Question

Hi,

I'm Natalie from ForeverCurious. We are a group of educators and libraries who find and create lesson plans and other resources for others. I'm writing to say "thank you" for the enlightening resources you've shared! If you have any ideas for content you'd like to see, please let me know.

I don't know if you've come across these pages, but here are some cool articles I've come across that you might find useful.

Thanks for all you do.

Best,

natalie - USA

Why were Clinton years not good for honesty?

Topic: Bennett Teaching Virtues

Question

March 9, 2017

Why does William Bennett say that the Clinton years were not good years for impressing the virtue of honesty on our kids ?

Lucy - Congo

27934

Answer

Although former President Clinton showed dishonesty during the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, I don't think that Mr. Clinton or people in his administration were basically dishonest.

Mr. Bennett's view of the Clinton years is somewhat biased by his political views, since he is a Conservative Republican and Clinton is a Democrat.

I hope that helps in your understanding. Best wishes for success in your studies.

You can use a digital camera or even your smart phone to take photographs of pictures in books or such. You can then connect to your projector or use a thumb drive to input the pictures.

Question

November 19, 2015

Hello fellow educator!

Can’t believe I’m saying this already, but Happy Holidays! (Where has the time gone?!)

I’ve been a cheerleader for math (and, really, education as a whole) for as long as I can remember (in fact - that’s ultimately why I started my own site: http://www.mathcamps.org/!). Over the last several years, I’ve tutored 100s of students to make math more attainable and fun.

Teaching becomes increasingly difficult during the holiday season when thoughts of sugar-plums are dancing in our students’ heads! :) That’s why I decided to put together a list of resources to help educators keep a classroom full of excited children focused and (hopefully!) ensure that learning still happens during this somewhat chaotic time! :)

Please enjoy! And feel free to share with others (on your site: http://www.school-for-champions.com/algebra/resources.htm, and any other medium you prefer)!

I hope these resources ease this somewhat chaotic time for learning!

Keep Calm and Teach On!

Students and teachers answer questions at random. It is not a formal survey.

Most students entered their opinions in the Good Grades Survey.

Why is Philosophy of Education important?

Topic: Philosophies

Question

May 4, 2015

Why is Philosophy of education important to a school teacher? Give examples

Nothando - Zimbabwe

25973

Answer

There are different views on how to best educate students. It is good for a teacher to know the different techniques and philosophies to be able to apply which is most effective in the opinion of the teacher. But also, school systems select a philosophy to follow, and the teach usually must follow that route.

An example of different philosophies concerns teaching arithmetic. The common way is to have the children memorize the addition and multiplication tables. However, a new philosophy is to teach them more closely related to doing Algebra. This is called "new math" and has created much controversy.

Question

March 23, 2015

My name is Erik Seidenberg and I am an Assistant Director for Summer Study Programs. Summer Study has been running pre-college programs for 25 years and our Penn State program is one of the largest and most successful in the country. We also offer opportunities at The Sorbonne in Paris, Colorado State University, and Fordham University. We offer a great mix of college credit and enrichment courses as well as fun and exciting summer opportunities for teens.
I wanted to reach out to you and inquire about placing a link to our site on your website so we may offer these opportunities to young adults. We believe that taking our classes in the summer not only prepares students for the rigors of college, but puts them in a great position to be accepted in to the college of their dreams. Please let me know if this would be a possibility and if you have some time please check out our website at summerstudy.com. Thank you so much for your time and consideration
