If You Can Envision It, You Can Create It
By Joan Richardson
Sharing the vision begins by including many voices in creating the vision.
Stretching to Create a vision
This activity highlights the importance of visions that can stretch and challenge us. It helps us realize that we can usually do a lot
more than we think we can.
Clarifying the vision
Some participants will find the star very easily. Others will not. Some will have difficulty even when the star is outlined.
Four corners to a vision
This activity aims at getting underneath what participants say about learning. This is not a consensus-building activity. Instead, this activity provides a provocative way to get participants to think about their strongly held beliefs, articulate those beliefs, and discuss them.
