Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality. Edgar Allen Poe (via David Ferguson)
I am a professor of teacher education at Berry College, the world's largest and most beautiful campus. There is no profession more important than teacher. Neurosurgeons get paid higher salaries, but a teacher affects more brains in a week that a neurosurgeon encounters in a lifetime.
BOOKS and ARTICLES contain free articles and chapters from books on teaching, learning, and public education. BACK PAGES features short fiction and original music. LONGSHOTS is a small collection of photos.
I wrote a book called PROJECT-BASED WRITING IN SCIENCE a few years ago. One of the chapters from that book, GOING VIRAL, describes an in-depth simulation about the spread of viruses. The simulation was originally designed for a potential outbreak of H5N1 (bird flu), but is easily adaptable for SARS-CoV-2. The unit can be downloaded here.
