Novelist Chimamanda Adichie warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding. This is definitely true. One person does not have all the right answers or all the wrong answers. The more perspectives, data and information we can compile, the more helpful and guiding that information will be. For example, I implemented a new game with my students (very similar to jeopardy) and just kind of winged it. My co-teacher and I discussed what we would change at the conclusion but we did not come up with half the great ideas that my students came up with. At the end of the lesson, I passed out a half sheet to each group and asked them to write at least one thing that went well and at least one thing that could improve it. They had brilliant ideas and had I not asked them and just went off my co-teacher and my ideas, it would not have been as effective for the next period and for the future. It is important to document and share your story because you can share your ideas with others, educate others on things you've discovered and receive feedback from others. Not one of us has the answers to everything so we don't need to act like we're our only resources to look to.
