15 Powerful Maya Angelou Quotes

15 Powerful Maya Angelou Quotes | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it

 

Maya Angelou has died at the age of 86, but the great American writer and poet left behind a body of work that ranks among the greatest in world literature. Even when she did not put pen to paper, her words during interviews were equally as powerful. Below are a few of her most memorable quotes.

 

1.  “I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.” Source: USA Today

 

2. Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. Source: Maya Angelou Facebook Page

Do we need more certification and qualification for teachers? Or do we need better support in daily work they undertake? We treat teaching as if it is operating in a deficit model. Perhaps a new way of seeing teaching as operating from strength is required.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, May 4, 2014 12:16 PM

"In other words, one of the great teacher misunderstandings is that we have to teach the understanding for understanding to occur. On the contrary, as mystery stories, movies, and (especially) video games reveal, the learner is not only perfectly capable of drawing appropriate inferences, such activity is key to increasing intellectual engagement and reducing the boredom of schooling.  And ironically, the literature on student misconception reveals that in spite of clear “teaching” of big ideas, many students do not understand what they have been taught (even if they pass our quizzes)."

I attended a critical thinking workshop about 4 years ago. I described how parents and I helped children in classrooms and at home. One of the facilitators asked how I marked those projects and was I sure students were not cheating. I responded by saying cooperation and working together were valued in life and what would make not valued in schools. We used rubrics. Schools are not to prepare students for a future life, but to live the current life.

Apps That Challenge Kids to Solve Environmental Issues | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it
Environmental education for most adults used to mean learning a little bit about recycling and planting some trees on Arbor Day. We didn't delve into ecology as much as we skimmed the surface. But things have gotten more complex since then, and the topic of climate change has brought environmental education to the forefront.

This is not your average read and forget topic.


This topic is one to ponder, seriously ponder.  Your participation in shaping a better tomorrow is required.


More immigrants.  More cultural and ethnic diversity.  A possible inversion of the social pyramid.


These issues are critical to our children and grandchildren. 


How we deal with the coming population shift now will affect the world in which they live.


Because of the U.S. role in the world, this change will likewise impact the entire globe.


Read. 


Reflect.

 

Act.


As we do in our individual lives, clusters, and neighborhoods, so goes the world.
