Uplift Academy – Session 2

Session 2 – Creation Nation – Word Definitions

Students completed their pre-project surveys

Students were asked to write the word “Creation” on a large board

The class is asked to define Creation, and the student writes the definitions on the board – as many as the class can come up with.

Students were asked to write the word “Nation” on the large board

The class is asked to define Nation, and the student writes the definitions on the board.

Lastly students were asked to write “Creation Nation” on the large board

The class is asked to define Creation Nation – a borderless kingdom that welcomes all and encourages learners to become creators.

This process brought the students into the realm of Creation Nation and into an exercise in abstract thought.  What is Creation?  What is a Nation?  Can a nation without borders exist?   What does it mean to work together towards a common goal?  What do we have in common with people from different parts of the world?  Can this be the basis of a “nation”?
