Classroom Strategy Study
"If they enjoy it, it's a bonus and that's fine and I am all for it, but even if they don't enjoy it, there are good reasons for them to learn given material and therefore to work at it."

"I like to use the words like meaningful, worthwhile, satisfying, valued, and appreciated. Those are the right kinds of words to describe the affective response of children when they are learning the way they ought to be learning."
