Members of a TeamPlayGround, like in the “real world,” learn how to accomplish goals, personally and collectively – to honor unity requires diversity. Unifying a classroom begins with each individually learning to Re-Cognize their own actions, Re-Thinking things through before acting. When kids start making conscious connections, a bigger picture emerges and understanding leads to acceptance of others who have a different perspective. If kids are to resolve a situation or solve a problem amongst a diverse group setting, they must first resolve issues and problems within themselves.

BELONGING is calling forth the highest purpose of education, the call to authenticity
—I AM THAT, I AM.
