“We need a coat with two pockets…”

The Learning Coats Project was designed as a matching project for The Teaching Coats Project–a professional development activity for teachers.  The Teaching Coats Project was inspired by a beautiful quote in a book called The Courage to Teach, by Parker Palmer.  He writes: “I once heard this Hasidic tale: ‘We need a coat with two pockets. In one pocket there is dust, and in the other pocket there is gold. We need a coat with two pockets to remind us of who we are.’ Knowing, teaching, and learning under the grace of great things will come from teachers who own such a coat and who wear it to class every day.”
