Ownership and Empathy through Experiential Learning
When children helped remodel their school, there was no longer a graffiti problem.
Perhaps it was because they were proud of their handiwork. Like the marker drawing of their family, or the clay pinchpot they carefully crafted. Perhaps it was because they had a new appreciation for the skill and energy required. Like a craftsman admires another's work. Either way, the children took positive ownership of their school because of their experience building it.
