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…

I dislike Tim Kaine. In fact, I despise Tim Kaine. If I had to put all of the contenders of Clinton’s VP shortlist in a list of my own, I would have put Tim Kaine in last place by a mile. He, despite what the media is trying to beat into the news, is NOT a progressive. He’s far from it. He just recently changed his course on the TPP, has been campaigning for bank deregulation, and is yet another thing wrong with Clinton’s campaign.

If Trump stays “to the left” of Clinton on foreign policy and trade – even if he’s lying through his fucking teeth about his platform (which he is) – he will win the election. Many Democrats have a God Complex going on right now. They think Clinton against Trump will be a cakewalk. As multiple polls have shown, it’s going to be a back and forth. Hillary Clinton, don’t be link your logo: don’t go to the right.

So, with that in mind, Hillary Clinton’s VP nominee might be what completely dominates the election in November…or it may be what allows even more progressives and independents to swing towards either vote for Trump or not vote at all. Many Clinton supporters can’t believe this fact, but a Vice Presidential failure on the Clinton ticket could very well effectively kill her momentum: a tragic end to the establishment success story in this election season. So, lets break down some of the names she’s been floating around as her possible Vice President. Here are Hillary Clinton’s possible Vice Presidents.

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.

I have loved the analogy of comparing the demoralized and destructed Republican Party to a Five Ring Republican Circus for as long as I can recall researching our current politics. We don’t have a strong-right anymore. Nor do we have a strong left. The internal pendulum of American politics has found itself in a predicament: it’s shifted to the right severely, but the right has splintered off into oblivion. What do our politics look like? Well…

Today’s the day, ladies and gentlemen! The first real primaries that actually show us a trend in national politics. The Iowa Caucus isn’t really a primary, it’s a Republican circle jerk for who is the most religious of them all. In 2008 Huckabee won, in 2012 Santorum won, and in 2016 Cruz won. So, yeah, we all know what happens to the people elected in Iowa on the Republican side: they don’t win. They’re usually Pastor-In-Chiefs who are “too religious” for a general election. On the Democratic side, on the other hand, Iowa seemed to give up. A literal tie that was solved with a coin flip (I guess money can buy anything in politics), we didn’t really learn anything. Here are my predictions…

I’ve been saying this since day one, and I’ll keep saying it until he fades into political oblivion: Marco Rubio is a terrible, horrendously bad politician. He’s an empty suit, a shell of a man who does whatever the establishment hand up his rear tells him to do. He’s a terrible Senator, and he’s done absolutely nothing for my home state of Florida in the six years we’ve seen him in the Senate. I, personally, put several Republicans above him: including but not limited to Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Rand Paul…you’re starting to get the picture here. I don’t really like those guys, I just put them higher than Rubio. I think the only Republicans I’d put lower than Marco Rubio on my list are Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and people like Mike Huckabee.

The American obsession with money has been present throughout our history. The media — whether it be news networks like CNN or entertainment channels like MTV — teach our society that greed is good. We’re force-fed wealthy propaganda, seeing stories and advertisements for the “best cars”, “most expensive colognes and perfumes”, “great shoes”. People proudly show off their wealth on television, a nonstop wave of new-age Hollywood movies glorify the lifestyles of the elite men and women of America, and American politics have proven time and time again that money is behind anything. Then we have the dreaded Powerball lottery.

In modern America, the video game industry makes a whopping $22.41 billion dollars annually. The idea of entertainment, especially at our fingertips, has rapidly expanded into our everyday lives to create new advancements in technology, design, and (of course) corporate profits. With new platforms such as the mobile industry and ever-growing consoles taking control of the aspects of consumer entertainment, video games are becoming more and more prominent in our society. The video game industry has forced itself into our lives.
