(These Barnacle Goose goslings trusted their cape and made the leap.)
Rappelling isn’t the right word for it,
but I do take risks
& reap the unseen opportunities that open up as a result.
Some of my key teaching strategies are ones that evolved
as I experimented with inklings (pun intended)
based on my own literacy practices
but not already codified in traditional lesson plans.
Are they in the same league as the risk taken by the goslings?
No, but often they felt like I was rappelling.
The the adults can only wait at the scree where food awaits the bouncing tumblers.
