it was less uncomfortable to answer, so we were able to continue class.
    I am so glad that past discussions have given me the confidence to let there be silence.
