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…

    Babylonian Astronomy

    As long as mankind could ponder the world surrounding them, there’s been a unique interest in looking upwards. Some early societies looked up to the sun, grateful for plentiful harvest and fearing a drought that could end it all. Most, if not all, looked up for a heaven – a paradise that gave comfort after…

    America’s Worst Governors

    Consider this post a denouncement, if you will, for the following Governors of American states that have proven time and time again that they don’t belong in office. From corruption to stupidity, these are the American Governors that should be impeached — or, in the very least, not be re-elected or allowed into political office in the future — in no specific order…

    Democrats, We Need to Unite.

    I will spoil this for you: your third party candidate cannot and will not win in a political bipartisan society dominated by DEMOCRAT and REPUBLICAN. Your write-in of Bernie Sanders will not win against an official DEMOCRATIC nominee with an electoral vote dependent on getting near the White House. A vote for anyone against the Democratic nominee — or an absence of a vote for said Democratic nominee — will lead to four years of Donald J. Trump.

    2016 Is Destroying Historical Precedent

    For those of you that haven’t been following my Twitter account, I’ve been pretty intrigued with calculating possible scenarios and victories for the presidential primaries. I spent a couple weeks spamming predictions and results, but in order to stop a political overflow on my site (I went about a solid month without posting any history, psychology, or sociology because of it), I started doing independent research and county-by-county predictions with a group of friends of mine.

    What Michigan Means For Bernie Sanders

    Bernie Sanders won the Michigan primary — 50 percent to Hillary’s 48 percent. This isn’t something huge, mind you. The delegate count is still far and few in between, with Sanders needing landslide victories in future states to stay afloat. Not a single poll, however, has given Sanders any chance of victory in Michigan. The closest had Clinton leading by five percentage points, but the average poll had her leading 20+. Sanders’s win, as said by FiveThirtyEight (who predicted a less than one percent chance for Sanders to win Michigan), is the greatest polling upset in modern political history.

    Michigan vs Ohio: The Toledo War

    Today, Ohio and Michigan are known as one of the biggest and best rivalries in American football. While fans may think of this sport as war, these two states were on the verge of bloodshed only two centuries ago.
