Natasha, a student in a course on critical literacy that I taught this past spring had a post on her blog titled “quotes to inspire critical literacy…” She said that she tries to pick quotes that have some reference to education or math, the subject she teaches, or some life lesson. She also invited students to bring in quotes and offer them up for class discussion. Inspired by Natasha’s post, I decided to try a new segment on CLIP using Quotable Quotes.
Thank you so much to Sonia Nieto for sending the following quote to get this segment started…
“To study is not to consume ideas, but to create and re-create them.”
Paulo Freire (1985) author of The Politics of Education: Culture, Power,and Liberation.
