Elizabeth Foss, Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home
It’s hard to put this book down, but I did put it down near the beginning when I read this passage. I got to thinking about the Monday Morning Memo’s call for great teachers and about what it meant to be a great teacher. I got to thinking about children as buckets versus children as sponges versus children as people. I got to thinking about my reasons for various parental philosophies (education included) and how all of this makes my heart beat faster, my blood flow hotter, my brain think louder.
