  • Spring Promises

    Spring Promises It's been awhile since I wrote for you and I apologize for that. The good news is I'm still here. I seriously doubted I could get out of the mess I was in, no fault of my own. Life happens. This is not a blog about my illness, and what happened to me, but it does play a major part in my transformation. Only thing is, I'm not done yet. I remain a work in progress. In fact, I will probably send this blog post out in draft. My hands are still kind of shaky, so the very act of writ ...

  • It Shouldn't Make Any Difference

    You may have heard this in a discussion of education policy in general, or if you're a teacher, you may have heard it in internal discussions of curriculum and instruction. It shouldn't make any difference. It shouldn't make any difference which teacher you have. It shouldn't make any difference who teaches that course. It shouldn't make any difference if we have to replace you with a new hire next year, or next week, or tomorrow. It's a variation on the dream of the teacher-proof classroom, ...

    Writer to Writer

    Micah was the last to leave my reading class this morning at the college. He is one of twenty high school juniors taking my class for dual credit. I had written an online compliment for one of his assignments, letting him know that his writing was fantastic and definitely superior to the work of the other students in class. He waited until the rest had left and then quietly thanked me for the positive feedback. For the next twenty minutes we dove into a conversation about writing - about t ...

    Why We Need to Stop Telling Kids to Think Outside the Box

    Tripping on 'shrooms in Prague once I stopped by an art gallery window and saw it. It was an orange dog; the tiniest of canines. A stain of fluorescent orange paint in the bottom right corner of a sizable painting of some natural scenery. I remember the grass, the trees, and the people in it but in that moment all I could focus on was the strange orange dog. I was 23, window shopping, and laughing too hard at a silly little orange dog on an otherwise green painting. Later, I was examinin ...

404 Page Not Found

Bad karma: we can't find that page!

You asked for http://www.bamradionetwork.com/sh404sef-custom-content/2511-404, but despite our computers looking very hard, we could not find it. What happened ?

  • the link you clicked to arrive here has a typo in it
  • or somehow we removed that page, or gave it another name
  • or, quite unlikely for sure, maybe you typed it yourself and there was a little mistake ?

It's not the end of everything though : you may be interested in the following pages on our site:
