Digital Revolution

April 23, 2007

We are in the midst of a digital revolution and quite frankly it is scary. We are truly treading into new and untested waters. People might say that we have already gone through this but I don’t think that it truthful. Sure cassette tapes changed [Keep Reading]

Fiction Writing – Where Does It Come From?

April 20, 2007

I just finished writing Chapter 12 of my novel and I introduced a new character in it. I wasn’t planning on having this character in my story. In my mind, I had a rough idea of where I was going with the story and I had already introduced the [Keep Reading]

Secret Origins

April 19, 2007

When I was a teenager I got a spiral notebook in a dollar store. I paid for it myself and deliberately picked it out because it was divided into three subjects or sections. One section was to be for poetry, one was to be for rough notes, and the [Keep Reading]

Global Warming Myth

April 18, 2007

We need myths to help us understand things that we are not meant to understand. Myths serve a real purpose. It doesn’t bother me that myths exist that run contrary to what I believe. Anything that helps another person make sense of their life and [Keep Reading]

Radio Theatre

April 17, 2007

Last night was a first for me and for my students as well. We went to the community radio station and took over the airwaves for an hour. It was a great experience that started from a small idea earlier in the year. I tried doing reader’s theatre [Keep Reading]

Societal Problem. We’ve Gone Astray.

April 13, 2007

Yesterday Don Imus lost his job. The world is safe again. The interesting thing about this media blitz is that I don’t think it is really that big an issue. Don Imus said something on the airwaves that offended people. He said it in a joking [Keep Reading]

Gender, Race, and Colour

April 12, 2007

Class sizes and demographics change every year. Schools try to keep the number of boys and girls in classes relatively the same. Last year I had 11 boys and 13 girls in my class. 5 of those students were black, 2 were white, and the rest were East [Keep Reading]

To Journal or not to Journal?

April 11, 2007

I have written a journal now for several years and I find it hard to continue to write it. I used to write in it a lot. I used to pour out my deepest feelings into it and was brutally honest about a lot of things. Maybe I was too honest. I had a [Keep Reading]

Depth Perception

April 10, 2007

One thing I can’t figure out is our stereoscopic vision. I have read a bit about this subject and understand that our two eyes combine their separate images into one three-dimensional picture. This makes sense to me. What I don’t understand is [Keep Reading]
