The first part of this post is an idea borrowed from somewhere in the blogosphere.
I'd love to give credit to whoever it was that first used this idea - alas I can't remember and can't find it.
If it's someone in my PLN who then reads this, please let me know and I'll credit you.
Back over to fold the same line... again and again.
They 'got it'. The class was quiet. Only an unfortunate few really knew the experience and the feelings I was describing. Those kids were very quiet. The happy, popular, healthy, privileged many were empathising... with a piece of paper.
For the many who don't experience it, this quick experiment makes sense.
How can we know and what can we do to help someone who feels this damaged?
That's another blog post entirely!
