"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972

. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966

SM Welcomes Douglas Storm

Douglas Storm has an MAT from Washington University in St. Louis, and he is certified as an Advanced Practitioner of English/Language Arts  grades 5-12 in the state of Indiana.   He has two boys (10 and nearly-13), and about 5 years ago he came to understand that he is much more of an aural learner than he was previously aware:  

"We live in Bloomington, IN, moving here because we thought it would be fun to live in a college town that is both "small" and "cosmopolitan."  And I have never been so instructed in reading by a book than I have been by Moby Dick."

Welcome, Doug.
