Dr. Strange


The first post of Dr. Strange's that I commented on was an elaborated discussion about lectures. In his post Dr. Strange provides readers with many different opinions including that of writers from The New York Times and The Washington Post. Dr. Strange also provides lists of why lectures are useful and why they should be abandoned. In addition to these lists Dr. Strange also states how we as educators could make it better and what the impediments to achieving a better replacement for lectures are. The debates on lectures are still continuing and Dr. Strange insists that we should join the discussion. The option to remove lectures could change education as we know it all-together.
The second post of Dr. Strange's that I commented on was actually an older post than the first. In this post Dr. Strange discusses the statistics of EDM students who read Dr. McLeod's post Don't teach your kids this please, but did not comprehend the sarcasm and satire of the post. In Dr. McLeod's post he says exactly the opposite of what he means describing exactly what to teach your kids. Dr. Strange further explains that it was not only a reflection of the blogger but of the entire EDM community. He continues to state that we as students here at South should be able to identify sarcasm and satire used in literature. He closes his post with the class motto "I don't know. Let's find out."
