Tweets of the Week April 19-25th

These were the tweets that made me stop and think this week:

This is so true for me.  I try hard to help my students develop a world view, think critically, and grow personally.  Content matters, but so does everything else!

I've seen this quote before and I love it.  It's true of so many skills.  Just because you can do something doesn't mean anything.  You have to use the skill for it to have true meaning.
I've been thinking about this more and more as I teach college.  There is an interesting issue at the community college however of having students fresh from high school with many of those skills and then students in their late 20s, 30s, and even 50s and 60s who may or may not get this "new fangled" teaching!

I'm working on some social justice unit ideas and so this really gave me pause.  I need to consider this more.

Let me know if there's someone I just HAVE to follow on twitter!
Thanks for reading!
