This book is a collection of quotations and documents, which I have gathered and used in my classroom over the duration of my thirty-year teaching career. In many ways they are theessence of my teaching and learning experiences in public education.
My retirement from the classroom has brought me the freedom to pursue another dream. I have found great satisfaction and excitement in writing. If my writing achieves its purpose then I have embarked on a second career. It is my desire that this book will be a great resource for teachers.
I used quotes as a cognitive and memorable part of my student's daily educational experience. Asking the questions; what does this quote mean or what is the author trying tocommunicate with us, will help students to analysis the quote and put it into their own words. Many interesting, spontaneous and enlightening discussions may follow as students share their interpretations. The art of deciphering quotes and writing interpretations is a classy way to start your day, hence the title; A Touch of Class.
The discipline of using meaningful quotes to teach life-lessons in my classroom was met with personal success. Therefore, it is my wish to inspire other teachers to use quotes as a practical part of their classroom experience. Through the implementation of quotes, it is my hope that you and your students will gain insight into the mystery of human behavior and pursue the enrichment of character-building within the class setting.
I have compiled this collection of quotes and documents into three sections: A Wealth of Wisdom for Teachers, The Making of a Great Nation, and Earth's Wonders and Resources. These sections are designed for teachers of all grade levels. In Parts Two and Three, topics related to history and science are emphasized respectively. This treasure of quotes is designed to be a continuous source of strength, encouragement, joy, and enrichment throughout your teaching career.
The Author's Wish for You May you get all your wishes but one; So you always have something to strive for.
