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.

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’m not happy with this. It’s not cool, it’s not hip, it’s not worth anything. It’s some fad that’s going to take the internet by storm and stay there to remain a sociological “slang” in our culture. I guarantee we’ll start seeing emoji quotes everywhere, because of the importance of finding loopholes in character limits mixing with pure and sheer laziness.

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.

Progressive mayors took the lead in many key urban cities – such as Cleveland, Toledo, and Los Angeles. Progressive representatives and senators quickly made their way into Congress, allowing for a more represented government to shape before the one-percent’s eyes. Progressives sought to enable the citizenry to rule more directly and circumvent political bosses, and through this race for government reformation they were able to leave a dent on how Americans worked.

On January 7th, 2015, a mass shooting of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, carried out by two Islamist gunmen who identified themselves as radical Al-Qaeda members from Yemen. These two men, brothers by the names of Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, along with a third gunman and close friend by the name of Amedy Coulibaly, were responsible for the largest terror attack in France since the June 1961 Vitry-Le-François train bombing which killed twenty-eight and injured 100+. The saddening fact is the Charlie Hebdo shootings weren’t going to be the most deadly attack on French soil in 2015.

The world of science starts on an incredible platform this year after four new elements were added to the Periodic table. These four new elements, finally completing the table’s seventh row, are the first to be added since 2011, when elements 114 (Flerovium) and 116 (Livermorium) were added. Now that the world’s science textbooks have been instantly rendered out of date with the labeling of these four elements, the Periodic table has completed its seventh row after decades of scientific research. But what exactly are these four new elements with placeholder names, and what could their names be? After all, we’ll be seeing them in every chemistry book to be printed in the future!

A recent poll has shown several shocking numbers since the Ukraine invasions and conflict. For the first time in six years, Russian President Vladimir Putin has figures of over eighty percent when it comes to national approval. Even more impressive when it comes to national numbers, it is the first time since 2010 that his approval rating is over seventy percent.
