This was an interesting read for me. One of the things I appreciated most as a history major in college was not learning history- but learning to look at facts, in the past and in the present, in a different light. My analysis skills and critical thinking skills definitely developed as a result- but I was open and eager to work on this. I don’t think colleges today are necessarily lacking in teaching these things, but I encounter many people in general who are less willing to think. How do we add value to critical thinking?
Who I am: A fourth year high school history teacher at an urban(ish) high school in New Jersey.
What I blog about: Stuff related to education I like, and stuff I hope can help other teachers out. Technology, deals on supplies, helpful books. My focus lately is on educational technology & related resources. Occasionally, I also post things related to education reform. Because I post articles that I feel will be of interest to teachers with varying views, the political-related posts made here do not necessarily reflect my beliefs or opinions, nor do they reflect the beliefs of my employer.
What I like learning & reading about: Other teacher's opinions about and experiences with teaching & education. How I can enrich my classroom and reach out to my students. If you write about this stuff, let me know, because I probably want to read it.
What you should submit: Anything that could help a teacher.
