On Monday I was invited to visit a fourth-grade “wax museum” which in itself is just the most awesome invitation you’ll ever get, but there was something beyond the incredible learning that came up during the visit.
In talking with the teachers they mentioned how next year they’re going to make sure to plan in such a way that they can reach out to all the living figures represented. We live in a small enough state that we can easy ask Senators, authors, and other figures to visit during an event like this. In fact, many were coming to this event and still, others were invited but weren’t sure about their availability. Watching students connect with the figure that they researched and to see the power in that interaction is something incredible and something we should definitely take advantage of whenever possible.
It doesn’t hurt to ask!?
