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. Disclaimer: this post…

Alfred Leslie Rowse, oftentimes shortened to A. L. Rowse, is best known for his work on England under Queen Elizabeth I’s reign as monarch. He was born on December 4th, 1903, in Cornwall. Mr. Rowse is the perfect example of a man of greatness born against all odds, as both his mother and father lived…

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.…

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…

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…

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…

Student loans are becoming a major issue for the economy, and Donald Trump has inherited a country with an expansive and rapidly expanding student loan problem. In a capitalistic society, debt becomes a mountain of monetary problems. The public sector has fallen into an abysmal state - one that has been forced into chains by private…

Now that evangelical Ted Cruz is out of the Republican race, we have to wonder where all that support will go. With 546 delegates claimed by the Cruz camp and the Republican nomination down to the presumptive and destructive Donald Trump and 1-for-38 John Kasich, the Cruz camp is going to have to go somewhere.

Let me wake up the criminal Cruz Crew. We’re talking about a religious, evangelical zealot that puts Mike Huckabee to God’s shame. Ted Cruz is ignorant, a literal unconstitutional conservative hiding behind the constitution itself, a document he’s probably read as many times as he’s read his hypocritical Holy book: zero times. He’s been playing with the minds of voters like a psychopathic freak since day one of his campaign, falsely comparing himself to Ronald Reagan (who wouldn’t be able to classify himself as a Republican in this modern day, strained Five Ring Republican Circus) and repeatedly calling voters that were openly for other candidates to “inform” them that their candidate was dropping out and that they should vote for, you guessed it, Ted Cruz.

Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, the Canadian-born American Senator from Texas, has made leaps and bounds in the late stages of the 2016 Republican primaries. The very first to jump into the crowded clown car of the race, Ted Cruz is (essentially) the 2016 equivalent to 2008’s Huckabee and 2012’s Santorum. That’s right, he’s not an actual politician. He’s a joke candidate. Not one of entertainment values, like Donald Trump, but of his so-far-right religious extremism and radical intentions revolving around, well, faith and fear.
