QUESTION: Quote about Learning and what is left over?

OK, So I remember hearing a famous quote that was something like:



"Learning is what you remember" or



"What's left over is learning" or



"The residue of education is learning" or



"Only what you remember is learning"

Teaching Miller's Dark Knight Returns

My colleague came into my classes today to discuss DKR, and as usual, the kids had loads of questions that led led to informative discussion about the DC Comics universe, contrast between Marvel and DC, the 1980s, Miller's unique rendition of the Batman mythos, and much more. To be honest, this is the second time I have taught this text to high school seniors and our discussions only scratch the surface of really understanding this novel. There is just so much to talk about that is… Continue
