[I Don't Believe Some Teachers Consider Whether Their Classroom Instruction Fosters The Development Of Reading Habits In Their Students. Reflecting On The Landslide Of Crossword Puzzles, Dioramas, Annotations, And Reading Logs Assigned To Their Students For Every Book They Read, Teachers Might Realize That Instead Of Encouraging Students To Read, These Mindless Assignments Make Kids Hate Reading. Primarily Assigned To Generate Grades And Give Teachers A False Sense That They Are Holding Students Accountable For Reading, These Counterfeit Activities—that No Wild Reader Completes On His Or Her Own—guarantee That Their Students Will Avoid Reading. If We Care About Our Students' Reading Lives, We Must Foster Their Lifelong Reading Habits And Eliminate Or Reduce The Negative Influences Of Classroom Practices That Don't Align With What Wild Readers Do.]

Brian D McLaren Quotes

"In the previous few minutes, I had seen the most beautiful thing that eyes can see: the glory of God shining in the radiance of creation.

And I had felt the most beautiful thing that any heart can ever feel: the love of God and the love of others."

Gustav Temple And Vic Darkwood Quotes

"The Dandy is the highest form of existence attainable by the human form. His life is exclusively dedicated to dressing exquisitely, parading about the fashionable boroughs of splendid cities and and holding forth at his club, where he dispenses witticism as readily as the vulgaroisie utters its banal platitudes. The only species of work this singular Chap might engage in would consist of discussing buttonhole stitching with his tailor and performing his ablutions until the morning has been well aired enough for him to step into it."

Quotes About True Love And Trust

"If my brothers and sisters in Christ continue to tell me something about myself that I do not see as true and accurate, I must come to a place where I trust the body, looking at me objectively, more than I trust myself, looking at me subjectively. This is especially true when we are dealing with people who know and love us, those who live and serve in close proximity. Praise God for loving Christian spouses, siblings, and even children in whom both the Spirit of God and a willingness to be lovingly honest abide." - Author: Voddie T. Baucham Jr.

Quotes About Seceret

"... in an even wilder part of the rivers jungle of cane and gum and pin oak, there is an Indian mound. Aboriginal, it rises profoundly and darkly enigmatic, the only elevation of any kind in the wild, flat jungle of river bottom. Even to some of us - children though we were, yet we were descended to literate, town-bred people - it possessed inferences of secret and violent blood, of savage and sudden destruction, as though the yells and hatchets we associated with Indians through the hidden and seceret dime novels which we passed among ourselves were but trivial and momentary manifestations of what dark power still dwelled or lurked there, sinister, a little sardonic, like a dark and nameless beast lightly and lazily slumbering with bloody jaws..." - Author: William Faulkner

Quotes About Plants And Trees

"In Scandanavia, Iverson finds that the whole spectrum of pollen deposits is altered when (in early Neolithic times) ... the first farmers appear. Cereal pollens increase. Plants of oak woodland lessen and disappear; birch pollen increases rapidly -- it is one of the trees which can come in after an extensive burn. For the pollen record, the effect of early agriculture is as severe as a shift in climate." - Author: Russell Lord
