    The 3 Big Questions of Adult Learners: Kasia M. Derbiszewska

    >>Adult learners often have three big questions that are looming in the back of their mind anytime they enter a professional learning experience. Those questions are why am I here, how does this connect to the things I’m already doing, and what will be expected of me as a result of this learning experience. When left unaddressed, those concerns fuel the resistance to change. Professional development providers need to be very clear about how those concerns are addressed. Ultimately, no one has time to waste, and the worst thing that a participant, an adult learner, can feel is — think that the experience will be a one-and-done event, that there…

    Wäsche-Talk: Kinderrechte ins Grundgesetz?

    Hi guys. Time for the laundry, time for a new laundry talk. Today I decided to deal with the topic of children’s rights in the constitution, because it’s politically relevant right now. What exactly are children’s rights? The child rights conventions were established in 1989. And Germany signed it in 1992. All countries have signed it, except Somalia and the USA. So everybody is a part of it. Children’s rights sound good, doesn’t it? Let me read to you what rights children have according to the child rights conventions: All children have the same rights. No child must be disadvantaged. Children have the right to live healthily, to find security…

    The Time for Statewide Non-discrimination Legislation Is Now

    The Declaration of Independence says all of us, every one of us is endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. What we are asking here is for nothing less than that and nothing more. In my shoes, and backbone, and gray hairs, I feel the same sense of hard work and pushing that has gone into 13 long years of trying to move non-discrimination legislation. I stand before you as a very out, very proud, gay man who can be fired in my own state when I fall in love. In every one of the 67 Pennsylvania counties…

    Attorney General Request Legislation – Tobacco 21

    It’s really a public health crisis in my opinion. There are freshmen at my school who smoke or vape and that is because they have older siblings or friends who are seniors who are able to get those products for them and if you see people who are older than you doing it you think it’s more okay but if you move that age up and you make it 21 that means that there won’t be people in high schools who are able to buy tobacco products, which I think will help lower the amount of people who are vaping and smoking. There’s not a redeeming value in smoking. There’s…
