Homework: We Dream the Future

March 5, 2012 14 comments

Your homework for the next three days is to interview as many different kinds of people as you can and ask them those two questions:

  • What is your dream or vision for the future?
  • What are YOU gonna DO to make it happen?

Capture the interviews on video and bring the video files into school so we can make our own “We Dream the Future” movie.

Hi 6SS,

These are some good quotes I found on wisdom:

-“Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill. Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.”
Laozi (Lao Tzu, Lao Tse, Lao Tsu)

-“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country… corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow.”
Abraham Lincoln

-“Intellect does not attain its full force unless it attacks power.”
-Madame de Stael

What do you think they mean?

Please tell me,
