"Every single child wants to be successful. The problem is, if they can't be successful at being successful, they'll be successful at screwing up. Our job as educators is to change the latter to the former."    

- from the The Missing Link by Steve Heisler

Starting Out

The idea that just 'teach better' and everything else in the classroom will work out is long outmoded. Indeed Abigail Adam's admonition that learning had to be "sought after" with perseverance and passion should have laid that to rest with the hegemony of England over the colonies.  Desire for learning must be taught before students can be expected to desire to learn. Simple idea. Hard to do but absolutely doable.
