"But it's a corruption to start giving people what they want in story.
Because the truth is, the audience is like a child. That's not to say that they're children, the audience is made up of a lot of different people.
Some of them smart, some of them stupid.
But if you ask them as a collective, 'What do you want?', they'll always say 'I want more of what I saw before that I liked."
- David Simon : The Wire, Generation Kill, Treme
How often do we as teachers focus on what we actually, truly honestly need?
For our students?
For our schools?
For our selves?
