Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 31

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

~ Henry David Thoreau

“too slow, too big, pretty, and touchy-feely”  ~the 2007 description of the iPhone, Time Magazine’s Invention of the Year for 2007

“Isolation is the enemy of improvement.” ~Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap

 

This quote is a good add for your bulletin board, letter to parents, and/or course syllabi. It encourages and hints at the necessary collaborative focus of the learning that will occur in your classroom.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

~Winston Churchill

 

As we prepare for the start of the school year, perhaps this quote would be good to include.
