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…

    Sweden vs Russia: Cold War in The Making?

    Sweden maintained a policy of neutrality throughout World War II. Although the fate of the great Scandinavian state was, in the very least, unclear at the beginning of the conflict, Sweden managed to maintain official political neutrality throughout it all. A combination of geopolitical location (the Scandinavian Peninsula proved to be fruitful during this period of global uncertainty) and successful diplomatic factors (realpolitik) during the unpredictable timeline of the Second World War allowed Sweden to sit through, in short, a Cold War.

    Does the World Need a World Policeman?

    If you attempt to argue that America lost this “war”, you would have little to no evidence. While it is true the Soviets in Russia during this time were the first to send a man into space, America was the first to step on the moon, planting the flag and showing superiority to Russia. Eventually, the Cold War fizzled down and America still held tightly onto its position in the world. Twelve presidents later, and America still grips tightly onto the fact that they are the world cop. But should they? Understand the fact that America, in recent times, cannot even keep their own government open.

    Communism: Good or Bad?

    But, just how does Communism attempt to make everyone equal by incorporating economic, social, and political policies? Pure communism, defined simply, can be identified through the classic cow example of looking at political corporations. If you have two cows, then your neighbors help you take care of them, and you all share the milk. However, this is not the case as the original ideas, the promising promises of communism, were erased as governments became overcome by greed. As communism in Russia became more and more, well put, corrupted, it morphed into something much more unfair, and unequal.

    Presentation: The Rise of Richard Nixon

    37th President Richard Nixon’s administration is one of the more interesting parts of American History. From his brash campaign for the senate against Helen Douglas to his cutthroat elections in 1960, 1968, and 1972, Richard Nixon manages to remain one of the more memorable presidents in the 20th century. Of course, everyone remembers Watergate, with polls putting him much lower than he should be based merely on that one topic. History isn’t fading, but the public opinion seems to be limited to one subject. This presentation, based from the A-Leveled AICE curriculum, is on the Rise of Richard Nixon, from his first political foothold in 1945 to his reelection as President of the United States in 1972. This was used in a classroom environment, hence the assignment.
