7:10 - Teachers are Affecting Our Kids Choices
14:45 - 3 Major Misconceptions
20:30 - Words are the Limit
35:03 - Alleviating the Suffering

The Takeaway Thought:
"It is dangerous to think about our students as “thinkers” - human beings never just “think”. We are emotional beings who perceive, feel, and think simultaneously. Our students - all learners, are “perfinkers” (David Krech). What does teaching look like when we acknowledge that our students are perfinkers?"
Gillian Judson

"If you say something to an individual and you think that they grasp your meaning, you are a full. Because any number of words I have used in a sentence could've led you to envision something slightly different. Words - we can't get beyond them, we are entitled to them but they limit us."
