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.

Back in the Blogging Saddle Again

I have played with a couple other blog sites and have decided to stay with Blogger a little while longer. Hopefully we can figure out how to get all my followers to be able to reply to posts.

I'm also expanding this to just beyond classroom stuff. I've decided I need to place to process thoughts and ideas about 'edumacation'. Its alot cheaper than therapy. Welcome to the inner workings of my brain...how sad, for you!

Used two video's in class today. The first was part of a series from Jazz @ Lincoln Center:

The other was old school (literally):

We had a great discussion in class about how Jefferson's prose in the Declaration is given feet in Madison's Constitution and how that improvisation plays out today. Good times.
