    Tess,
    this is a great article to highlight the gender inequality gap. I really don’t like when people limit “the gender gap” to differences in wages, because it shows just how much of a blind eye we turn to other societal problems. My question is, where do you think this comes from? Why, even hundreds of thousands of years after the creation of…Read More

    • Hi Hunter, I like your research topic. I think students’ mental settings are wrong in this society especially for seniors. Sometimes students do need some motivations and need to be helped/pushed by teachers. Although grades, homework and tests are stressful but they motivates students to learn. However, many seniors just drop the ball and don’t care about anything now. So I think either student himself/herself need to do something to change this setting or schools need to do something to prevent this from happening.
      Here is a useful resource of grading from a teacher’s perspective: https://cft.vanderbilt.edu/guides-sub-pages/grading-student-work/

    • Great article, Hunter! I really like that you talked about how the current use of teaching techniques aren’t done because they are good but rather because they are societally acceptable. Based on your post I think you would enjoy this article, https://www.thnk.org/blog/3-reasons-grades-bad-education/.

    • Hey Hunter,
      This is an interesting topic to research. It is something we need to change in our society to make our future better. And it all starts with education. The current teaching methods are based on grades and not on proficiency. I found this article that has interviews of educational experts about the current teaching methods. Hope this helps!

    • Hunter,

      I found your article very interesting. Specifically when you said “We are a feedback culture, and as such, understanding each other and considering other points of view are important, but the underlying question, of course, is whether we can differentiate points of view in a topic with one fundamental method of solvency. If the answer is no, then we cannot open up a calculus class to discussion.” I agree that our educational system needs to have a change and I think that meta cognition is a great way to accomplish this goal. However, you bring up a good point about its downfalls. I would like to read more about this subject and I look forward to reading your next post.

  • Miguel,
    this is a super cool topic. Our names are this thing we take for granted all the time. They are literally a permanent tag by which we will be known forever and we don’t even choose them. There’s an interesting theory in the world that your name actually defines who you are as a person since it changes how people perceive you. Check out…Read More

    Hunter commented on the post, What is ADHD?

    Zoe,
    This topic is very interesting. I had a few questions, though. How come, since ADHD is not curable, it is so much more common in kids than it is in adults? Is it because adults have a lower rate of diagnosis even if they have it? It’s strange. Additionally, when kids have ADD, is it the same chemical imbalance as ADHD or is it different? I…Read More
