“When you stand in the darkness, when you have lost all hope, when you can’t see any path to walk ahead, read; reading will act as the lantern to show you the path. It might not take you to the destination, but it will keep on guiding you towards a resolution.”

~Neelabh Pratap Singh, author Pi Agency

This week’s quote is about books, from within the pages of a book!

“…but I spend my pocket money in the secondhand bookshops. I love the dry, musty smell of the volumes, the tissue-thin feel of the paper. Even the typefaces speak of vanished elegance. Already the books are accumulating in my room, and nothing, I think, makes a place more like home.” ~Deborah Crombie, Dreaming of the Bones

Wondering: can this quote apply to eBooks?

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 10

“According to Purkey and Novak (2016), an invitational stance begins with teachers’ beliefs about students–that “people are able, valuable and responsible and should be treated accordingly” (p. 11). Another key belief would be that “people possess relatively boundless potential in all areas of worthwhile human endeavor” (p. 11). Inviting teachers communicate that they care about their students in every interaction with them. They demonstrate optimism when interacting with students, and they show respect to them while creating an atmosphere of trust in the classroom.

Purkey and Novak (2016) identified the 5 Ps of Invitational Education and used a starfish as a metaphor. Inviting educators (people) can focus on being invitational in the areas of places, policies, programs, and processes.” ~Jenny Edwards

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 3, 2020

“A Student is the most important person ever in this school…in person, on the telephone, or by mail.
A Student is not dependent on us…we are dependent on the Student.
A Student is not an interruption of our work..the Student’s the purpose of it. We are not doing a favor by serving the Student…the Student is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.
A Student is a person who brings us his or her desire to learn. It is our job to handle each Student in a manner which is beneficial to the Student and ourselves.”
~ William Purkey, Inviting School Success
