CRASH! The trip is over… not really, now the adventure begins!

“In not stating the goal to the students, they are like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.” – Lori Wildeman

And the end of the trip… make sure you have plans… goals… know where you were headed in the first place.
