"Teaching is something one does out of love." I'm currently reading The Color Purple and there are two sisters, one is teaching the other how to read. Having the patience and love for another human being to teach them what we know, what we have learned in life is such a strong form of mutuality. If everyone shared this form of love and treated each other as sisters and brothers, we'd be on our way.
On Thursday, November 9, jeanne responded:Good comment, Sakeenah. I'd give you an "A" for that because you conceptually linked our "respect for learning" discussion to readings you are doing in another class, and you did so well and aptly, with good detail. You might want to give the approximate place in the Color Purple where this scene occurs. Maybe the page in your version, as against the total number of pages in that version, or the Chapter in which the scene you describe occurs. This would permit others to read the section to which you are referring.
I also appreciated the way you built that into one of the major issues for our class: mutuality. And you kept your comment fairly brief. That took some thought and some organization. Good work.
