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…

As I’ve been discussing for the past few months, Americans are currently witnessing the end of an era for political elitism. The 2016 election cycle will go down in history as unprecedented; as concerning as the rise of Hitler during downdraught Germany and as destructive as the fall of Constantinople in 1453 was to the Roman

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.

It’s done. It’s over. Bernie Sanders has announced his endorsement for Hillary Clinton; and with that, the Democratic primaries are officially at an end. I watched live as Bernie Sanders unofficially announced his campaign last April, I paid for a shirt in the first shipment sent from his Vermont headquarters, and I watched him completely demolish Hillary Clinton in each debate online. I’ve Felt the Bern for many reasons since the very beginning. But now? #ImWithHer.

The 2016 Democratic Party Platform’s latest initial draft has been announced, and you can read it and download it here. I encourage everyone to read the thirty nine page draft. We may be entering a Second Gilded Age; but that will be determined by what ideology wins over the core of the Democratic Party and who wins the White House this November.

Consider this an open letter to anyone who may be reading this. Whether you be a progressive, a centrist, or a radical…I direct this towards not only Bernie Sanders, but towards any active political member of American democracy. Keep this message in mind as we exist the last stages of the primary season and head full speed into the most unfavorable general election in history.

Basically every candidate in this election cycle has found themselves involved within the Latino community. In some states, such as California and Texas, Latinos make up over 28% of the popular vote. A record 27.3 million Latinos will be eligible to vote in the 2016 presidential elections, making it a pressing political concern to make positive relations with the Hispanic communities across America. That comes to the topic of the day: hispandering in the 2016 election cycle.

Let me say it loud and clear: Hillary Clinton is his election’s Woodrow Wilson at this moment. A candidate who personally is not as progressive as you would like to think, but would literally listen to a progressive movement in order to keep her party happy. But, if Bernie Sanders were to either run as an Independent (which he won’t), be written in by his #BernieOrBust fans, or let his voters refuse to vote for a Clinton campaign — the election would be swapped. Clinton would no longer be the victorious Wilson, she would be left in the dust with a low turn out rate or split vote as the 2016 equivalent to William Howard Taft.

Stardew Valley is an incredible game not only for its gameplay but for the sociological impact it has within its choices. If you’re into video games, especially of this genre, you need to ignore this review and just go pick it up for $15 on Steam like right now. Seriously, don’t spoil yourself. This post contains spoilers for the game, obviously. However, I’ll try to give as few spoilers as possible, so expect some details to be rather vague.

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.
