System Thinking Design Approach

• Use System Thinking – Getting to your destination the optimum way using only needed resources. o Verbalize the process o Create the mathematical description of your design on hand – which is the mathematical model for your system o Proceed with the final implementation

• Use the power of thinking about your students as a team working towards a common goal. o Assess..Improve…Assess..Improve…Assess… o Create teams…and more teams as needed o Set up high standards o Get Students involved o Bring Joy In the Classroom o Create Healthy Learning Environment o Do Things that were Never Done Before o Make them leaders... true leaders with Love In Their Heart

Create resonance in and outside the classroom - a reservoir of positivism that frees the best in people.
