Taking Time and Learning

“Take time to think, for this is the source of power. Take time to work that you may know the joy of success. Take time to leave the world a better place, for only then will you truly appreciate the journey of life.” Life in the 21st century does not always lend itself to taking time. Since leaving Abington Friends School, I have been taking time to write. In recent days, I have... read more

Cultural Bias in Online College Courses: This Inequity in Higher Education Should Anger Everyone

My emerging tutoring passion is assisting ESL college students with their coursework. Most of them must also hold full-time jobs to support themselves and often their families as well.

Do textbook publishing companies realize how much cultural bias is written into their online ancillary... read more

Morocco

I recently returned from two weeks in Morocco. It was truly a life changing and eye opening experience for me. The rural areas of Morocco are beautiful. The desert mountains littered with trees, the quilted patchwork farms of corn, cactus, and gourds. The people are beautiful too, in their long flowing robes, hitchhiking in the desert heat, or riding donkeys on the side of the road.... read more

Memorization as a Creative Process

In previous posts, I wrote a bit about memorization and how we may be shying away from it too much. We are throwing the baby out with the bathwater, as they say. Education needs to be about much more than rote memorization, but having memorized facts and vocabulary at your disposal is also part of being an educated person. I've also found in my tutoring experience that students who have not... read more
