Two activities that influence the climate for learning
Quotations for positive pedagogy
Students learn what they care about from people they care about
and who, they know, care about them.
Barbara Harrell Carson
Where there is no learning, there is no teaching.
Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and
I like to learn, but I don’t like to be taught.
A mind is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled.
The most important knowledge teachers need to do good work
is a knowledge of how students are experiencing learning and
perceiving their teacher's actions.
Learning is a social process that occurs through interpersonal interaction
within a cooperative context. Individuals, working together, construct
shared understandings and knowledge.
Since there is no single set of abilities running throughout human nature,
there is no single curriculum which all should undergo. Rather, the schools
should teach everything that anyone is interested in learning.
My contention is that creativity is as important as literacy in education,
and we should treat it with the same status.
Sir Ken Robinson
We teach what we like to learn and the reason many people go into teaching
is vicariously to experience again the primary joy experienced the first time
they learned something they loved.
