(Issue #510) The Third Grader In The Room
Posing questions sets up a vulnerability of sorts. Publicly admitting, “I don’t understand. I need you to help me.” Why? Simple question. Why? Seeking additional information to explain a situation. Why? We have heard young children ask that question as … Continue reading

(#327) Structures for Organization: Implications for Teaching and Training
Just because it was tossed, doesn’t mean it was caught. Just because it was talked, doesn’t mean it was taught. How do you define “learning”? And, what causes it? How much of your schooling exposed you to a stream … Continue reading
(#265) That’s Not Teaching. That’s Talking!
Teaching and learning need to remain inextricably connected. A few weeks ago I had the honor of being placed in the songwriter’s spotlight at the Atlantic Beach (FL) Songwriters’ Night. I was humbled to get the invitation and once I was … Continue reading
(#224) Every Student Has A Story: Great Teachers Build On That Story

(#223) The Longest Movie of Your Life

Student success will be enhanced when we establish an environment of personal validation and respect. [NOTE to reader: This week’s post comes from my forthcoming book (work-in-progress) on mentoring faculty. In the weeks ahead look for posts on this blog that … Continue reading
(#212) Teachers Make a Difference—Everyday!
Think of your favorite teacher, counselor, or advisor. What did she/he do to make a difference? This blog post will be a repeat message for some who follow me on Facebook. It warrants repetition. So thanks for the indulgence I … Continue reading

(#186) Teacher Evaluation: I’m Not A Plumber For A Good Reason!
Just because everyone at one time or another has been in a classroom as a student, that does not make them effective teachers or evaluators. Heck, I use toilets many times each day. That does not make me a plumber! … Continue reading
(#151) “You Could Take All Your Courses From Your Kitchen Table”
Sometimes, however, the simplest—and most effective— thing to do is to go back to the beginning. Back to the start and focus on what works. Veteran teachers know that educational “reform” many times is anything but that. Politicians and bureaucrats … Continue reading
(#141) Reimagining Education for Students and Their Communities
We need a fresh set of eyes on how to make education work for the benefit of the students and the communities in which they live. Arthur Levine and Diane R. Dean’s study of college students over a six-year period … Continue reading
