    The Proposals of Individual Differences and Multiple Intelligences

    This is a general education post on how students can use their "individual differences" in the classroom to understand subjects clearly. There are four proposals on how individual differences should be used in a classroom environment, and this post is dedicated to merging the theory of "multiple intelligences" into the four proposals.

    Substitute Teachers and Relating to Students

    To be a successful substitute teacher, one must be able to understand how to balance information alongside reason. One main problem is that in the state of Florida, a part-time substitute teacher only needs an Associate’s Degree. The state tends to keep substitute teachers on a completely different standard of education than the so-called standard ones.…

    The Marva Collins Story: Bureaucracy in Education

    Mrs. Marva Collins, a full-time substitute teacher in the “ghettos” of mid-1970s Chicago, found herself in a rather difficult decision when it came to how she could run her class. With rowdiness and pseudo-fights occurring in the hallways before the two minute and fifty second mark was even past, it’s obvious that the learning environment…

    Merging Technology with Kagan

    If you're in the public education system, then you've heard about (or have been forced to use) Kagan activities like Bloom’s Taxonomy Questions and the Fan-n-Pick Strategy – two methods to incite engagement through knowledge-based questions that we'll be talking about today. I personally have a bias against Kaganist (clever pun, please love it) activities, but…

    DeVostating the Education System

    Conservatism is at it again with attempts to destroy the public education system. At this point, it is almost certain that Betsy DeVos - the multi-billionaire who has already begun the push for the privatization of education - will become America's 11th Education Secretary. If you've been living under a rock (or perhaps inside a nuclear…

    Kim Jong-un Has A Major Problem

    Some interesting news from a South Korean intelligence service has made some international headlines this past week. It seems that Kim Jong-un, who assumed the office of “Supreme Leader of the DPRK” on December 30th, 2011 after the death of his father Kim Jong-il, has a severe anxiety problem. The last time I talked about Kim Jong-un on this site, it was about his “endorsement” of Donald Trump. But, just like how Donald Trump’s campaign is appearing more desperate, it’s been announced that the North Korean dictator is having some problems, too.

    What Orlando Proves About Misconceptions of Terrorism

    We live in a society that has beat the dead horse in a sense when it comes to the word “terrorism”. Ever since 9/11, our American senses have been short-shocked to imagine religion in the form of Islam to be the only form of “terrorism”. This is a horrendous misconception, with Americans going as far as completely ignoring domestic terrorism right before their very eyes because “the suspect doesn’t look like what we’ve been told a terrorist is.”

    Thailand’s Tiger Temple

    At least forty dead tiger cubs have been found stuffed in a freezer at the infamous, controversial Tiger Temple in Thailand. Accused of wildlife trafficking and severe animal abuse, the Buddhist temple was raided by police officers who removed all the living tigers from the exhibit. Pictures quickly made their way to social media, where the world’s heart sank at the sight of the forty cubs lined up on the floor.

    BREAKING NEWS: The Panama Papers

    We’re living in journalistic history, people. A massive, anonymous leak of financial documents from a Panamanian law firm has revealed an extensive and global network of offshore and rather illegal “shell” companies. In an era of history in which progressivism is on the rise and revolution dawns the mindsets of many different countries, we’ve just uncovered a massive scheme which allows the wealthy to hide all assets from taxes and to create laundering monopolies of billions in cash.

    BREAKING NEWS: Terror in Brussels

    A series of explosions throughout Brussels have killed multiple people. Two blasts occurred at the city’s airport at around eight am local time, killing at least ten people and injuring thirty more. Another blast at a subway station, near the European Union offices, came shortly afterwards. All metro stations in the city have been closed, and Belgium is now under lock down.
