This morning I finally had a discussion with my students about Martin Luther King, Jr. and we watched the speech. We did a lightening share during our morning meeting about our dreams. Most shared some personal dreams for their futures, such as becoming a doctor, or an architect, or a five-star chef. A few had more basic dreams, something decent for lunch today and such. One student had a bigger dream. He said, "I dream that people will care about what is under the ice, as opposed to only what is on top of it."
I'm not actually certain what he meant. And he is not a student I expected such a grand dream from. It made for a very interesting morning meeting.
