Teaching More Than Just Words

A word by itself is a wonderful thing
as worthy to the fiddle one string
but adorned with a sentence
a word blossoms in sense
inviting young hearts to sing.

So teach the words by poem or book
that coax young eyes to delve and look
teach words that dance within a song
and tempt young minds to travel along


As mystery, adventure and images churn
Inside young heads as every page turns
deeper knowledge of the language they'll yearn 
for far more than words they'll be fond
wanting to discover what's happening beyond.

And the source of this inspiration comes from my own English teacher, Mrs Dodson, who taught literature and poetry with such amazing passion that I still remember books, short stories and poems even to this day. She was a wonderful teacher. Thank you Mrs Dodson.

well powerful and truth...profanity is used because a lack of word...a person that can't read can use profanity...plus confidence comes with reading...the world opens up...

A word has true meaning only in context with the idea or concept being expressed.  Interpretation is critical to understanding so teaching words alone is relatively meaningless.
