  29. 29. QUOTATIONS - MY SUGGESTIONS The posters are 8 1/2 x 11. Print on heavier stock paper for display in the classroom. I created this project a number of years ago to use with my English classes. The quotations I gathered were to challenge my students to think about the power of education and learning and to inspire them to put great effort and pride in all that they do. I display two or three posters a month as “food for thought”. I have my students do a mini research project right before Presidents’ Day. We have discussions about education and learning and I ask for feedback about the quotations. I always have some amazing responses! Here are some examples of their responses during our discussions: “I never thought about education and that there were so many people who wrote about it”. “After reading the quotation I picked, I decided to put more effort into my homework”. “I’ve never liked reading, but after I did the project, I decided to read more books.” STUDENT PROJECT - MINI REPORT When I display the first poster in class in the beginning of the year, I explain that I’ll be displaying two or three a month and that they should read and think about them. I have them do the mini research report in February just before Presidents’ Day. HOW TO DO THE REPORT Prior to Presidents’ Day... Make copies of the three quotation sheets (with the 23 quotations) and distribute them to your students. Have your students read the quotations, but at this point, they shouldn’t try to interpret them. Explain that they should think about the quotations and then choose one (or more) person/people to research. Make copies of the research page where they enter information about the person or people they choose to research. Some like to research more than one person. Have your students find information on the Web about the people or person they choose. Explain that the four facts on the student research page should include the person’s occupation (philosopher, educator, politician,etc) and other important facts about the person. I have them cut the quotations from the student pages and paste them in the boxes on the research page. Have them get into small groups so they can share their information sheets. I also explain that everyone has a right to his/her opinion and that one interpretation isn’t necessarily the correct one. I encourage them to discuss their interpretations of the quotations. This leads to great discussions about the various interpretations. Many times I’ll stop the groups briefly and ask, for example, who had done research about Marvin Minsky. I ask those students to explain what the quotation means so that the whole group hears different interpretations. I also display the students’ papers with their interpretations. Some of these quotations are more difficult than others to interpret therefore pick and choose the ones that you want to use depending on the age/ability level of your students.
