Nothing that is worth knowing can be taught. - Oscar Wilde

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Hmmmm. Here I am a school teacher, and this quote from Oscar Wilde seems to say that you can't teach the important stuff. Frankly, I'm thinking that Wilde was right. The stuff that is really important must be learned on your own. I have students at school every day and I can't "teach" them anything unless they WANT to learn it. They aren't going to learn anything unless they WORK at it. I can make the information available to them, but they have to assimilate it. Yes, I think Oscar Wilde was right. So much for my job.
