A wise person stood in front of a group of people with a large empty jar. BEGINNING WITH A PARABLE ! Wordlessly he started to fill it.
He used rocks about 2cm in diameter. He then asked the people if the jar was full? They agreed that it was.
So he then poured a box of pebbles into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. The people laughed.
He then took a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. “Now,” he said, “I want you to recognize that this is your life.”
“The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children – anything that is so important to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your vehicle. The sand is everything else. The small stuff.”
If you put the sand into the jar first, there is not enough room for all the pebbles and the rocks. The same goes for curriculum design. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important. CORE CONCEPTS Pay attention to the CORE CONCEPTS that are critical in the curriculum.
“To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you are going so that you better understand where you are now so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.” - Stephen Covey S even Habits of Highly Effective People THINK “BACKWARDS”
