Readings: Keeping It In Perspective

I ... followed a golden rule that whenever a published fact, a new observation or thought came across me, which was opposed to my general results, to make a memorandum of it without fail and at once; for I had found by experience that such facts and thoughts were far more apt to escape from memory than favorable ones. Owing to this habit, very few objections were raised against my views that I had not at least noticed and attempted to answer.

Charles Darwin, 1958, quoted in Wiggins and McTighe's "Understanding By Design," 2005 p. 96.


  1. While I listened to you and my husband discuss politics I was trying to remember the title of the book about the education system I've been reading. It's called The Death and Life of the American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education by Diane Ravitch. She worked under both Bush (H.W.) and Clinton. I haven't gotten very far so I can't really give you a review, but her background includes studying the history of America's public schools, so maybe up your alley?

  3. Today, I ωent to the beachfгont wіth my kiԁs.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughteг
    and ѕaid "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put thе shell to
    hеr eаг and screamed. Τhere
    was a hermit crab insiԁe and it pinched her eaг.
    She never wаnts to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
    I had to tеll sοmeone!

    The second option is to use headphones as you probably did at the gym
    in the past. Menopause weight gain is not inevitable,
    but it can be more difficult to maintain a healthy weight as
    your metabolism slows.

    the process. One of my favorite ones is where the thanksgiving turkey is hiding from a guy, who apparently wants to get him in the oven,
    by placing a lampshade on his head and standing on a dresser so
    he looks like a lamp. Use old fabric to create puppets, monsters, and any other creatures
