Extractions: Discussion Recent Discussion Create New Topic Membership Join Now Login Reflections from an Instructor Four of my students from fall semester are now completing their student teaching requirements in The Netherlands, England, and Sweden. When I read their journals, I see how open they are to the possibilities of teaching and learning. I know their experiences with weblogs enhanced their ability to see those possibilities. The highlight of the entire project was the field trip to J. H. House Elementary on November 3, 2003. My students were able to see many, many examples of the use of technology as a tool for teaching and learning. We observed current events, music, art, language arts, and many more areas of instruction. My students were interviewed by a group of students taught by Anne Davis. These fifth graders using weblogs were able to talk with my students about their work. Isn't that what it's all about?

Also covers other observations on life in general. View my complete profile Thursday, September 22, 2005 Examining the American Bill of Rights Using the Ethic of Justice . This short paper is the result of an ethics course I took last fall as part of the educational administration doctoral I am attending. It looks at how framers of the Constitution balanced the need for laws with the desire to protect the people from abuses of the law. I put this paper up online yesterday and hope someone at some point in time finds it useful. The law can be a two edged sword. While it protects society as a whole, it can also be used to coerce and erode the rights of the individual. Sometimes, the only way for individual rights to be assured is to make changes to the law. This can be difficult and it may require a struggle. This is true of the American people in the 18th Century and an examination of the Bill of Rights can reveal what was believed about justice.
