Student Poster Humbles Humanity


Sometimes wisdom
comes in small packages.
In the case of Flor,
wisdom comes
in a 4 ft.  package.

Q POSTER Flor jpeg
Yes, it is quite a challenge
(and honor!)
teaching such a mind.

What do you get when you mix wild kids,
wilder parents,
wilder-er grad students,
and the wildest-est teachers & prof?

Obviously problems with
the comparative and superlative,
but also a recipe
for a new type of learning!


Special thanks to Alex Avila,
the media mastermind
behind it all.





Quotes from Kids

Quotationals® is a wisdom-based approach to learning. The program is comprised of an annual quote bee, student-submitted quote contest, after school club, and social networking components. The Quotationals® Quote Bee is the anchor of our program where K-12 students compete in rote memorization similar to a traditional spelling bee. The event is hosted by a local university that provides tours and tutors to bring college life to our families. Quips™, our after school club, prepares students for the bee and uses Socratic discussion to develop deeper understanding and articulation of thought. Family Nights extend this discourse in a coffee shop atmosphere that begins in school and continues at home. Our Submit-A-Quote Contest enables students to submit original quotations that we upload to Facebook and archive in our website of over 200,000 quotes.

The goal of Quotationals® is simple: To blur the lines between the classroom, college, and community.

Quotationals® is the first program that organically and adequately introduces wisdom to all learners. Our content is as old as the graffiti etched on Egyptian pyramids and as comprehensive as to include Plato, Mother Jones, and our own students. Parents move from passive audience to willing participants. Conversations are changing at home. Teachers and administrators from different sites band together to discuss pedagogy and content. College volunteers are inspired to inspire. Children think under pressure and now regularly reflect aloud in class. Quotationals® is creating a community of empowered parents, students, and teachers to change how we teach the next generation.
