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.

Podium Points and Kansas History

One goal I have as a Ford's Theater National Oratory Fellow is to extend oratory into other parts of The Independent School and Wichita. In a few weeks, the kids who competed for spots as delegates will take a couple class periods and teach lower school kids podium points. They are also going to begin a video project using the city as a backdrop. I also started teaching podium points to my seventh grade history class. They are presenting Kansas History posters tomorrow and so I showed them the videos below. Of course, they were put together by Ford's Theater and, yes they are excellent.
