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.

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…

If you would have told me this time last year that Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders were going to debate over the topic of Obamacare, I would have leaped for joy. I was a very strong supporter for Bernie Sanders and a very strong mocker of Ted Cruz during the 2016

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.

So, with that in mind, Donald Trump’s VP nominee might be what completely changes the course of his “unelectable” and “doomed from the start” campaign. Many Democrats don’t believe Trump could ever possibly beat either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, but an outstanding Vice Presidential candidate on the Trump ticket could very well effectively attract Bernie or Bust voters while simultaneously splitting the Democratic Party. So, let’s break down some of the possible names that Trump has either considers or might very well have on his desk at Trump Tower. Here are Donald Trump’s possible Vice Presidents.

The evangelical candidates are like cicadas in a sense. They’re super annoying and scream loudly for an election cycle, and then they die off really fast. Huckabee no longer matters, Santorum is more irrelevant now than he’s ever been, and Cruz is following suit after only lasting in this race long enough because of Donald Trump. In either 2020 or 2024, Ted Cruz will run again. He’ll run for president again, thinking he has a chance at victory just like Huckabee and Santorum think they themselves do. And guess what — just like Huckabee and Santorum before him, Ted Cruz will NEVER do as well as he did his first time around. The evangelical vote has a weird thing about failures when it comes to their candidates, and they’ll turn to someone new before ever dawning the Cruz Crew button on their Sunday’s Best.

Now that evangelical Ted Cruz is out of the Republican race, we have to wonder where all that support will go. With 546 delegates claimed by the Cruz camp and the Republican nomination down to the presumptive and destructive Donald Trump and 1-for-38 John Kasich, the Cruz camp is going to have to go somewhere.

Let me wake up the criminal Cruz Crew. We’re talking about a religious, evangelical zealot that puts Mike Huckabee to God’s shame. Ted Cruz is ignorant, a literal unconstitutional conservative hiding behind the constitution itself, a document he’s probably read as many times as he’s read his hypocritical Holy book: zero times. He’s been playing with the minds of voters like a psychopathic freak since day one of his campaign, falsely comparing himself to Ronald Reagan (who wouldn’t be able to classify himself as a Republican in this modern day, strained Five Ring Republican Circus) and repeatedly calling voters that were openly for other candidates to “inform” them that their candidate was dropping out and that they should vote for, you guessed it, Ted Cruz.

Cruz himself has admitted that there is absolutely no mathematical path to victory when it comes to this election, and that he is literally hoping to steal the election in a Republican contested convention this summer. He’s desperately trying to pick up as many remaining votes as possible, in an attempt to sway female conservatives and brain-dead, far-right evangelicals who were considering to bail ship and vote for Trump. It’s a thinly veiled cloud of desperation from the Cruz camp, picking a candidate incredibly close to his ideals as a last ditch effort to get attention in the late primary cycle. Let me break it easily for Cruz: it doesn’t matter what he does, it’s far too late.

This last ditch effort to lead the Republican Party to a contested convention was announced by both Cruz and Kasich within mere minutes of each other. According to their statements, Cruz is focusing his efforts on Indiana, the home of the second iteration of the Ku Klux Klan and a severely important Republican platform with 57 delegates up for grab, while Kasich hones in on Oregon and New Mexico – two states that equal 52 delegates on the conservative’s side (28 in the former and 24 in the latter).

If you have ever thought of Ted Cruz having a sex life, I greatly pity you. However, the National Enquirer recently alleged that the corrupt conservative has had up to five extramarital affairs. Titled “A HOOKER, A TEACHER & COWORKERS”, the National Enquirer boldly proclaimed that presidential candidate and Texan Senator Ted Cruz has a hidden sex life that greatly goes against the extremist Christian foundations he claims to base his life on.

Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, the Canadian-born American Senator from Texas, has made leaps and bounds in the late stages of the 2016 Republican primaries. The very first to jump into the crowded clown car of the race, Ted Cruz is (essentially) the 2016 equivalent to 2008’s Huckabee and 2012’s Santorum. That’s right, he’s not an actual politician. He’s a joke candidate. Not one of entertainment values, like Donald Trump, but of his so-far-right religious extremism and radical intentions revolving around, well, faith and fear.
