and this is what the western news don´t show. Educated and Covered Muslim women are unimaginable for them.

"I was an English teacher. The demands of the system required that I give out grades, but I never felt good about it. How do you grade someone’s writing? Writing is about revision. It’s about access to self. If a student writes a poem, and it’s the best they can do at the moment, how are you supposed to compare that to the student sitting next to them? How are you supposed to give one a 90, and one an 85?"

LeVar Burton Weeps in Gratitude Over Donations for Reading Rainbow

tamorapierce:

There’s still most of a month to go, and the more funds they raise, the more kids they can reach.  Even if you can’t donate, would you pass the link on?

"Joshua Beckford learned to read fluently by the time he was two and a half and taught himself to touch-type on a computer before he could write using a pencil.
He can speak Japanese, practices medical surgery on a computer simulator and has completed more than 1,000 maths problems.”

Can we please reblog our children!!!

"When I’m doing work around the house, I give him this educational iPad app to play with, and he’s completely absorbed by it. Then recently we were at the grocery store, and he wanted to tear into some yogurt, and I told him that he had to wait until we paid for it. He said: ‘You mean I need to be patient?’ I thought: ‘Whoa.’"

Peace Love & Afro Puffs...

Here you will find: thoughtful words. beautiful heads of kinky curly hair. things from the various corners of the geekdom universe. vintage images and clothing. cinema talk. and commentary on a variety of topics ... basically the all around randomness that is me. :)
