Connect the Dots

I read a quote from Seth Godin, asking, “Are we teaching our children to collect the dots or connect the dots?”

It’s a good question, a fair question, one that must be asked. More importantly, it’s one that must be answered.

See, I like to collect dots. And I am a firm believer that people need to collect dots.

But even more, I love to connect dots. I love helping people connect dots.

For example, I thoroughly enjoy helping kids write well. In writing, the goal is to connect the dots. The last sentence ends with a dot. The next sentence continues until it hits a dot. In between, you connect some words together, and you’ll make a sentence. Connect sentences together, and you’ll have a paragraph. Connect enough paragraphs, and you’ll have a chapter. Connect enough chapters, and what do you know? You’ll produce a book.

Books connect dots.

Teachers connect dots.

Books and teachers help students…

Connect the dots.
