    Quotes on

    Quotes on
    Being a Teacher




    Setting an example is not the main
    means of influencing another, it is
    the only means
    Albert Einstein






    It is the mission of the pedagogue, not to make his pupils think, but to make them think right, and the more nearly his own mind pulsates with the great ebbs and flows of popular delusion and emotion, the more admirably he performs his function. He may be an ass, but that is surely no demerit in a man paid to make asses ofhis customers
    H.L. Mencken









    No man can be a good teacher unless he has feelings of warm affection toward his pupils and a genuine desire to impart to them what he himself
    believes to be of value
    Bertrand Russell






    If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job
    Donald D. Quinn

    Quotes
    On Learning




    What is learning

    In its broadest sense, learning can be defined as a process of progressive change from ignorance to knowledge, from inability to competence, and from indifference to understanding....In much the same manner, instruction-or education-can be defined as the means by which we systematize the situations, conditions, tasks materials, and opportunities by which learners acquire new or different ways
    of thinking, feeling, and doing
    Cameron Fincher, "Learning Theory and Research," in Teaching and Learning in the College Classroom, edited by Kenneth A. Feldman and Michael Paulson, Ashe Reader Series, Needham, MA: Ginn Press, 1994






    Most models [of learning] assume that the purpose of learning is to incorporate new information or skills into the learner's existing knowledge structure and to make that knowledge accessible. . . . Learning begins with the need for some motivation, an intention to learn. The learner must then concentrate attention on the important aspects of what is to be learned and differentiate them from noise in the environment. While those important aspects are being identified, the learner accesses the prior knowledge that already exists in memory, because a key to learning is connecting what is known to what is being learned. New information must be processed, structured, and connected in such a way as to be accessible in the future; this process is known as encoding. The deeper the processing of the information in terms of its underlying organization, the better the learning and later retrieval of that information. This processing requires active involvement . The learner must verify an understanding of the structure by receiving feedback, from the internal and external environments, on the encoding choices made

    Marilla Svinicki, Anastasia Hagen and Debra Meyer, "How Research on Learning Strengthens Instruction," in Teaching on Solid Ground, Robert Menges and Maryellen Weimer, Jossey-Bass, 1996









    Learning is a social process that occurs through interpersonal interaction within a cooperative context. Individuals, working together, construct shared understandings and knowledge

    David Johnson, Roger Johnson and Karl Smith, Active Learning: Cooperation in the College Classroom, Edina, MN: Interaction Book Co., 1991







    Where I grew up, learning was a collective activity. But when I got to school and tried to share learning with other students that was called cheating. The curriculum sent the clear message to me that learning was a highly individualistic, almost secretive, endeavor. My working class experience . . . was disparaged

    Henry A Giroux, Border Crossings, NY: Routledge, 1992








    There is no difference between living and learning . . . it is impossible and misleading and harmful to think of them as being separate. Teaching is human communication and like all communication, elusive and difficult...we must be wary of the feeling that we know what we are doing in class. When we are most sure of what we are doing, we may be closest to being a bore

    John Holt, What Do I Do Monday? NY: Dutton, 1970






    Education is the acquisition of the art of the utilization of knowledge. This an art very difficult to impart. We must beware of what I will call "inert ideas" that is to say, ideas that are merely received into the mind without being utilized or tested or thrown into fresh combinations

    Alfred North Whitehead, Aims of Education and other Essays, NY: MacMillan, 1924








    I entered the classroom with the conviction that it was crucial for me and every other student to be an active participant, not a passive consumer...[a conception of] education as the practice of freedom.... education that connects the will to know with the will to become. Learning is a place where paradise can be created

    Bell Hooks, Teaching to Transgress, NY: Routledge, 1994






    Learning is not so much an additive process, with new learning simply piling up on top of existing knowledge, as it is an active, dynamic process in which the connections are constantly changing and the structure reformatted

    K. Patricia Cross







    I think we need to train up a new kind of educational leader [who] will need fundamental preparation in the humanities of education, those studies of history, philosophy and literature that will enable him to develop a clear and compelling vision of education and of its relation to American life. These latter studies have been under something of a cloud in recent decades because their immediate utility is difficult to demonstrate. But it is their ultimate utility, that really matters, for only as educators begin to think deeply about the ends of learning will the politics of popular education go beyond mere competition for dollars and cents and become what Plato realized it must ideally be--a constant reaching for the good society

    Cremin







    Since there is no single set of abilities running throughout human nature, there is no single curriculum which all should undergo. Rather, the schools should teach everything that anyone is interested in learning

    John Dewey







    Learning from programmed information always hides reality behind a screen

    Ivan Illich









    Sometimes the last thing learners need is for their preferred learning style to be affirmed. Agreeing to let people learn only in a way that feels comfortable and familiar can restrict seriously their chance for development

    Steven Brookfield







    A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring

    Alexander Pope 1688-1744








    Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all

    Thomas Szasz, 1973








    Students learn what they care about . . . Stanford Ericksen has said, but Goethe knew something else: "In all things we learn only from those we love. Add to that Emerson's declaration: "the secret of education lies in respecting the pupil." and we have a formula something like this: "Students learn what they care about, from people they care about and who, they know, care about them

    Barbara Harrell Carson, 1996, Thiry Years of Stories







    The lasting measure of good teaching is what the individual student learns and carries away

    Barbara Harrell Carson, 1996, Thiry Years of Stories

    On Education




    It seems to me that at this time we need education in the obvious more than investigation of the obscure
    OliverWendell Holmes Jr





    All education springs from some image of the future. If the image of the future held by a society is grossly inaccurate, its education system will betray its youth
    Alvin Toffler







    The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youth
    Erasmus

    The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind; To train it to the use of its own powers rather than to fill it with the accumulation of others
    Tryon Edwards








    Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token to save it from that ruin, which, except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and the young, would be inevitable. An education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their choice of undertaking something new, something unforseen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing a common world
    Hannah Arendt







    To be able to be caught up into the world of thought--that is being educated
    Edith Hamilton








    Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper
    Robert Frost









    The highest result of education
    is tolerance
    Helen Keller










    Education is the art of making man
    ethical
    Georg Hegel, 1821









    Not perfection as a final goal, but the ever-enduring process of perfecting, maturing, refining is the aim of living
    John Dewey








    Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself
    John Dewey









    Education today, more than ever before, must see clearly the dual objectives: Education for living andeducating for making a living
    James Mason Wood









    What we must decide is perhaps how we are valuable, rather than how valuable we are
    F. Scott Fitzgerald









    Every uneducated person is a caricature
    of himself
    Friedrich Schlegel, 1798








    What sculpture is to a block of
    marble, education is to an human soul
    Joseph Addison, 1711







    How can we help students to understand that the tragedy of life is not death; the tragedy is to die with commitments undefined and convictions undeclared and service unfulfilled
    Vachel Lindsay









    Life is what happens when you are making other plans
    John Lennon 1940-1980







    Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago
    Berenson Bernard
