“One should not pursue goals that are easily achieved. One must develop an instinct for what one can just barely achieve through one’s greatest efforts.” —Albert Einstein
This term we are undertaking a media project that has our students explore the theme “Make me Visible”. Working with students with disabilities I am always seeking ways to promote, challenge and extend their abilities rather than be judged, measured or held back with a deficit model.
As our project has evolved we have decided to explore the concept “See Me Not My Disability”. During my initial research to find some inspiring stories, I came across the following video, which I believe illustrates this “dream big” and encourages us to look for what CAN be achieved not what cannot.
