    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…

    No, The Earth Isn't Flat. Idiots.

    When I first heard people were discussing this topic on social media, I thought it was a hoax. I thought it was one of those sarcastic troll hashtags that were being used sarcastically. Then the truth hit me. People are this stupid. People are this incoherently unattached to the world of science and history. People are so dense, so ignorant, so pathetically unintelligent, that they believe that the Earth is flat.

    Oregon Under Attack: No, an Armed Militia is NOT “PEACEFUL Protesting”

    We couldn’t even go an entire week in 2016 without something bat-shit crazy happening in America, couldn’t we. For a nation that is supposedly the “land of the free” we see a lot of these news stories. At least 372 mass shootings occurred within the United States in 2015, making it “The Year of Mass Shootings”. Due to these 372 mass shootings, 475 people were killed and 1,870 were injured.

    Ben Carson’s Hands Can’t Heal His Campaign

    Not only do you know absolutely nothing about American (and German) history, you’ve tended to forget your own. You grew up in a poor family, raised by a single mother and public housing. You were fed with food stamps, kept healthy with Medicaid, received your first pair of eyeglasses from state agencies, benefited from affirmative action to enter undergraduate school, used federal loans and grants from PELL to pay off your student debt… Yet you’re against all of those things. You’re against food stamps, Medicaid, state agencies, public housing, government intervention with education, federal loans and grants. How are you running as a Republican?
