"I have experienced a class just like the one you described. It was the longest hour and a half of my life. I remember NOTHING from the class except for the sound of the Professor's voice. Interactive learning keeps students engaged in what they…"
"I think that conversational learning is easier as well. When a teacher just lectures it's easy to get distracted, or zone out. But conversational learning is more interactive so you feel engaged in the class and it is much easier to grasp…"
"I love this teaching technique. I can't tell you how many tests I've passed from cramming the facts and quickly reciting it onto the paper, but then forgetting it the second I turned it in. One year, I had a math Professor that…"
"Was I the only one who had never heard of these people? Well your powerpoint taught me something knew! I had no idea where they were located or who they were. I like Guise Dancing tradition. Sounds like a good time! Also their game of Hurling sounds…"
"I agree with you, I don't think that so much should weigh on the results of ONE test. It's scary for a 3rd grader to know that if they don't pass the FCAT that year they won't go to the next grade. Thats a ridiculous amount of…"

"I had no idea Judaism is one of the oldest religions, that's crazy! One of my Professors practiced Judaism very strictly, he had never had a piece of bacon in his life. He also wouldn't eat off a plate that had ever had any pork on…"
"I couldn't agree more. I think if you're going to celebrate one you should celebrate all. Or at least have a little lesson plan set up for each of them. I am totally with you that under ever circumstance the teachers personal views should…"
"Lindsay, I don't think the question is how do you not mention religion, but how do you do it without offending anyone? I feel like if only the facts are shared with children there is no harm done. As long as the teacher doesn't push that a…"
"I remember as a kid in elementary school everyone looked forward to holidays throughout the year. It's a little break from the every day routine for the child, and a way to teach about culture even though the kids may not even realize. I think…"
"I love your analogy! That's so true. Kids sometimes just need that extra push to see that the end is near. I know that OJT is a great way to help kids stay in school. It helps them get out of the classroom setting, and can also help the kids…"
