    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…

    Shut the Hell Up, Hillary Won’t Be Indicted

    There is absolutely no logical reason to believe for a moment that Hillary Clinton will be indicted for her damn emails. This notion is starting to develop into Benghazi 2.0, something anti-Hillary bots will be chanting about for decades. If Clinton wins the election, we’ll be hearing conservatives along with Bernie Bros will be calling for her arrest three years into her first term.

    Three Years of Blogging

    It’s been three years since I’ve started this “journey”. Although I’ve been writing on websites for three years now, the amount of content I post has only just recently exploded. I’d just like to thank some of the people that have been reading my stuff for a while now. Robert Horvat, Sean Munger, Ken Lohatepanont, Elliot Declet, Michael Andoscia, and Blog Liberally have earned these spots!

    The AR-15: It’s Time For Gun Reform

    The AR-15 is a rifle that is primarily used in a military setting that has trickled it’s way down into civilian usage. Known to the military as the M16 and referee exclusively as an AR-15 in civilian models, the gun — a weapon of mass murder — is located center field in several mass shootings and homicide. The AR-15 is lightweight, gas-operated, magazine-fed, and air-cooled. Quick to move with and easy to take apart, sophisticatedly controlled, and capable of churning out magazine after magazine of bullets, the weapon is something you’d expect to find primarily on the battlefield.

    What Orlando Proves About Misconceptions of Terrorism

    We live in a society that has beat the dead horse in a sense when it comes to the word “terrorism”. Ever since 9/11, our American senses have been short-shocked to imagine religion in the form of Islam to be the only form of “terrorism”. This is a horrendous misconception, with Americans going as far as completely ignoring domestic terrorism right before their very eyes because “the suspect doesn’t look like what we’ve been told a terrorist is.”

    The Emoji Bible: Perpetuating Bullshit

    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.

    The History of America: The Birth of American Culture

    While the new American settlers were busy growing tobacco and building city churches in their new environment, European immigrants who moved to America didn’t cease being or wanting to be Europeans. In fact, they wanted to reshape their new homes and cities into what they had left behind in Europe instead of attempting to create their own new society. American culture didn’t actually exist at this time, as a majority of what could be considered culture in the new world was brought from other countries.

    Thailand’s Tiger Temple

    At least forty dead tiger cubs have been found stuffed in a freezer at the infamous, controversial Tiger Temple in Thailand. Accused of wildlife trafficking and severe animal abuse, the Buddhist temple was raided by police officers who removed all the living tigers from the exhibit. Pictures quickly made their way to social media, where the world’s heart sank at the sight of the forty cubs lined up on the floor.
