“In my class, each child decides what it is they want to work on,” said teacher Chris Craft of South Carolina. “The goal is for each to figure out a problem they see in their lives, or their communities, or the world, and then figure out a way to make a difference.”

“The bottom line is that words do have power. They build up people and give them the mind-set that they can do it, but words can tear down people leaving them with the impression that they are nothing and never will be anything…Words can create hope or despair. Words can give birth to ideas and challenge people to great heights. Words can empower or enslave. Those of us who have chosen a life as educators must have a higer consciousness of our words. The school, via its agents…must be ever mindful of the power of words.” (Smith & Mack, 2006, p. 42-43)
