Cliches of Teaching by Elsie Warnock


Cliches of Teaching by Elsie Warnock

While visiting with my mother the other day, I thought of this little book she wrote for me when I started my internship. It was typed on an electric typewriter and put together by hand. She can no longer see the text, but the book is a treasure to me. Below is an excerpt that influenced my thinking about education and the importance of reading.  

CLICHE #4: Every Teacher is a Teacher of Reading. 

Reading is not just a list of lessons for grades one through three. Reading is a skill and skills must be practiced forever. The teacher who teaches his subject by teaching the vocabulary of that field, by teaching how to use textbooks or other tools…is a teacher of reading. And that teacher can be in English, history, science, math, shop, speech…..or band.  Excerpt by Elsie Warnock, from the first, and only edition of Cliches of Teaching
