“We have to change the negative things into positive…

The following is a quote from the talented Movie Director, Takashi Miike , and as I read it, I can’t stop thinking that the sentiment applies to how I feel about F.E and Level 1 programmes.

So here is the quote:

“We have to change the negative things into positive. In today’s Japanese film industry we always say we don’t have enough budget, that people don’t go to see the films. But we can think of it in a positive way, meaning that if audiences don’t go to the cinema we can make any movie we want. After all, no matter what kind of movie you make it’s never a hit, so we can make a really bold, daring movie. There are many talented actors and crew, but many Japanese movies aren’t interesting. Many films are made with the image of what a Japanese film should be like. Some films venture outside those expectations a little bit, but I feel we should break them.”

And here is my bastardisation/ adaption:

“We have to change the negative things into positive. In today’s Educational environment we always say we don’t have enough budget, that there isn’t enough support for what you do in class. We can think of it in a positive way, meaning that with the freedom offered with Programmes of Study we can have any class we want. After all no matter what you do it’s unlikely to gain public acclaim, so you can make a really bold, daring Scheme of Work. There are many talented students and teachers, but many classes aren’t interesting. Many lessons are planned with an idea of what a lesson should be like. Some PoS venture outside those expectations a little but, but I feel we should break them.”
