"I promote teaching as a career because of the real and broad range of opportunities it provides for great young minds to quench their intellectual and idealistic urges. Beyond that I promote the career because the profession I love will fade away in a whimper without sustainable retention of new leadership talent."

The Rise of the West and Historical Methodology: Crash Course World History #212

In which John Green talks about the methods of writing history by looking at some of the ways that history has been written about the rise of the West. But first he has to tell you what the West is. And then he has to explain the Rise of the West. And then he gets down to talking about the different ways that historians and other academics have explained how the West became dominant in the world. He’ll look at explanations from Acemoglu and Robinson’s “Why Nations Fail,” Francis Fukuyama’s “The Origins of Political Order,” and Ian Morris’s “Why the West Rules, for Now.”

"Day of the Dead draws near (November 1st for the deceased children and November 2nd for deceased adults), an opportunity for us to nourish and be nourished by our spirit allies, our family members who have crossed over. Just the opposite of Halloween, Day of the Dead is a day to remember our connections to the other side. These spirits are not ghouls come to frighten us, but ancestors who guide and protect us."

We love these Banned Books Week literary mug shots created by Kate Boryeskne, especially the one she made of Alaska Young from Looking for Alaska. We got these from her website. It’s so great when literature inspires other great art—yet another reason why the freedom to read is so important!
