Justice, Inconsistency and Self-Publishing at Critical Voter.
I’ve added a few more pieces on Critical Thinking and the US election to the Critical Voter site. Stop by if you’re interested in finding answers to the following questions: Who predicted Donald Trump’s Iowa loss 2500 years ago? Does it make sense to settle an important election with a […]
I just revived my Huffington Post column and thought Critical Voter readers might want to hear what I’m saying over there about this year’s most talked-about (mostly by himself) Presidential candidate: When I told friends, colleagues and family members that I was turning Critical Voter, a curriculum that used the […]

For any visitors not linking here from the New York Times site, the Times Education section ran a terrific piece this morning on what it means to be an independent learner in an age of information abundance (or overload). The piece uses my One Year BA project as an example of […]
A couple of announcements for friends, fans and followers. First, that book event I mentioned last time taking place tomorrow evening at Harvard’s new Ed Portal is going to be livestreamed at https://new.livestream.com/accounts/8714559/events/3839785.
