It's WORLD PANGOLIN DAY! My timeline does not have enough pangolins on it considering this fact and nor does yours, so please accept this contribution.

@clintlalonde That really is awful. So far my son doesn't feel that pressure, but he's in grade 7 and I expect it's likely to come later. High school is next year...

Unist'ot'en Camp on FB:

Thank you for taking this stand with us, for continuing to throw down, and for letting Canada know they cannot force Indigenous people off our lands with their assault rifles and their military force.

We won’t back down.

Thank you for making this your fight too. It’s time to remind Canada that all lands are sacred.

BREAKING Statement from Unist'ot'en Camp 1/n 

@clintlalonde I can see how this might happen, though it’s still too bad. At some ages grades just are what school is about, and your future depends on them. Hard to get past that I’d imagine. Though myself, I completely agree with you. I’d be so thrilled to not give grades but genuine feedback on progress that doesn’t have to be quantified.

Bryan van Norden has an amazing and growing list of suggested readings on what he calls the “less commonly taught philosophies” (at least in N America), including African, Asian, Continental, and more. Great places to get started to diversify readings in courses! bryanvannorden.com/suggestions

Very intriguing post by Martin Lenz on the important details of why asking students to learn how to ask philosophical questions (in addition to answering) is valuable. Via Daily Nous. handlingideas.blog/2020/01/31/

@foureyedsoul Just tried it out and it's looking good! I created a couple of different class names for different text and line widths depending on whether the argument is in word form or symbol form. Seems to be doing the trick so far! I really, really appreciate your help.

@plantarum Sorry for the late reply! Thank you for letting me know. This is what I suspected.
