East Meets West: Transcontinental Chat Magic

Shiver me timbers! When could be more entertaining that a dress up party for the launch of the first transcontinental NYEDChat and TLAP online chat last night. It may not have been the Golden Globes or the Bammy Awards, but it was a celebratory event just the same.  The lead pirate, Dave Burgess, author of the well-know professional text, Teach Like A…

Invisible

Last night at the Grammy Awards, Hunter Hayes debuted his new single, "Invisible."  What a great song for young people experiencing bullying, or just trying to fit in.  Even though "No-Name Calling Week" is officially over, you still may want to share this with your students.

Spiritual people should oppose Education Establishment

I just put an important article (at least I think it is) on American Thinker. The title is “Public Schools versus Christianity.”

In the first day the article got 125 comments, which is a good thing. The bad thing is that a lot of these comments are concerned with supporting or attacking Christianity.

The 'Tiger Mom' Superiority Complex

From time to time, every Indian American finds an email in his or her inbox, wearing a font of many colors, like the one my grandfather once sent me: "Take a Pride--Being an Indian. 38% of Doctors in U.S.A. are Indians. 36% of NASA employees are…

Krokodil, and damages seen and unseen

When I first heard about krokodil, and the horrific damage it does to addicts, I started thinking about the damage done to children by dysfunctional teaching methods.

You might think, isn’t that a stretch? The physical damage done by krokodil is so obvious and horrific, you might want to think it’s in a category by itself. Can this obvious physical damage be compared to the hidden cognitive damage done by…
