Bright Ideas and True Confessions: How and What to Do and Why


Teachers, and a Wish

I've known lots of teachers join the Society and become excellent seneschals, probably because classroom management techniques can work pretty well with the kids in the SCA, too. Teachers learn to handle and organize diverse groups of people, dealing with the full range of talent, ability and learning styles without breaking stride. In the Society we begin with an "everyone's equal" base (newcomers without rank) and procede swiftly to rank people by their relative worth and contributions to the Society. Of course it's not always equitable, but if noblesse oblige is practiced scrupulously, those with rank will be so gracious to those without that no one will feel left out. It's an ideal. We won't reach it, but we can aim for it.
