    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…

    Professionalizing History 4: Howard Zinn and the War Against American History

    I’d like to thank anyone who gave me their thoughts and opinions (in person or through email) about the first three installments of this Professionalizing History series. In the last installment, Part 3, I discussed the differences between empathizing and sympathizing with history, referring to an incredible conversation overheard in the hallway one morning. If you

    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.

    Happy 103rd Birthday to Richard Nixon

    Nixon is an interesting case, making him one of my personal favorite Presidents. While most people tend to despise Nixon, I look at him differently, and through my research I’ve yet to find sufficient enough reasoning for him to go down in history as despicable. Most people, if you go around asking, can only say one thing about Nixon’s presidency: Watergate. I’m sorry, but if you’re only historically aware of Nixon’s position in Watergate, then you really aren’t qualified to judge a five-year political reign.
