Learning While Teaching Quotes By Donovan L. Graham

While teachers often complain that their students seem to do very little thinking, teachers who simply follow the manual should understand that they are actually contributing to the problem. Students seldom learn to think under the tutelage of teachers who do not think either. — Donovan L. Graham

A lesson that is never learned can never be too often taught. — Seneca The Younger

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Darren Shan

Students never appreciate their teachers while they are learning. It is only later, when they know more of the world, that they understand how indebted they are to those who instructed them. Good teachers expect no praise or love from the young. They wait for it, and in time, it comes. — Darren Shan

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Elizabeth F. Barkley

Although the terms teaching and learning are typically paired, those of us who teach know that students don't always learn. When I complained about this early in my teaching career, a colleagues chided me: "Saying 'I thaught the students something, they just didn't learn it' is akin to saying 'I sold them the car, they just didn't but it'". — Elizabeth F. Barkley

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Tim Fargo

We need people who push boundaries rather than retreat inside them. — Tim Fargo

Learning While Teaching Quotes By David C. Pollock

Caregivers, like all of us, inevitably reflect their culture's attitude toward children and life. The story goes that when Pearl Buck was a child in China, someone asked how she compared her mother to her Chinese amah. Buck replied, "If I want to have a story read, I go to my mother. But if I fall down and need to be comforted, I go to my amah." Her mother's culture valued teaching and learning, while her amah's placed a greater value on nurture. Even as a child, Buck instinctively knew the difference. — David C. Pollock

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Robert M. Pirsig

The fact that they were there as students presumed they did not know what was good or bad. That was his job as instructor ... to tell them what was good or bad. The whole idea of individual creativity and expression in the classroom was really basically opposed to the whole idea of the University. — Robert M. Pirsig

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Marcus Samuelsson

But one of the things I have learned during the time I have spent in the United States is an old African American saying: Each one, teach one. I want to believe that I am here to teach one and, more, that there is one here who is meant to teach me. And if we each one teach one, we will make a difference. — Marcus Samuelsson

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

The master said:
I come not only to teach,
but to learn.
Learn first,
then teach;
that is wisdom. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Chuck Klosterman

On the third play he dropped back to pass, and it was unadulterated chaos: The pocket was immediately collapsing, people were yelling, everything was happening at the same time, and it felt like he was trying to defuse a pipe bomb while learning to speak Cantonese."
"He believed it was his destiny to kill faceless foreigners for complex reasons that were beyond his control, and to deeply question the meaning of those murders, and to kill despite those questions, and to eventually understand the meaning of his own life through the battlefield executions of total strangers."
"Teaching history to eighth graders is like being a tour guide for people who hate their vacation."
"There is no feeling that can match the emotive intensity of an attraction devoid of explanation. — Chuck Klosterman

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Loris Malaguzzi

Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before. — Loris Malaguzzi

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Jim Butcher

One time, when we'd been discussing martial arts, Murphy told me that eventually, no-one can teach you anything more about them. Once you reach that state of knowledge, the only way to keep learning and increasing your own skill is to teach what you know to others. That's why she teaches a children's class and a rape-defence course every spring and fall at one of her neighbourhood's community centres.
It sounded kind of flaky-Zen to me at the time, but Hell's bells, she'd been right. Once upon a time, it would have taken me an hour, if not more, to attain the proper frame of mind. In the course of teaching Molly to meditate, though, I had found myself going over the basics again for the first time in years, and understanding them with a deeper and richer perspective than I'd had when I was her age. I'd been getting almost as much insight and new understanding of my knowledge from teaching Molly as she'd been learning from me. — Jim Butcher

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Augustine Of Hippo

At one time in my infancy I also knew no Latin, and yet by listening I learnt it with no fear or pain at all, from my nurses caressing me, from people laughing over jokes, and from those who played games and were enjoying them. I learnt Latin without the threat of punishment from anyone forcing me to learn it. My own heart constrained me to bring its concepts to birth, which I could not have done unless I had learnt some words, not from formal teaching but by listening to people talking; and they in turn were the audience for my thoughts. This experience sufficiently illuminates the truth that free curiosity has greater power to stimulate learning than rigorous coercion. — Augustine Of Hippo

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

The ability to take misfortune and make something good come of it is a rare gift. Those who possess it are ..said to have resilience or courage. — Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Morgan Llywelyn

Teaching meant for the hands enters most easily through the eyes. — Morgan Llywelyn

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Thomas Carlyle

Life is a series of lessons that have to be understood. — Thomas Carlyle

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Margaret Mead

In every human society of which we have any record, there are those who teach and those who learn, for learning a way of life is implicit in all human culture as we know it. But the separation of the teacher's role from the role of all adults who inducted the young into the habitual behavior of the group, was a comparatively late invention. Furthermore, when we do find explicit and defined teaching, in primitive societies we find it tied in with a sense of the rareness or the precariousness of some human tradition. — Margaret Mead

Learning While Teaching Quotes By William Hazlitt

That which anyone has been long learning unwillingly, he unlearns with proportional eagerness and haste. — William Hazlitt

Learning While Teaching Quotes By David B. Coe

In teaching writing, I'm learning new things about writing. — David B. Coe

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Jess Walter

I doubt the terrorists saw 9/11 as a teaching opportunity. And we're not really a culture geared to anything as humble as 'learning.' But I was disappointed in how quickly everyone wanted to get back to normal. It was as if we watched terrorism on TV for a while, then got bored and turned back to 'American Idol.' — Jess Walter

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Arnold J. Toynbee

The aim of all education is, or should be, to teach people to educate themselves. — Arnold J. Toynbee

Learning While Teaching Quotes By A.J. Darkholme

Sometimes it feels like you have nothing, or aren't going anywhere, but while you're waiting for fortune to deliver you, there is always something you can do to help yourself, or teach yourself to better your situation. — A.J. Darkholme

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Roger Fouts

If you try to impose a rigid discipline while teaching a child or a chimp you are working against the boundless curiosity and need for relaxed play that make learning possible in the first place ... learning cannot be controlled; it is out of control by design. Learning emerges spontaneously, it proceeds in an individualistic and unpredictable way, and it achieves its goal in its own good time. Once triggered, learning will not stop
unless it is hijacked by conditioning. — Roger Fouts

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Russell L. Ackoff

Traditional education focuses on teaching, not learning. It incorrectly assumes that for every ounce of teaching there is an ounce of learning by those who are taught. However, most of what we learn before, during, and after attending schools is learned without its being taught to us. A child learns such fundamental things as how to walk, talk, eat, dress, and so on without being taught these things. Adults learn most of what they use at work or at leisure while at work or leisure. Most of what is taught in classroom settings is forgotten, and much or what is remembered is irrelevant. — Russell L. Ackoff

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Nicholas Negroponte

While a significant part of learning certain comes from teaching - but good teaching and by good teachers - a major measure comes from exploration, from reinventing the wheel and finding out for oneself. — Nicholas Negroponte

Learning While Teaching Quotes By H. Morse Stephens

produced a race of heroes, so not less surely did the growth of luxury and absolutism, assisted by the narrow-mindedness of a dynasty of bigots, lose for Portugal the lofty place which her heroes had won for her. These are things well worth pondering upon and lessons well worth learning, for the great value of the study of history is in teaching such truths as these - truths which are eternal, while nations wax and wane. The — H. Morse Stephens

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Donovan L. Graham

Most Christian teachers would profess to believe that their students are made in the image of God. . .Classroom practices, however, often reveal that students are not treated accordingly. They are not challenged to think through issues and carefully examine the various positions relevant to the issue. Instead they are simply given information as correct answers to be remembered and reproduced on a test or in some other written form. Rather than create an art project that reveals something about the way they view the world, they are given specific instructions for completing each step of the project and criticized, for example, if the trees are not green. While verbally teaching Johnny that he is an important person, a teacher may employ a learning model or classroom discipline system that clearly treats him as on object to be shaped and controlled by a system. . . (p18) — Donovan L. Graham

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Tony Danza

Teaching is different today. Teachers don't just stand at the board and lecture while the kids take notes. What we're ultimately teaching them is to teach themselves. — Tony Danza

Learning While Teaching Quotes By C.S. Lewis

In a word, we may reasonably hope for the virtual abolition of education when I'm as good as you has fully had its way. All incentives to learn and all penalties for not learning will vanish.The few who might want to learn will be prevented; who are they to overtop their fellows? And anyway the teachers
or should I say, nurses?
will be far too busy reassuring the dunces and patting them on the back to waste any time on real teaching. We shall no longer have to plan and toil to spread imperturable conceit and incurable ignorance among men. The little vermin themselves will do it for us. — C.S. Lewis

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Suzy Kassem

Have faith that your child's brain is an evolving planet that rotates at its own speed. It will naturally be attracted to or repel certain subjects. — Suzy Kassem

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Tim Fargo

If we spark a student's passion, we unleash a powerful force upon the world. — Tim Fargo

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Idries Shah

The institution of teachership is there for this reason, that the learner must learn how to learn. — Idries Shah

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Those periods of struggling to overcome challenges are what people find to be the most enjoyable times. — Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Learning While Teaching Quotes By John Wooden

Winning and losing aren't all they're cracked up to be, but the trip to the destination is. — John Wooden

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Ken Bain

To benefit from what the best teachers do, however, we must embrace a different model, one in which teaching occurs only when learning takes place. Most fundamentally, teaching in this conception is creating those conditions in which most
if not all
of our students will realize their potential to learn. That sounds like hard work, and it is a little scary because we don't have complete control over who we are, but it is highly rewarding and obtainable. — Ken Bain

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Idries Shah

If your desire for 'good' is based on greed, it is not good, but greed. — Idries Shah

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Greg Carlson

Teaching is the art of serendipity. Each of us has the experience of finding out that something we intended as only the most casual of remarks, or the stray example, changes the way some students thought to the point of changing their lives. — Greg Carlson

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Markus Zusak

Did you learn?"
The face in the corner watched the flames. "I did." There was a considerable pause. "Until I was nine. At that age, my mother sold the music studio and stopped teaching. SHe kept only the one instrument but gave up on me not long after I resisted the learning. I was foolish."
"No," Papa said. "You were a boy. — Markus Zusak

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Philosophy is the history of philosophy. — Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Abraham Flexner

The new naval treaty permits the United States to spend a billion dollars on warships - a sum greater than has been accumulated by all our endowed institutions of learning in their entire history. Unintelligence could go no further! ... [In Great Britain, the situation is similar.] ... Until the figures are reversed, ... nations deceive themselves as to what they care about most. — Abraham Flexner

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Margaret Halsey

Example is better than precept. — Margaret Halsey

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Miyamoto Musashi

As the innocent infant relies upon the mother for sustenance, so the innocent wanderer, following his native compassion and bliss, relies upon the natural intelligence of life to sustain him. There are various Ways. There is the Way of salvation by the law of Buddha, the Way of Confucius governing the Way of learning, the Way of healing as a doctor, as a poet teaching the Way of Waka, tea, archery, and many arts and skills. Each man practices as he feels inclined. — Miyamoto Musashi

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Pope Benedict XVI

Jesus' teaching is not the product of human learning, of whatever kind. It originates from immediate contact with the Father, from "face-to-face" dialogue - from the vision of the one who rests close to the Father's heart. It is the Son's word. Without this inner grounding, his teaching would be pure presumption. — Pope Benedict XVI

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Idries Shah

It is no accident that Sufis find that they can connect most constructively with people who are well integrated into the world, as well as having higher aims, and that those who adopt a sensible attitude towards society and life as generally known can usually absorb Sufi teachings very well indeed — Idries Shah

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Marva Collins

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Plato

Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds. — Plato

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Criss Jami

With too much pride a man cannot learn a thing. In and of itself, learning teaches you how foolish you are. — Criss Jami

Learning While Teaching Quotes By Ann Voskamp

Be radical about grace and relentless about truth and resolute about holiness ... — Ann Voskamp
