    Where is the lively conversation that FOL used to have?

    I used to love coming here and posting daily. Unfortunately I stopped because of the nastiness. It just really got out of hand for a while.

    Lazy Teachers

    Actually, if you can explain how to do something then you truly understand it. Plus, when a student hears something (even verbatim how a teacher or parent says it) they typically listen more. That is actually a very good lesson. And as a teacher, preparing for a lesson like this takes more...

    Afluenza Boy making a comeback tour of federal prison

    What is tornado siren lady saying?

    The Man In The High Castle
