Quote of The Day

The essence of intelligence is skill in extracting meaning from everyday experience.


As I have said in many posts before, sometimes keeping a student engaged is as easy as showing them how the topic at hand applies to the real world. Often gifted students do not like to do unnecessary or seemingly irrelevant work, so if you show them how it can be used in their future, they may be more receptive to learning the subject.
