In this presentation, Lori Jill explains how vitally important it is that we build a good, strong foundation. She mentions that even to make a very small error in building the foundation—an inch off level—could result in significant errors later. The Leaning Tower of Pisa reminds us of this. We read this from Wikipedia:

The tower’s tilt began during construction in the 12th century, caused by an inadequate foundation on ground too soft on one side to properly support the structure’s weight. The tilt increased in the decades before the structure was completed in the 14th century. It gradually increased until the structure was stabilized (and the tilt partially corrected) by efforts in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Lori Jill also reminds us that grammar school educators are seeking to impart the tools of learning that will help students learn to learn. Just what are those tools of learning?
