Creative Consciousness in the Classroom

Today I facilitated the first session of a 3 part professional development workshop series for the teachers at in Vidyaranya High School in Hyderabad. Creative Consciousness in the Classroom is the title for the series and the teachers exhibited just that. Through Drama, Poetry and Dance the educators personified their ideal classroom and designed projects to help bring their ideals into reality. The philosophy of this school is quite innovative(as I wrote in my post from last year, when I did a workshop here with the 8th graders).
"All that we can do is to see that the mind is conditioned and, through self-knowledge, to understand the process of our own thinking."
