Teaching Tolerance ran an article by Michelle Nicola, The Case for Love in the Classroom, highlighting the fact that students learn best from people they love (also, see NY Times opinion piece). It sheds light on what many of us in education understand—relationships matte
As we celebrated and honored Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. yesterday, I reflected on how he used love as a way to fight for social justice. His words about love have been used so much that it is easy for us to dismiss as clichè. Still, today more than ever, holding on to his sentiments is necessary. However you chose to honor him, my hope is that it was in action and with love. We invite you to further experience the value of service and get more involved with EHTP. We are always looking for educators and volunteers who share our passion for learning and social justice. Please go to ehtp.org or contact us for more information.
