Den hÃ¤r lilla listan gjorde jag fÃ¶rra Ã¥ret nÃ¤r jag studerade fÃ¶r ett muntligt prov i pedagogik och kÃ¤nde mig less pÃ¥ alla flummiga bÃ¶cker. Det Ã¤r min hyllning till Everything I've learned about life I've learned from Star Wars-listorna. ****Everything I?ve learned about education I?ve learned from Star Wars******* While helping students: *Feel. Don?t think. Use your instincts. *Let the Force flow through you. *Use the Force, let go..trust me.. *Stretch out with your feelings. When students ask you questions you cannot answer: *There is no why. *You will know. When you are at peace. Calm. *Clear your mind from questions *The code forbids it. When students do not understand: *Always with you it cannot be done *You must unlearn what you have learned. *And that is why you fail [ when students have first said "I can?t believe it"] *Control, control you must learn control *Your eyes can deceive you. Don?t trust them. *I have grown tired of asking this. So it will be for the last time. *When you learn to quiet your mind you will hear them whispering to you. When students ask why they must learn a subject: *Mind what you have learned. Save you it can. *Things you will see. Other places. Old friends long gone. When students ask what they need to learn for a test: *Only what you take with you. Opinions of students: *The Force is strong in this one *You have learned much young one *Impressive, most impressive. *May the Force be with you ( suitable for graduation ) *Great shot kid. That was one in a million. When discussing with fellow teachers *I will not condone a course of action that will lead us to war *I will do what I must. *When I left you I was but the learner. Now I am the master. ( suitable if you start working on the same school you went to when you were young ) *The more you tighten your grip, the more students will slip through your fingers. *My fate will be no different than that of my students. Other useful lines: *Do or do not. There is no try. *The ability to speak does not make you intelligent *In my experience there is no such thing as luck.
