    I went back for a 3 hour visit to my old middle school&nbsp;Friday. I asked about 100 students why the were off Monday.&nbsp;10%&nbsp; knew it had something to do with Veterans; 5% knew why it is a National holiday. | &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Monday is the day we remember those millions who gave their lives in the service of this country.

    The only creature on this Earth that ever looks forward to change is a wet baby. It may not male sense, but when did anything else:)

  • re: anyone know who came up with such an asinine strategy?

    I know, I know! It was some idiot teacher back when I was in fourth grade in the 1940's. This idiot actually believed that thoughtful repetition and practice can be helpful for spelling, math, and vocabulary. The key part of this is that none of us kids, in the history of the world, ever were actually thoughtful. Hell, we were nine years old, ...

  • re: Treatment of POW's

    Maybe a better question would be is it time we taught Americans that war is not a movie. In the last 40 years, so few American's have served in the armed forces that, as a people we have almost no experience regarding the reality of war. &nbsp; &nbsp; War is are horror. The first requirement for survival on a battlefield, any battlefield in the ...

  • Response: Mayor Cory Booker's, A Hard Look at Education, on Huffington Post

    Wonderful article Mayor. Fixing education in America is easy. All that is needed is to go back to insisting on parental responsibility and Classroom teacher support. Really, it is just that easy. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Insist that parents provide the public school system with a child that can function in public education environment. or ...

    &nbsp;The Really bad thing about this is that with colleagues and kids it is so often the quiet, willing, steady worker that always &quot;Gets the job really well with no fanfare that get &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &quot;Overlooked.&quot; &nbsp;Common courtesy dictates collegiality with in the work place, but Leadership ...

  • re: Making a Difference

    Hmmmmm. I don't know, John. I never cared much about attitude as long as they worked and didn't bother other students who where trying to work. Maybe parents have become so permissive that there are npw kids that &quot;cop an attitude&quot; with adults. I got that from individuals some times, but never from a class.

  • re: Making a Difference

    &nbsp; &nbsp; I always found that the teachers who were the most effective class controller use the same skills I admire in strong parents. That is &quot;love&quot; and lots of it. Kids who know they are loved and cared for (Heck, not just kids, any group of &quot;People&quot;) always respond more positively to being disciplined that to being ...

  • re: Student Driven Reading #7

    It really is all about trust. For some reason most teaching communities do seem to develop a &quot;You can't trust kids&quot; culture. The process kind of works like this for the kind of kid you describe. 1. &quot;I don't read. I really hate books and reading?&quot; 2. &quot;Okay son, (It's almost always a boy) then to just is there and do ...

  • re: Football and Friendship

    &quot;Pansy,&quot; NO, just kidding. &nbsp;&quot;I don't think we're meant to be competitors, constantly battling to win;&quot; (However, the situations in which I have taught and coached learning to win was not about the game. It was about learning the skills and determination to survive in life.) &nbsp; &quot;rather, I feel we are meant ...
