Valuing our intellect

(part two)

Bea Roegge: This is the second portion of our program on valuing our intellect. As we continue our discussion, our guest is Dr. Rosalie Dunbar, who from her background of studies in religious education, and her extensive writing, editing, and broadcasting experience, has some things to say on our subject that I'm sure we'll all find valuable. Rosalie, thank you for joining us. We'd love to hear your thoughts on intellect.

Rosalie Dunbar: Well, that's an enormous subject. When I was in grade school, I had a lot of trouble learning, especially learning to read and to understand the multiplication tables. I went, believe it or not, to a one-room country schoolhouse where you would have to go up in front of the class and the teacher would point out the sentence you were to read, and so forth. I couldn't learn to read for anything. I would have given all I had to be able to get up there are read "See Dick run." I tried memorizing the little book, hoping that I could parrot what was needed. That didn't work either. The teacher just basically thought I was hopeless.

Bea: Even at that are you thought you could memorize as a solution to the problem. I think that shows a lot of intelligence.
