What if... every meeting has a prototype?

If a prototype is worth 1000 meetings… what if every school meeting started with discussion of a prototype?

What if the next department meeting were to begin with a prototype of a new assessment?

What if the next divisional meeting were to begin with a prototypes of a new approach to parent-teacher conferences?

What if the next student assembly were to begin with a prototype of a cafeteria redesign—created by students, for students?

How might this practice change your school’s culture?


Each Wednesday we share a "what if" scenario. These are not suggestions as much as provocations.

If you have a "what if" scenario you would like to share, just send an email (and indicate whether you would like it attributed it to you).
