Standard

“… Words may themselves be the agent through which his consciousness is raised. If they appear on a vocabulary list, they surely will not. But if they appear in a context which is filled with importance,if not urgency, they may arouse the sense of curiousity or wonder or need from which durable and profound learning originates.” – Neil Postman, Language Education in a Knowledge Context
