The value of students' questions has been emphasized by several authors (e.g. Biddulph, Symington, & Osborne, 1986; Fisher, 1990; Penick, Crow, & Bonnsteter, 1996). Questions raised by students activate their prior knowledge, focus their learning efforts, and help them elaborate on their knowledge (Schmidt, 1993). The act of ‘composing questions’ focuses the attention of students on content, main ideas, and checking if content is understood (Rosenshine, Meister, & Chapman, 1996). The ability to ask good thinking questions is also an important component of scientific literacy, where the goal of making individuals critical consumers of scientific knowledge (Millar & Osborne, 1998) requires such a facility. ~ Christine Chin & Jonathan Osborne

Students are people who are engaged in learning, particularly those who attend an educational institution. In some nations, the English term (or its cognate in another language) is reserved for those who attend university, while a schoolchild under the age of eighteen is called a pupil in English (or an equivalent in other languages). In its widest use, student is used for anyone who is learning.

  • Q:What’s the update on repatriated students from Ukraine?
A:Many of them are doing well now, for example in Canada there is a university that gave admission to 62 of them and they cut down the fees for them, also the Netherlands was fantastic as they gave a lot of our people support. Some of them have returned home and are trying to get into schools.
  • It is necessary to be particularly on your guard with regard to the young ladies, into whose company you are introduced - it is perfectly well understood in society that ladies may shew to youths in the position of Private Pupils a sort of kindness and attention, which they would not think of shewing if these youths were a little older and more out of the world.
    • Charles Dodgson Letters to Skeffington Dodgson from his Father (1990) p. 11


  • Where should the scholar live? In solitude, or in society? in the green stillness of the country, where he can hear the heart of Nature beat, or in the dark, gray town where he can hear and feel the throbbing heart of man?




  • And then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
    And shining morning face, creeping like snail
    Unwillingly to school.
  • He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one;
    Exceeding wise, fair-spoken, and persuading;
    Lofty and sour to them that lov'd him not;
    But to those men that sought him sweet as summer.
  • And with unwearied fingers drawing out
    The lines of life, from living knowledge hid.
    • Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene (1589-96), Book IV, Canto II, Stanza 48.

  • Rocking on a lazy billow
    With roaming eyes,
    Cushioned on a dreamy pillow,
    Thou art now wise.
    Wake the power within thee slumbering,
    Trim the plot that's in thy keeping,
    Thou wilt bless the task when reaping
    Sweet labour's prize.
  • Strange to the world, he wore a bashful look,
    The fields his study, nature was his book.
  • Experience is the best of schoolmasters, only the school-fees are heavy.
  • The scholar who cherishes the love of comfort, is not fit to be deemed a scholar.
  • The studious class are their own victims; they are thin and pale, their feet are cold, their heads are hot, the night is without sleep, the day a fear of interruption,—pallor, squalor, hunger, and egotism. If you come near them and see what conceits they entertain—they are abstractionists, and spend their days and nights in dreaming some dream; in expecting the homage of society to some precious scheme built on a truth, but destitute of proportion in its presentment, of justness in its application, and of all energy of will in the schemer to embody and vitalize it.
  • The world's great men have not commonly been great scholars, nor its great scholars great men.
  • Ah, pensive scholar, what is fame?
    A fitful tongue of leaping flame;
    A giddy whirlwind's fickle gust,
    That lifts a pinch of mortal dust;
    A few swift years, and who can show
    Which dust was Bill, and which was Joe?
