Initiative

Having read Seth’s Poke the Box I mentioned the word initiative to the class today.

Even the kids with the widest vocabularies did not know what it meant!

Here is an online meaning:

  1. the ability to assess and initiate things independently.
    “use your initiative, imagination, and common sense”
    synonyms: enterprise, inventiveness, resourcefulness, capability;

    And another from a good old book dictionary: the first step or action of a matter; commencing move, the ability or attitude required to begin or initiate something

    What did you initiate today?DSC_0665
