Weekend Ed. Quote ~ June 22

“Let’s remake the world with words.
Not frivolously, nor
To hide from what we fear,
But with a purpose.
Let’s,
As Wordsworth said, remove
‘The dust of custom’ so things
Shine again, each object arrayed
In its robe of original light.” ~ Gregory Orr

“When we intentionally respond to the diverse needs of our students, we are differentiating the product, process or content of learning according to the learning style, interest or readiness of our students. A wealth of research suggests that by framing learning with student interests in mind, teachers can increase student motivation and learning” (National Council of Teachers for English, 2015)

“Learning with technology does not happen because a specific tool “revolutionizes” education. It happens when proven teaching strategies intersect with technology tools, and yet it is not uncommon for teachers to use a tool because it is “fun” or because the developer promises it will help students learn.” ~Learning First, Technology Second: The Educators’Guide to Designing Authentic Lessons by Liz Kolb
