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.

    DeVostating the Education System

    Conservatism is at it again with attempts to destroy the public education system.

If you've been living under a rock (or perhaps inside a nuclear…

    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…

    The History of America: New England Puritans

    Puritan is a complex term, and was not meant as a compliment in this time period. Puritan refers to England’s most radical protestants, people who were upset with Queen Elizabeth for being too lenient towards Catholics. Although Queen Elizabeth had no love or respect for Catholics, as she saw them as a threat to her realm, she did embrace Catholic ways of thinking. This can be noted by the Church of England’s adoption of the 39 Articles of Religion. She allowed the church to regain catholic governmental structure, including bishops and aristocrats. And in 1559, The Book of Common Prayer, the Church of England’s book, used enough catholic language to make radical protestants, who loved their kingdom of England but loved their religion just a bit more, very uncomfortable.
