:D Hi,

:P I am an educator who has found the quotationspage website extremely exciting because it has become a major resource for my lesson plans. Elementary school students enjoy analyzing quotes, and writing about what they think they mean. To some students, a quotation is a discovery of alternatives and options that help in their day to day challenges of becoming a good human being.

:wink:

:) Aristotle said, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to
entertain a thought without accepting".

So many students do not analyze an idea, they just simply adopt it
because it is popular; they don't know that they are free to
discard it.

:idea: Epictetus wrote in Discourses, "Only the educated are
free".

Yes I'm in sorta the same position :) Do it! The best way how to teach people is to let them discuss something. Just go to Quotations Talk/Fluff Forum and look at some questions people have, or some topics people discuss here and let your students do the same in school.

Hi I am a new member and have been enjoying this page for a while b4 I signed up as a member. Just recently I learned by watching my son how neat forums are, in fact he turned me into this one.
Congratulations Michael on this site, much to learn here, love it!

I believe the words educator and teacher could be synonims...is that possible? I been working as such for the last 10 years...there are many other teacher here any opinions?

You can educate someone without being officially employed as a teacher. but there again i spose you can be a teacher to some one without it being your job title.
