“You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”
–Clay P. Bedford
ELA classes are geared toward developing an academic curiosity that will serve students well throughout their continuing education and adulthood. It is this desire to want to know “how”, to want to know “why”, and to want to know “more” that is the key to success. For example, students who want to know how to write a better essay, why it is correct to say “between John and me”, not “between John and I”, and who want to know more about authors’ works are on the path to becoming enthusiastic learners.
