Why Good Classes Fail - 12 views

  • The problem of why good classes fail has become a bit of an obsession for me lately. I visit several colleges and universities every semester to talk to faculty about teaching and learning, and everywhere I go I try to sneak away for just a bit and slip into the back of an unsuspecting class just to see how things are going.

    So what's wrong? In short, the common thread I see throughout all the failures is quite simply a lack of empathy. There is no authentic encounter with students, or what Martin Buber called "a genuine meeting." When we use all the right methods, and we still fail, it is most likely because we are encountering our students as objects and not as the rich and complex individuals that they are. When we do not bring our authentic selves to the classroom and open up to an authentic encounter with our students and the topic at hand we fail, regardless of the methods we choose.

My History Network - a network of history students from around the world - 7 views

    This is a network for high school history students to share ideas and help each other with their history studies. Just let us know you're a teacher when you join that you're a teacher and we'll give you 'Teacher' privileges. You then can admit and monitor your students while they're on the network.

    Several new members have already joined up for 2010 and early results are very promising. If you're a high school history teacher we'd love to have you and your students along!

    A little self-indulgent, however I'm interested in seeing what other people do with their classes. This is the montage of our recent medieval tournament. We also do an archaeological dig and other historical re-enactments. If anyone else has footage, images or descriptions of activities or re-enactments they do with their classes I'd be really interested to see them. And steal their ideas.

A Tribe Called Next » Blog Archive » BROOKLYN SUPERHERO SUPPLY CO. - 0 views

  • superhero supplies such as; grappling hooks, bottles of chaos and gravity, capes, invisibility paint, jars of anti-matter, secret identity kits, deflector braclets and more.
  • love how the staff treat the products as real superhero supplies and customers as real superheros. They even get you to quote a superhero oath at checkout!
  • This concept store is the brainchild of literary Dave Eggers and like all of our favourite comic book heroes - it has a dual identity. In reality, the store is a clever front for the non-profit (youth orientated) creative writing and tutoring centre, 826NYC. To enter 826NYC, you actually have to go through a swinging bookcase in the BBS store. Proceeds from the BBS store fund 826NYC directly to help young people with their creative writing skills. Amazing. Marc Jacobs and Kenneth Cole have both designed crime-fighting outfits for fundraising events here.
