Grace and Courtesy in the Elementary Community
Huneke-Stone, Elise
NAMTA Journal, v40 n1 p83-100 Win 2015
Don't be fooled by Elise Huneke-Stone's disarming beginning where she implies that grace and courtesy is not normally associated with the elementary. She goes on to elaborate that grace and courtesy is indeed everywhere: in project-based learning, understanding of moral precepts, social and intellectual independence, in the utilization of empathy, used in the unfolding of the reasoning mind and imagination, and in matters of justice and fairness. Integral to the gregariousness and the rules of group work, the elementary child needs grace and courtesy to manage their strong social orientation as children of the second plane. [This talk was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "Grace, Courtesy,and Civility Across the Planes," Portland, OR, March 13-16, 2014.]
