Not Really Off the Topic
Just a quick posting to let you know that Monday, October 15 is Blog Action Day and the theme is environmental issues. Please be sure to check back. You can participate just by subscribing to this blog.
Also, you will notice this widget in the right column. This is my challenge to you. It is called Learning from the Living. To maintain a balance in the present, we need to learn from the past in order to look to the future. Giving students the opportunity to learn by interacting with history is a way to do this. When students meet those who were directly involved with events that make us who we are, it not only teaches them the basics but it teaches them responsibility, that their actions are large and do have meaning.
I am raising $311 for the purchase of digital voice recorders for a rural school in North Carolina who is doing a project the invokes the spirit of the above paragraph. Please help support this.
