2017-2018 Productivity and Responsibility Log


Are you a driver or a passenger? Are you the horse or the cart? Successful people are inspired and self-motivated. They do not wait around for others to tell them what to do next; they are perpetually engaged in seeking out opportunities to enhance their own passions and skill sets. Historically, schools have not been organized to cultivate individual student initiative. From the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, conformity and standardized syllabi have been the norm as they are tightly linked to institutional efficiency. Well, the world has moved beyond Ford's 'assembly line' mentality and responsible schools, like RSGC, are doing their best to adapt their practices accordingly to include incentivizing individual students' initiative.

In addition to my commitment to you as a class, I am also committed to each of you as individuals. I will continually update the table below over the course of the year as a reflection of my support for your personal growth within our Design and Engineering disciplines.
