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.

12 hours and counting ... "I can't stand it!"

All that is left is the final bit of packing and I'm like a kid at Christmas. Hurry up...

The video I'm adding is one I use with my kids when we talk about the Declaration as a 'break up letter'. At the end of the video, check out the Ben Franklin as Sid Vicious (student: google it). I think it captures the  essence of Franklin. If anyone was a rock star in the middle of the 18th Century, it was Benjamin Franklin.
