Hitting the windshield
Gently falling from the sky
As my travel path shifts
No center line
No edge of the road
Like darts pelting the windshield
Visibility nearing zero
Creating a false sense of security
A semi passes
Swirling the snow
Total white out
Wondering where and
when this weather will break
Dim lights? Bright lights? Of course it depends! If you are driving into the snow, dim lights are often more effective. A lack of a center line removes vision, safety and security.
How to Avoid a “white out” in your classroom:
Reflect: During this last week before the winter holidays, what is your perspective?
Will you be forging ahead with bright lights shining as you head straight into the heart of the action?
Or will you dim the lights, pause, observe, collect some field notes and then “ACT” on that data?
