This week’s weekend Ed. Quote was supplied by Cynthia who is one of the dedicated teachers in the PBS TeacherLine online learning course that I facilitate. The course is “Teaching with Primary Sources from the Library of Congress”
“Curriculums must become more thought-filled in the sense of enlarging students’ capacities to think deeply and creatively.”–Costa (2008)
Thank you Cynthia!
Costa, A.L. (2008, February). The thought-filled curriculum. Educational Leadership, 65(5), 44-46.
“Leadership is not about your title, it’s about your behavior.” ~ Robin Sharma
This quote is especially pertinent to me this month.
Treat all people with dignity, respect, and professionalism.
