Weekend Ed Quote ~ September 26

Helping students troubleshoot their errors like this should be a primary role of every teacher. There’s nothing to troubleshoot, though, if kids never run into trouble. Lesson planning should thus be more about anticipating students’ errors and preparing to help them learn from those errors than trying to develop presentations that prevent all errors. Provide students activities that involve applying information, and be ready to help them when they get tripped up.~David Ginsberg, in this post

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ September 12

[The] invisible residue of old memories helps a person remember that same material again more quickly than before.
~Dr. Dan Willingham, a cognitive scientist at the University of Virginia, in a recent article in The Atlantic magazine

 

Katherine Rawson and John Dunlosky have called this practice“successive relearning. ”The thing that makes memories of what we’ve learned “indelible,” Willingham writes, is returning to that material again and again, writes Annie Murphy Paul in this article.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 12

“There is, I think, no point in the philosophy of progressive education which is sounder than its emphasis upon the importance of the participation of the learner in the formation of the purposes which direct his [sic] activities in the learning process, just as there is no defect in traditional education greater than its failure to secure the active cooperation of the pupil in construction of the purposes involved in his studying” ~John Dewey

Weekend Ed. Quotes ~ June 20

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.

No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.

Asked once if he would have done things differently if he could live life over, he replied with characteristic candour: “All I can say is, I did my best. This was the job I undertook, I did my best, and I could not have done more in the circumstances. What people think of it, I have to leave to them. It is of no great consequence.
What is of consequence is I did my best. ~Lee Kuan Yew
