Brief Description / Mission Statement / Transcendent Purpose
Creativity is the least important consideration in K12 Department of Education curriculum
but the most important attribute of the United States. ~ Karen Ellis
CREATIVITY AND #STEAM PROJECTS
#STEM - SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGLISH, MATH
#STEAM - SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY ENGLISH, MATH, + ARTS
FYI: Heritage Studies is a new movement in academe that blends scholarship from folklore, anthropology, history, literary/cultural studies, museum studies, and other disciplines into an interdisciplinary field. This new approach focuses less on heritage as an element of the past and more on heritage's relation to the present.
We will review, select, and publish announcements for Interdisciplinary #STEAM projects engaged in multiple sectors of K12 education and aspects of the following topics on the appropriate Projects page.
Transdisciplinarity means the future doesn't fit into a single discipline.

LITERACY, SPEECH, PLAY AND MUSIC "Music is Language, Language is Music" ~ Karen Ellis
Interdisciplinary Social Rhythm Researchers
Edward T. Hall Hid in an abandoned car and filmed children romping in a school playground at lunch hour. Screaming, laughing, running and jumping, each seemed superficially to be doing his or her own thing. But careful analysis revealed that the group was moving to a unified rhythm. One little girl, far more active than the rest, covered the entire schoolyard in her play. Hall and his student realized that without knowing it, she was "the director" and "the orchestrator."
YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE THEM THE GINIKER !!
Definition of Giniker: means plenty of pep and fire
BECAUSE THE SECRET TO LEARNING IS MOTIVATION!
Learning is a more important goal than grades.
For parents to emphasize how brilliant or talented a student is may be misguided, it develops the wrong mind-set - better to praise hard work and effort.
Children with a growth mind-set were more likely to outperform more intelligent students.
Where are the Folklore / Folklife Leadership projects that help
K12 Student Walkouts Protesting Gun Control Law?
TAKE SOME LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM THE DANCING GUY
IF THE LEADER IS THE FLINT THE GINIKER: IS THE LIGHTENING BOLT
THE FIRST FOLLOWER IS THE SPARK THAT PROVIDES THE HEAT WHICH IS "JAZZ"
The 2nd follower is a turning point:
That is the proof that the first one has done well.
Now it's not a lone nut, it's two nuts and that brings the third person and so on and so on .....
Now you have a movement!
"Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your ALTITUDE."
Encouragement which focuses on effort rather then intelligence
and talent helps make them into high achievers in school and in life.
