When “Telling” is Not “Tattling”

About a year ago during recess, I was standing beside our first-grade teacher, Mrs. Knudsen, when a student ran up to her. The child excitedly shared with Mrs. Knudsen all the wrongs another student was currently committing. When the student finished listing all the perceived errors this other student was carrying out during recess, Mrs.…

Getting Answers

As students get older and approach the middle grades years, dialogue begins to likely become more like this when you pick up your student: Parent: How was your day? Student: Good Parent: What did you learn? Student: Math Parent: You do anything exciting? Student: No. Three questions, three words given in total for an answer.…

Getting lost

On a Rainy Day in November

I spent the month of October reading the Complete Poems of Robert Frost (Holt, Rinehart and Winston). It is tempting for a reader to afford someone like Robert Frost (1874-1963) the kind of deferential lens that, when applied to other writers, forces us to appreciate Proust. Once writers become Laureates we feel compelled to laud them. However,…

Song of My Shelf: The Why and The What

Why? These days, there are at least three reasons for a person to start a Blog. He wants to spend a lot of time writing words that only his rabid fans will read. He has no rabid fans, but he is contractually obligated to start a Blog. He thinks that a Blog a is good…
