It’s sometimes difficult to remove political or philosophical underpinnings from an artistic review. The goal is to judge a film or book or album or TV show on either artistic or intellectual criteria, but all evaluations are biased by their nature, and keeping the non-critical viewpoints from seeping into the process is a tremendous difficulty.

WAR! Here we go again! We hear the call to attack and destroy ISIS from all arenas: from Tom Patterson (“Time for US to get ‘crazy’ and fight to win in Middle East,” East Valley Tribune, Aug. 24), from Joe Klein (“An Evil That Must Be Stopped,” Time Magazine, Aug. 25), and from many politicians, government advisers and so-called military experts. And this after just having briefly commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, “The Great War,” the “War To End All Wars.” As we lackadaisically prepare ourselves to slay our newest foe, ISIS, it might be worthwhile to glance at an excerpt from Ernst Glaeser’s renowned best-seller from 1928, “Jahrgang 1902” (“Birth Year 1902”).
It took only six words to propel me firmly into The Sandwich Generation. Notably, those words were not “I’d like fries with that, please.”

With the start of a new school year fast approaching (at least in Arizona), I wanted to take a moment to address a critical skill that most students fail to practice. It’s called mindset and believe it or not, it’s equally important to student success as the letter grades they will receive at the end of the first quarter.

Recently I have received some email questions that are similar to those that individuals ask me during conferences or workshops. I thought I would share them as they seem to have a universal theme.
An open letter to John Sidney McCain. FYI, John, the Iraqi people lost Iraq, not President Obama. Hell, John, George W. Bush set the timetable to walk away; you are such a tool. John, we were in Iraq for 12-plus years, if after that time a nation can’t stand on its own feet and defend itself, after wasting billions of Americans’ tax dollars propping them up, all for nothing, then we shouldn’t go back.

Ernest Hemingway lived, drank, fished and wrote in many locales around the country and the world. One of his most celebrated haunts is Key West, Florida, where the late writer's birthday is marked each July with a Hemingway look-alike contest and other festivities, some held at one of his favorite bars.

The implementation of Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards is making a difference in student success beyond the classroom. Using these standards, learners are required to think more critically and become more involved in justifying their responses when answering higher-level questions. I am spending less time lecturing and more time teaching critical thinking skills so that my students have the ability to discover the correct answer, but can also explain the process that they took to work through the problem. Students take a more active role by acquiring ownership of their learning. This builds self-confidence and allows for higher levels of success.
