What Good Is Learning If You Don’t Remember It?

Teachers have a desire for their students to remember what they teach long after the lessons are taught. They hope that the day-to-day lessons will stick in the children’s minds so that they can use that knowledge later in life for work, problem-solving, and basic life skills. How should teachers help the students learn the material and remember and retain the information taught?

New Earth

I talk to many people that are very worried the earth may be dying. There are major groups that devote themselves to proving the idea that the earth is doomed to perish. Scientists warn us daily on extreme weather patterns and melting ice. Some have stored away food and supplies in fear that something significant will be coming to destroy the earth. One can go online and purchase his own underground bunker, or reserve a home in communities that have been built below the surface of the earth in hopes to survive whatever comes our way.

Distracted to Death

The rise of technology has created a new problem. People are so distracted that it is placing them in physical danger, possibly even bringing death. In a distracted condition, one does not see the danger until it is too late.
Why do people put themselves into such dangerous positions? Are we giving into these distractions? Can distractions really kill us?

Too Long!

My wife and I were invited to a sign language class by our deaf friend. She was teaching us ASL (American Sign Language), and she wanted us to meet the people from her church. Most of the people were like us, learning how to communicate through sign language. We were greeting other folks when I asked a couple how long they were married. The woman replied, “Too long!”
At work one day, an elderly couple was checking out at the register. I appreciate hearing from older people how long they have been married, so I asked them, “How long have you been married?”
