Certain terms or phrases must have been thought up by someone who had entirely too much time on his hands.
Teachers can convert those shallow learners
In my last column, I proposed that learners in a class might be divided into three levels.
Is managing big enough in the Ripken big picture?
Cal Ripken Jr. says he has the itch to return to baseball, and most of Washington seems eager to scratch it for him by crowning him manager of the Nationals.
These two little words can have a big impact
People usually can find a way to communicate, if they want to do so.
Capt. Gary and First Sergeant Goldy occasionally are visited by Italians — usually a busload at a time.
Students often display different learning levels
Might there be a better way of understanding students’ difficulties in learning? Some ideas that have been widely explored include learning styles, multiple intelligences and bloom’s taxonomy.
In my opinion, these outlooks have not been successful in devising widespread strategies to make our students better learners. Now there is much talk about large scale use of external internet courses to revolutionize college learning (and to put most colleges out of business).
This will really fix whatever’s ailing you
Testosterone! That’s what I’m talkin’ about right now. And, you can’t stop me. I feel as if I’ve had a shot of the stuff and I’m rarin’ to fight. Because that’s what testosterone often does — makes you want to fight.
I know a guy, too!
My phone rings.
“Is this the guy that writes the sports?”
“I don’t write sports, but I write the outdoor column that sometimes appears in the Sports Section,” I say.
Had they not traded Kiner, who knows?
There are, in the words of our great friend J. Suter Kegg, “a lot of people walking around here with ‘P’ on their caps.”
Suter would have enjoyed the last two Octobers, although having been the founder and president of a nationally-recognized Yankees haters club in the 1950s (true story — he mailed out buttons to Yankee haters all over the country), he likely wouldn’t have been happy with the way October ended for the Orioles last year.
Amateurs can pay to play against, with pros
This past week local bowlers put up some big scores. At White Oaks, youth bowler Kasey Sullivan rolled a big 712 series. High games for the men for the week were Matt Riley with a 300 game at the Bowler and Derek Yates with a 299 at Rainbow. High Series was Keefe Kaylor with a fantastic 819 featuring a 276 game at The Bowler. Bryan Jose had 757 with a 288 game at Rainbow and Billy Kyle rolled 748 with a 267 game. Autumn Grant’s 670 was the high women’s series this week.
Our skies unmatched in the solar system
In less than a year, our public planetarium programs will resume in the Multi-media Learning Center (MLC) in the CCIT building at Frostburg State. CCIT stands for Center for Communication and Information Technology. I am hoping to start our public programs with a review of recent weather events, illustrated by pictures of local clouds. For some of the most beautiful sights in nature, easily visible to the eye are the clouds that pass over us each day.
