A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

Flat Stanley goes to Washington

I was invited to a Bill of Rights Institute Colloquium last week and decided to visit the scene of the crime while I was there.

First of all, the colloquium was excellent. Great discussion and really pushed me as both a student of the constitution as well as a teacher of said document. Six hours of discussion on executive power. From Washington's Neutrality Act to war powers after 9.11. I love the give and take and enjoy listening to what my colleagues have to say. If you ever have a chance to attend-do it.

But back to Flat Stanley. The students made me a Flat Stanley and he had a heck of a trip. Here are some of his exploits.
