Tonawanda, I love your posts on CTH and see we are in agreement with getting government out of education.
For over four years now, we have tested our educational model on adults throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Texas. More recently in Indiana and Colorado, Alaska, and Wyoming.
Please check us out at http://www.buildingblocksforliberty.org and email me at email@example.com about any suggestions you might have regarding getting into all types of schools (Private, home school groups, colleges groups, etc.)
We know we have a winner and are now looking to get into the educational world of the youth. We are coordinating with the producer and director of In Search of Liberty as it “sets the table” for interest in our efforts to educate on this normally avoidable subject of our Constitution.
If you can help, we appreciate it. If you would like to host an event, go to the website and get the “kit” and go for it. Lots of work went into the production of it so that you can be assured of a quality event. The DVD set does the work. You do not have to be a constitutional scholar to host an event. Just press “play”.
TY! I bookmarked your site.
I have some very definite ideas on education.
One is that children be taught the point of what they are about the learn. IMO an obstacle to learning is that much of what is taught seems pointless, and is never put into context.
Second, is to rely more on the ability of children to memorize. There can be a high reward/incentive aspect for children, and put something in their minds which they can contemplate for life.
Third is to use linking memory devices which put knowledge in context. Example: use of the shape O, to link the letter, the number, the Earth, the wheel, and a circle etc. I might even start the very first lesson as a discussion of the shape O, which leads to many, many other concepts.
Fourth: I love Camille Paglia’s idea of using ALL religions as an organizing principle to teach children. It has many positive possibilities.
Fifth: There is no poetry or dramatic appeal to modern education. That is absurd. Education ought to be plotted out like a play by Shakespeare.
So much more, and using our Constitution as a central organizing principle is also a great idea.
Yes! Love the comments. You sound like a teacher. You and my wife would get along very well.
Would appreciate your comments after you check out the website. Our events are an all-day educational event, preceded by the movie, “In Search of Liberty”. The movie stimulates the interest in studying and that “sets the table” for our event which, we have been told, is a lot to comprehend in one day, but nevertheless very effective. Few would learn math if not made to either. Ha!
The movie can be shown a week or two before our event. It’s a super movie especially for the younger set from high school down.
If you want, you can email me at either firstname.lastname@example.org or foodservice@Windstream.net. Would love to hear more of your ideas.
I am definitely going to check it out! Already have the site bookmarked.
By the way, I have our four DVDs of the presentation on a USB thumbdrive. I can send it to you via snail mail if you would like to see what we teach. I would have to charge for it unless you want to use it to “host” an event in your area. We provide it free for hosts. At the present time, we are looking at getting it accessible on Vimeo or some other platform so that all we have to do is to provide a secure link for our hosts. If they have wi-fi, they will be able to get it.
