Shawn White blogs infrequently (none of his posts is dated, which bothers my sense of order) but a recent post on a learner's narrative project he is contemplating caught my eye. "I would like to have students recount the narrative of their educational experience," he writes, "focusing on who they have been and currently are as a learner, and even as a person, an educational autobiography of sorts... The idea of narrative therapy is to, through essentially a self-fulfilling prophecy-type manner, begin to redefine the narrative in better terms, focusing on strengths, on successes, on the times when things did 'work', on the times that felt right." Tghis would be a useful preoject; my hope is that this post will encourage him to carry out this plan.
