"Stone Crazy": A space where intentional teachers and intentional learners meet
Paula Robinson and Claire Bartlett
The authors of this article had been exploring the notion of continuity for an individual learner, and this led them to also explore the notion of continuity within the bigger picture. They provide an example of what they call a centre storyline: an ongoing project that developed over an extended period of time and across a number of experiences. They called this storyline “Stone Crazy”. The article analyses this storyline in terms of the relationship between an intentional teacher and an intentional learner. An intentional teacher is one who is in tune with learners’ intentions and co-constructs curriculum with them. The authors discuss the intentional strategies used by one of the teachers, and two different versions of an “intentional learner” are described.
