Repost of Day 45/67: Five Month GED, Community Colleges, and, Local Laws — Inspiring Critical Thinking via Lesson Plans

Aside from simplifying mathematical roots, Adulting often involves simplifying the roots of complex social and logical problems, too.  Seeing through false arguments, distinguishing red herrings from truth, finding the root cause of a situation, all require logical and persistent thinking, developed by mathematics.   Community colleges are one good place to learn these skills. […]

Library Book Review: Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, By Howard Gardner

I read this for my MAT in 2002, alongside Theodore Sizer’s book about the Coalition of Essential Schools.   Both inspired me to work on constructivist lesson plans for my classes, this past twenty years.  Should be read by all people who want to learn or to teach. In other words, this book should be read by everyone.
He posited nine types of intelligence, which have been condensed by teaching courses into three categories: Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic.  As a K, I tend to try harder to work that style into my lesson plans, but it was never easy.

This is an excellent book to read for almost any kind of work.

   Continuing Education is crucial to our republic, and to our future.  Reading and critical thinking on the work like this is crucial to how we vote, as well, in the immediate term.  Over the long term, empathy, built through tools like free adult education, probono legal aid, and #languagelearning, is crucial.  DoBetterCover

We really can Do Better.

Legal Learning, GED/HiSET Lesson Plan Day 37/67, and Ancient Greek?

Adapting requires many different types of flexibility as with Day 37/67, Five Month GED, adaptations, and Adulting.
chameleon-in-green-color-adaptation_04
     Studying, or even mere exposure to, various languages helps people to become and to stay flexible both intellectually and even emotionally (in learning to see from other perspectives).
Adapting to a changing climate theme2-adaptation and world

are all crucial to the democratic process, as well.

Language exposure is known to increase adaptability, but why, then, have we abandoned the teaching of classic historical languages that explain the bases of western society, like Ancient Greek and Hebrew?  How can one adapt to changing situations without knowing how things got to be this way, and how can that be understood without some modicum of understanding of the originating ways of thinking that got us to this point?  A language, especially one which has been studied by those considered to be ‘cultured’ for many years, is important to understand at least in passing, no?  Or at the very least, Biblical Hebrew as a reference for a non-Indo-European language family, and modern Greek as a reference for much of the modern anglophone vocabulary.  These studies would provide a leg up for most of the standardized testing, and much more understanding of how differently others see the world, through the lens of different grammatical frameworks.
Or, Turkish?

Phase I of Project Do Better begins by encouraging both language learning and legal learning, for the long term benefit of society and individuals.
