today at CSS

The 7th, 8th and 9th grade students, and I are making a big wooden box for our school recycling. So we spent the morning sawing and hammering, first the sides and then the hinged front of the box. We will finish during wood shop time next week.

My week continues to be disrupted (only slightly) by not having the van to transport kids to and from the wood shop. So I am taking advantage of the disruption by working in the playground at school. The weather has been sublime. In the meantime, if you want to know more about disruptive learning, check out this book, Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns by Christensen, Johnson and Horn. It seems to take a rather technological view toward innovation and creative disruption, rather than an interpersonal one as followed at Clear Spring School, but it might help in examining the concept. It is one of several books by Christenson on his theory of Disruptive Innovation.
