This Blog is really all about Teaching and Education in general. It is a personal blog and, while I will discuss things which I have experienced in my classroom, I merely want to discuss ideas and thoughts which may occur as a result of those experiences. I’d be pleased to hear anyone’s comments and promise to reply to all if possible.

  1. (I sent a scan of your page in the Thistle programme to Kevin McCarra, as you’d put him alongside other journalistic alumni, to see if this could jolt him into getting a Thistle match report in the paper. He blanked me on that suggestion, but sent this reply….

    Hi Paul,

    It was very kind of you to let me see that page from the programme.
    Mentions of the Jags remind me of my late great-uncle whose family
    owned a cafe in New City Road back in the 1960s. He was a Partick
    Thistle fan.

    I do feel anxious about the bits of Scottish football I am able to
    see. The European co-efficient would probably be a negative number if
    Uefa hadn’t been kind enough to kick out Sion.

    Best wishes,


  2. Hi,
    I’ve been reading your blog quite a bit over the past few days and have been finding it enjoyable and interesting. I’ve felt a little inspired, both in the classroom and as a blogger and so have set up my own blog, in the hope that I can share and comment in a similarly interesting and engaging way.
    I’ve placed a link to your blog on my site, I hope you don’t mind.
    Any comments would be appreciated, although it’s a little bare at the moment!

  4. I don’t blog because I can’t find the time yet. Just started to use Twitter, for God’s sake! I am, however, looking for any help in getting started using Inanimate Alice for my sophomore English classes. Some of them need to be inspired to read a story rather than just stare at a book for 20 minutes.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
