Quoting Quotable Quotes

Stating the obvious.
These are some of my favorite quotes from various tweets about education over the last few months:
                                                                           'Reading Is Not Optional'

"With the help of their teachers, students can develop the skillsets needed to solve problems that have not yet been recognized, analyze information as it becomes rapidly available in the globalized communication systems, and to skillfully and creatively take advantage of the evolving technological advances as they become available."

"Children’s reading scores improve dramatically when their parents are involved in helping them learn to read."

 "Teachers, more than any other feature of a school, determine how well students learn."

"Reading great literature, it has long been averred, enlarges and improves us as human beings. Brain science shows this claim is truer than we imagined."

'There is as much cause for hope as for horror. As David Orr said, “Hope is a verb with its sleeves rolled up.”

 The following are from a kids' book about Dr. King's famous quotes:
You are as good as anyone.
Dr. King as a boy.
When I grow up, I'm going to big big words, too.

                                            Everyone can be great.

Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.
I have a dream...

This is my favorite--

 "Think of oppositional behavior as an ingenious attempt to actually contribute."

I believe this is a child actor, but I have seen that expression more than once on a kid or two.
Now, class, if you can go through my past blogs and identify where these quotes came from, I'll give you some extra points for your quarter grade.

Also, teachers, don't forget Frame-a-Quote, and website with thousands of famous persons' quote, and/or topic. The kids can also frame and print their own quotes. Its great.
