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…

The Broletariat Podcast is a completely unscripted and unedited (and possibly incoherent) podcast consisting of Joseph Kaminski, Elijah Hintz, and Omar Wajeeh. We are not communists; the logo is supposed to be clever and ironic – which it is! In reality, Joe and Elijah are progressive Democrats and Omar is more of a leftist centrist…hated by

We must not propagate Barack Obama’s eight year tenure as President until we understand the consequences behind everything in his term. Democrats – do not shout about how 44 was the “greatest president in recent memory” just yet. Republicans – do not refer to how 44 was the “worst president in American history” just yet…or

It appears to be that 2017 will be the start of severe political discourse. As I’ve discussed previously on this website, the self-proclaimed “Alt-Right” is a rising force in American politics that has finally made its way into White House briefings. It is important for all Americans to realize the true nature of “Alt-Right” behavior

Let me explain Hillary’s Health in a historical sense. The concept of attacking a presidential candidate over their physical (or in Trump’s case, mental) health isn’t something new. However, if you take a look at American history, it hasn’t been quite uncommon for presidents and vice presidents to make their way to the White House with incredible ailments you wouldn’t believe of.

If you, like Donald Trump, haven’t read the United States Constitution: now’s your chance to do so for free. Although you can get digital copies for free online thanks to the freedom of information, the ACLU is generously offering everyone a free copy of the pocket edition for the United States Constitution (usually five dollars) from now until Election Day.

The delegates at the Republican National Convention applauded for the security – ironically, perhaps the only men allowed to be carrying guns during the convention – for much longer than Reince Priebus’s declared “moment of silence” for the slain officers. So, a very quick, brief moment of silence is given to officers who were slain by deadly weapons. Then the men keeping the delegates at the convention safe, perhaps (almost certainly) carrying deadly weapons receive a long, loud round of applause.

The GOP Convention is starting the way anyone could assume it would have, with chairman Reince Priebus asking for a “brief moment of silence” for specifically the “officers slain” in previous days – specifically citing Baton Rouge and Dallas. The convention basically starts with a leading Republican figure shouting out #BlueLivesMatter! How the hell are independents and Democrats supposed to hear this? It truly shows that the Republican Party is backing away from their previous stance of “All Lives Matter”, which is completely and utterly flawed in argument concepts to begin with, to enforce authoritative ideologies.

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.

Back when #DeleteYourAccount gained media attention despite being an internet meme for years because of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump erupted into a little temper tantrum. The best part about that whole kerfuffle was that Hillary Clinton probably didn’t even know about it until the news started reporting on it, but it consumed Trump’s every waking moment for the next sixteen speeches and thirty scheduled tweets. Of course, that’s speculation – but it’s well-deserved and well-placed analysis as well. So, who runs Trump’s Twitter?
