Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 21

“My philosophy of education is the basic principle upon which my life has been built – that is the three-fold training of head, hand, heart. I believe in a rounded education with a belief in the dignity and refinement of labor – in doing well whatever task is assigned to me. A belief in a spiritual undergirting [sic] of all my efforts and a clear, sane mental development.” 
~Mary McLeod Bethune, (1875-1955)

“The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community. The aftermath of nonviolence is redemption. The aftermath of nonviolence is reconciliation. The aftermath of violence is emptiness and bitterness.”
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Birth of a Nation speech, 1957.

“The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, so that when the battle’s over, a new relationship comes into being between the oppressed and the oppressor. …“The way of acquiescence leads to moral and spiritual suicide. The way of violence leads to bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers. But, the way of non-violence leads to redemption and the creation of the beloved community.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,1959, Palm Sunday Sermon on Mohandas K. Gandhi

[Instructional, Transformational] Coaching is an embedded support that attempts to respond to student and teacher needs in ongoing, consistent, dedicated ways. The likelihood of using new learning and sharing responsibility rises when colleagues, guided by a coach, work together and hold each other accountable for improvied teaching and learning.” ~Elena Aguilar, The Art of Coaching. p. 9.

“Knowing students means more than merely acquiring social or administrative information—students’ names and ages, something about their friendship circles, a bit about their family backgrounds, a few statistics from their academic record. To maximize learning, we need to dig deeper than this superficial acquaintance.”  ~William Powell & Ochan Kusuma~Powell

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there ‘is’ such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action. Procrastination is still the thief of time.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ October 1, 2021

On the importance of connecting STEAM units to thinking inside the box…

The Arts 2

“In working with such a variety of schools, teachers, and students, as well as buildings, schedules, and budgets, the common and most important element in every situation was the dedication and determination of the staff to make STEAM succeed. This is where thinking inside the box was very useful. Teachers always have limitations with regard to, well, everything: budgets, schedules, space, and so on. STEAM not only encourages but also thrives on big ideas. By having to work inside the box, teachers developed incredibly creative solutions to most problems. In spite of the greatly varying accessobility to resources and staff time limitations, all schools were very successful in implementing STEAM.” ~David Sousa and Tom Pilecki, From STEM to STEAM: Brain Compatible Strategies and Lessons That Integrate the Arts, page 63.

Week 3: Thursday Thoughts ~ Quotes from Educators about STEAM Ideas! 

On the importance of epistemological pluralism in students’ representational artifacts of learning…

The Arts 2

 

“Making room for students’ cultural practices in standard education to important dilemmas for educators: How do they balance their students’ freedom and creative expression with academic constraints such as testing?  Researchers (Archer, et al., 2015) are studying the ways that students bring their knowledge, aptitude, skills, and experiences, or capital, into learning settings. For students from groups underrepresented in STEAM, the gap between knowledge and skills is wider than with other groups (Allina 2018). This is a problem that educators are working to solve through culturally relevant teaching and with tools and methods that connect students to where they come from in order to develop more effective ways to support their engagement in STEAM” (Gaskins, 2021, p. 4).
