Be sure to read chpt 2 of TJEd for Teens for our discussion this week! Your team is counting on you!
This week's Inspirements:
Is everything you like a classic? Think of the music, movies, books, art, poems, literary works, etc, that you have read or seen. Would you consider these things classics? Or are they not necessarily classics, but just things you like? Really take a few minutes to think about what being a classic means, that is "worth returning to again and again" and that “you gain more from it each time?"
What sets a classic apart from the things we just like?
1. In your Truth Book, make two lists. Label one list "Classic" and label the other list "Just Enjoy." Think of the music, movies, books, art, poems, literary works, etc, that you have experienced and put them in one of those two categories. Try to come up with at least 10 things to put on your paper.
2. If you don’t have anything in your “classic” group start a treasure hunt for a classic you think you would enjoy. (Hint: there is a list at the end of chapter 2 of TJEd for Teens for some suggestions.)
1. Do the Apprentice Inspirements.
2. In your Truth Book, choose one of the things on your "Classic" list and record what made it a classic to you.
3. Find someone who has experienced one of your classics and discuss it with them. If you can’t find someone who has already experienced it, come up with way to get them EXCITED about experiencing it.
4. Identify at least one classic you have not experienced and find a way to access it and begin it.
1. Do the Apprentice and Journeyman Inspirements.
2. Print out and read this article. Mark it up: highlight, underline, write notes or questions in the margins, draw pictures or graphic over the text.
