The Poet, the CEO, and the First-Grade Teacher.
Dakin, Mary Ellen
Harvard Educational Review, v71 n2 p269-84 Sum 2001
Using Walt Whitman's poetry, a chief executive officer's speech, and a first-grade teacher's experience, a high school teacher describes the transformation of her understanding of achievement and intelligence. She concludes that having high expectations does not mean the same goals for every student and that students learn best what they learn out of desire and need. (SK)
