Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
~ Albert Einstein
Cues involve “hints” about what students are about to experience.
Cueing and questioning might account for as much as 80 percent of what occurs in a given classroom on a given day. (see Davis, O.L., & Tinsley, 1967; Fillippone, 1998)
~Winnie the Pooh
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.
