    I have just retired …but still stimulated by all things that encourage learning.
    Career – engineer > maths teacher > head of Maths > Head of [a UK] Sixth Form > Senior Deputy Headmaster >> then Management & Training Consultant …for 16 years using ideas from applied Emotional Intelligence.
    I used some ‘quick-hit’ presentations to make humorous […?] and thought-provoking penetration.
    If you are interested drop me an email and I will attach examples by return.

    Thanks for a truly stimulating web-site.

      Hi Gretchen. Thanks for sharing! We certainly will have future content on helping students become better critical thinkers and learners (especially the skill of learning how to learn).

      I am a parent with a few words on ADHD. Please, always keep an open mind to individual teaching strategies. The continuing education, seminars, and your own research. Never clump students in a group based on a label, but rather get to know who they are as individuals. I have a son whom has ADHD with an IQ of 129, they are smart, they are not all the same and medicine is only a bandaid, ‘not a cure’. They will still have problems learning and all learn differently, no matter how intelligent.
      I always have a parent, teacher conference at the beginning of every school year, to give facts, etc. One fact is: A child can make a 40% on a math test, have a teacher that cares enough to notice it was a bad day, teacher ‘hand writes’ every problem missed and gives that to the child to complete the next day and the child makes a 100% (Note: on the same dose of medication) – This was my son and a 3rd grade teacher I will never forget. Aim to be that kind of teacher, WE DO NOTICE and WE DO APPRECIATE. In 4th grade he had a teacher who thought, medicine ingested equaled A DAILY CURE. Many humiliating instances occurred, Needless to say, he was withdrawn in October and I now homeschool my son.
      I wish you the best and hope this may help you make a difference in how you view and teach children with ADHD, remember they too wish they were not a problem for you as much as you do – they can feel your thoughts.
      I am open to any questions or feedback. Best wishes, Lisa.

          My wife and daughter both are profoundly bipolar and suffer from ADHD. Your right even on medication ever day is a different day with its own challenges. I’ve had to become very patient and understanding. I am about to be certified as a middle school science teacher. I think I will be a more effective teacher after experiencing what I have at home. I plan to accommodate every student who needs special attention or differentiation in the classroom. My daughter also had to be home schooled after being treated without respect or understanding. Every child has right to a quality education and that is within the means of all effective teachers. I very much sympathize with what you and your child have gone through.

    I am student researcher at a Television College in Nigeria. My research on the topic “Student and Television News Viewership/consumption. Because it has been a concern to me observing a lot of colleagues in TV Journalism don’t even watch TV News. Oh! No Wonder, 95% can’t even do a simple news and other presentation. I’m half done with my project while I’m just discovering Funderstanding. I will be so pleased if I can get some advice on what funderstanding can say about my topic. Maybe I can include in my project.

    Thank You Funderstanding! And I Hope You Understand.

  19. Deniel Woodhouse-Williams says:

    I am a student-teacher who is looking for information to complete my assignment on the way children learn.

  20. Greg Camp says:

    More than culture admits, emotional response is more a voluntary and responsible choice than is generally realized. The measure of both psychological strength and freedom is the number of available choices. The reluctance to accept emotion as partly voluntary may have to do with the responsibility issue; it is less distressing than to blame. It’s not difficult to trace the path from cortex to limbic system to autonomic control; the latter producing “feelings”

  21. Marvah Bradshaw says:

    I am an educator. I would like to receive information on current and updated practices in early childhood, related to literacy and assessment. My interest also extends to the field of differentiated instruction.
