Famous quotes containing the words classroom and/or activities:
“Children learn and remember at least as much from the context of the classroom as from the content of the coursework.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
“If it is to be done well, child-rearing requires, more than most activities of life, a good deal of decentering from ones own needs and perspectives. Such decentering is relatively easy when a society is stable and when there is an extended, supportive structure that the parent can depend upon.”
—David Elkind (20th century)
