Your Own Hero's Journey - normalizing the cycle of learning
Joseph Campbell's monomyth of the Hero's Journey maps easily onto the annual cycle of growth, struggle, crisis, and opportunity faced by every teacher and student in every classroom.
Thinking about how the role of the teacher changes in an inquiry setting.
"it is more like ‘letting out’ as one does a kite string. Sometimes this is gradual, sometimes this is immediate but for learners to take a true inquiry stance to their learning, teachers need to release power and allow them to explore, figure out and make meaning. Not by themselves, but for themselves." from another post by the author.

"Teachers need to inject a little uncertainty into their lessons every day because it engages students at the "analysis and above" levels. It forces the students to evaluate what they know and what they do not know and make a decision about what to do about it."
