or or Creative thinkers… generate ideas and explore possibilities ask questions to extend their thinking connect own and others ideas and experiences in inventive ways question own and others assumptions try out alternatives or new solutions and follow ideas through adapt ideas as circumstances change Independent enquirers… identify questions to answer and problems to resolve explore issues, events or problems from different perspectives analyse and evaluate information, judging its relevance and value consider the influence of circumstances, beliefs and feelings on decisions and events support conclusions, using reasoned arguments and evidence
Two questions to think about… Is it better to be kind or truthful? Whats the difference? Have you ever considered yourself to be two-faced?
Once Upon a Time Once upon a time, son, They used to laugh with their hearts And laugh with their eyes: But now they only laugh with their teeth, Search behind my shadow. There was a time indeed They used to shake hands with their hearts: But thats gone, son. Now they shake hands without hearts While they left hands search My empty pockets. Feel at home! Come again: They say, and when I come Again and feel At home, once, twice, There will be no thrice – For then I fond doors shut on me. So I have learned many things, son. I have learned to wear many faces Like dresses – homeface, Officeface, streetface, hostface, Cocktailface, with all their conforming smiles Like a fixed portrait smile. And I have learned too To laugh with only my teeth And shake hands without my heart. I have also learned to say, goodbye, When I mean Good-riddance: To say Glad to meet you, Without being glad; and to say Its been Nice talking to you, after being bored. But believe me, son. I want to be what I used to be When I was like you. I want To unlearn all these muting things. Most of all, I want to relearn How to laugh, for my laugh in the mirror Shows only my teeth like a snakes bare Fangs! So show me, son, How to laugh; show me how I used to laugh and smile Once upon a time when I was like you. Gabriel Okara Ha
