Teaching with Stories

“The best teachers are storytellers: they craft a narrative, hold the attention of the room, provide examples that stick in your brain. It worked for Aesop, and it’s a method that still holds up today.” Matt Goolding

The Queen’s English

“This was always my trouble when I was learning to speak your language. Every word can defend itself. Just when you grab it, it can split into two separate meanings so the understanding closes on empty air. I admire you people. You are like sorcerers and you have made your language as safe as money.” ~ Little Bee
