30 Days of Churchill - Day 3

Where my reason, imagination or interest were not engaged, I would not or I could not learn.  -- My Early Life, A Roving Commission (1930)

My Take - Turn learning into a game, and it's easy.   I learned to love reading by being read to.  Math came from games of counting.  Ethics and values came from listening to and reading stories that told a lesson without laying it on too thick.

Churchill was considered an educational disappointment to his parents(who weren't exactly parent of the year material), but I recall him reflecting that he and the other "dummies" who couldn't learn Greek and Latin actually learned to use the language that they would be using in day to day life.
