Vanilla Ideas: Angry at Pundits?
Ok, I'm not sure how I stumbled onto "He's the Weird Teacher" blog entry on the subject of, The Threat of Vanilla, but I had a laugh reading the blog entry. It's quite a rant about know-it-all experts who appear to not have listened to Weird Teacher's perspective. Having experienced this a bit myself (who hasn't in their life?), I was inspired to write a different version of his blog entry. I certainly used it for inspiration and I'm not sure how true I was to all the ideas...I tried to capture the main ones and probably failed. But it was a fun exercise given that,
, I haven't written anything for awhile.
Disclaimer: This has nothing to do with my work, edtech heresies or stuff like that. It's me having fun writing another version of someone else's work. I like it because it's a bit snarky and tries to go a different way with the anger flowing through Weird Teacher's blog entry. I had a lot of fun doing it. If anything rings true as you read it, that's about and on YOU, not me.Make sure to read The Threat of Vanilla first then let me know in the comments if I came close at all.

Vanilla IdeasWhat are you grateful for? I bet it's not temper tantrums and education pundits. The horn of plenty this November gives us much to be angry about. Doesn't outright ignoring the truth about education make you angry? It does me. I've tried to summarize the main points below. Let me know what your top five are when it comes to education pundits.
