The Teacher

Concerning a teacher’s influence, I have come to the

frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in

the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the

climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a

teacher, I possess tremendous power to make a child’s life

miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an

themselves, about each other, and about the subject

they’re studying. Students also learn more effectively on a

variety of measures when they can learn with each other

instead of against each other or apart from each other.

Cooperative learning works with kindergartners and

graduate students, with students who struggle to

understand and students who pick things up instantly; it

works for math and science, language skills and social

studies, fine arts and foreign languages.

A Learning Space needs to be hospitable not to make learning painless, but to make the painful things possible…things like exposing ignorance, testing tentative hypotheses, challenging false or partial information, and mutual criticism of thought. [None of these] can happen in an atmosphere where people feel threatened or judged.

- Parker J. Palmer
