    On teaching/learning

    After reading the September 1 "readings" I think I finally found an answer to the questions I've had since High School. I've always thought, to myself, that I don't learn the same way others do. Only when I'm motivated, it seems, do I come away with a really good understanding of what I was taught. The method of teaching/learning you are providing seems to channel that motivation to the entire subject. I don't know if that makes any sense. For the reasons in the articles, I've read so far, that is why I disagree with the A.C.T. and how it's a measure of someones knowledge. I don't do well on timed tests, let alone mutiple choice mathematics sections that are timed. Ok ok, I want to say more because I don't know if you know what I mean, but I've passed my 25 words or less. I swear I won't do this anymore, I'm too nervous to say this in class. Ok, back to the readings, and discussion questions.

    tony -- i'm glad that you found the readings helpful. it's a tragedy that so much learning is by "trial and error" and that teachers don't bother to explain teaching/learning to their students. you raise an important question regarding tests and testing and how they are gatekeepers into college, into certain careers, etc.

    On computers

    I am a little fearful but also grateful and excited about the work that you require us to do on the computer. I am not that comfortable with it and this gives me the opportunity I need to get more familiar with it. Thanks

    jennifer -- you're very welcome. learning is about "stretching the corners of your mind." computers are here to stay so the sooner you become more familiar with them, the better off you'll be.

    On the yahoo discussion group

    I'd just like to say at first I wasn't really into the idea of joining the discussion group, but it seems like I changed my mind real fast. I especially enjoy expressing my opinion with others on the topic of what's going on in LA and MS because I have a lot of family down there.

    stefnee -- good! i'm glad. i hope others will join in on the discussions!

    On Life Without Parole

    I just finished chapter 8 for life without Parole and I posted this on Yahoo, but I wanted to tell you how disturbing I found Frank's Case to be, it was truely sad and it really shocked me that this could happen to someone.

    jessica -- i hope that a yahoo group discussion on the Hassine book becomes very active and lively . thanks for starting this discussion topic.

    On Life Without Parole

    in chapter 12 of life without parole I couldn't believe the guards let tony who is HIV positive keep having unprotected sex knowing he has full blown aids infecting everyone he's with.

    jim -- why is this so unbelievable?.

    On the "Butter Battle Book"

    I would just like to say at first I was not too sure about watching the Dr. Seuss movie, but after watching the movie I can rellay see how it relates to whats going on in society today and what we're talking about in class (adversarialism and mutuality). There were two sides who could not get along because they had differences and chose to compete agains each other instead of listening to the Other.

    stefnee -- yes, it pays to keep an open mind.
