# Word for the Day

 Anything that relates to teaching…



Anything that relates to teaching is pedagogical. If your teacher has pedagogical dreams all night long, even in sleep, his mind is in the classroom.


The adjective pedagogical, pronounced “peh-duh-GAH-gi-cal,” comes from the Greek word paidagōgikos meaning “teacher.” If it’s pedagogical, it concerns teaching, from lesson plans to approaches to teaching, even how the classroom looks — in rooms where the teacher’s pedagogical philosophy is that students learn better when they work collaboratively, desks may be pushed together so four students can sit in their groups.
