Asking Beautiful Questions: A reflection protocol to align mission with the stories we tell

Session 3
Mark Silberberg, Alex Ragone — Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin HS, City & Country School

The school mission drives in ways direct and subtle the stories that we tell within and beyond our school communities. We will leverage the collective wisdom of the participants in the workshop to explore current successes and challenges in realizing the promise embedded in each of our school’s missions. We’ll engage in active learning together using a design thinking approach as we ask "How might we" and "What if" questions to uncover new possibilities for better addressing emerging Educon themes in our schools and classrooms. Participants will receive focused feedback on a pressing issue that they identify and will give feedback to other participants about challenges that they are facing in their schools. Participants will leave with an actionable plan to address their mission-focused challenge. We hope that our shared thinking will create the beginnings of a professional learning community that can continue beyond the workshop conversation.

Conversational Practice

We will use design thinking activities to drive the workshop activities. Participants will be active throughout the workshop and not simply be passive listeners of a presentation. We want to create a space where participants can take a risk and explore new ideas to inform their work. Participants will work in small groups as they cycle through a "What if" consultancy protocol. Work produced in the consultancies will be posted and a gallery walk will allow all to view and offer additional feedback.

Sleep apnea is a very difficult thing to live with, both for the sufferer and for people living and sleep with him or her. If you fit into either of these categories, then you know just how frustrating it can be. Read through the tips found in this article to learn the best way to survive this problem!

If you suffer from sleep apnea, you should use a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine while sleeping. This will help you treat your sleep apnea and get you on the path to having a full nights sleep. This machine uses either a face or nasal mask to pump air while you sleep.

If you have just been diagnosed with sleep apnea and prescribed a CPAP, join a CPAP support group. It can be quite difficult to get used to sleeping with a mask on your face every night. Sitting in a room full of other people going through the same thing can be very empowering. You can learn from others who have had the same issues you are having and made adjustments to make it work.

Do not take sleeping pills if you suffer from sleep apnea. These pills are not recommended if you suffer from this condition because they relax the muscles of your throat. Skipping them can actually help you get a better night of sleep because your apnea symptoms are not aggravated.

If you tend to snore a lot and have difficulties staying asleep, you should go see your doctor right away. You might have a condition known as sleep apnea: find an effective treatment so you can get enough sleep and go through your daily activities without being held back by your health problem.

Check if a corrective device can help alleviate your sleep apnea symptoms. Having an overbite, an undersized jaw or a recessed chin can cause your airway to be more narrow because of how your jawbone is set. These devices help create proper alignment of your jaw while you sleep, opening up your airway more. As a result, you experience fewer sleep apnea symptoms.

An excellent way to help lessen the effects of sleep apnea is by losing weight. Sometimes, losing weight is all it takes to get rid of sleep apnea. Even a nominal amount of weight loss will go a long way in improving your breathing at night.

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it is important to avoid drinking alcohol. Alcoholic beverages will relax the muscles in your throat, which makes it more likely that they will block your airway during your sleep. At the very least, avoid any alcoholic beverages in the evening before you get ready for bed.

If simple changes in your lifestyle, such as regular sleep hours and losing weight, have not eliminated your sleep apnea episodes, it is time to consult with a sleep specialist. The specific causes of your sleep apnea can be evaluated, and an individual treatment plan can be designed for you.

Learning more about sleep apnea is important because knowledge can help put your mind at ease. Take the information you have learned in this article and talk to your doctor about it. He or she can then better help you more easily when you know more about this disorder yourself.
