Together we can continue to revise resistance
Robert Twigger has a great book about learning called "Micromastery"
I am trying to figure out what the entry trick is for this discipline called "teen activism". This is some of what I am seeing, but these are not really entry tricks so much as abstractions.
1.peer audience? 2.finding student capacity? 3.enlarging the field of possibility? 4.teaching for social justice? 5.navigate and negotiate with students? 6.research tools? 7.create media?
Not being critical here, but I am looking for the entry level trick to get my students into activism much like Twigger explains here with cooking eggs as an entry trick into the discipline of cooking.
Is this too big an ask?

a pedagogy of small
I love this phrase. I am reminded of Robert Twigger's splendid book Micromastery. The subtitle to his book is "learn small, learn fast", i.e. pedagogies of small.
That takes me in a natural way to Buckminster Fullers metaphor of the "trim tab". Ho loved that idea so much, he put it on his grave stone.
Let's find the trim tabs, the micromasteries, the small pedagogies that might work as we learn together. That is the kind of we-search I can support. Wholly.
