"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Great teaching should inspire learning through more than attention-grabbing, however.  Reminder: the person who does the--hard, and occasionally monotonous--work of learning is the student. It doesn't matter how many white-lab-coat chemical explosions they witness, or if their fifth grade teacher dresses up like Amelia Earhart--there is no learning without diligent effort on the part of the child. 


You can't coach "Want To."
