Obama the English Teacher

I've been following over the last number of months, all the various manifestations and mythifications of Barak Obama. It is surreal how society raises up "one man" and puts all sorts of qualities and sacred value into his mere mortal bearing.

Social Networks as Villages

Are we going back in time? Does the internet allow us to become like villagers again? Are we shrugging off 'Atlas" and the ugliness of civilization and again, becoming more human. Do Social Networks bring us back "in touch" and allow us to fulfill our own possibilities of expression, community and self?

Behind Facebook's… Continue

No Thank You to Korean Education

So my coworkers have been a buzz about Barrack Obama's recent comment that claimed that "Korean students are in school a month longer than American students. Koreans seem to find this as a vindication of the hours and hours of studying and the grueling and competitive regime of tests that they have to go through to get into one of three universities that Koreans consider worth a damned.

Joining the Conversation: My First Post

The program I teach for is small program that is part of Humboldt State University in northern California. We get about thirty to forty students in our program and they are broken down by level and subject. For instance, we might have a Level 2/3 Speaking Class or a Level 3/4 Writing Class. This type of breakdown has some disadvantages though. Some students begin to expect that because you are teaching a "Grammar" class, for example, you shouldn't be integrating too much writing or speaking… Continue
