Critical Contract vs Hopes and Dreams

In chapter 5 of Teaching Children to Care they talk about the Critical Contract that is built with the teacher, students and the parents. How is a Critical Contract different than Hopes and Dreams?

I'm not exactly sure. I was thinking about even e-mailing or calling to ask. I don't see any real differences between the two. I just did hopes and dreams last year and we all wrote (students, parents, me) our hopes and dreams too.

As far as first grade timelines (in my case), First Six Weeks suggests starting hopes and dreams the first week and then in Teaching Children to Care it says they should complete them by the end of October. Perhaps you do the activity once and then revisit them in October?

I just finished Teaching Children to Care and loved it, but I do have a few questions and this was one of them. I was wondering if they are the same thing and it used to ba called critical contract, but over the years it has changed to Hopes and Dreams because that sounds nicer and it plays into the whole goal setting push that seems to be taking schools by storm.
If you find anything out please share, I am very curious as I plan on attempting some RC elements for the first time.
