Common or UnCommon Ground

I have been reflecting on my last post – Expectancy Theory – and how that context would alter my approach to classroom management and curriculum development.  With such an immense difference in language, approach and outcomes, uncommon ground and lack of collaboration easily manifests itself within the classroom environment.

Rather than a focus on common ground we should celebrate uniqueness of each approach, create a bridge that develops common language that ultimately leads to new knowledge.

I believe the importance is to allow for co-existence of common and uncommon ground in order to create awareness of possible relationships across difference. This collaborative approach will not just evolve – outcomes need to be explicit in order to ensure clarity and focus for the classroom.
