“Agendas had to be flexible, had to allow for spontaneous shifts in direction.”

“As a classroom community, our capacity to generate excitement is deeply affected by our interest in one another, in hearing one another's voices, in recognizing one another's presence. “

“Seeing the classroom always as a communal place enhances the likelihood of collective effort in creating and sustaining a learning community."
