This is the result we are aiming for from applying the Pattern for Learning we are exploring:
"[Children] felt their own power, and the tediousness of the ordinary school-tone vanished like a ghost from my rooms. They wished--tried,--persevered,--succeeded: and they laughed.
"Their tone was not that of learners; it was the tone of unknown powers awakened from sleep; of a heart and mind exalted with the feeling of what these powers could and would lead them to do."
(from the writings of Pestalozzi)
