I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

There is an entire dictionary of words, idioms and catch phrases that teachers, administrators and parents use when discussing education. The educational field has its own jargon – a collection of terms vast and deep. Many of the words are perfectly fine and completely suited to the field. Some, however, are used in ways that help neither teacher nor student and, in this insightful piece by Peter DeWitt, an author, presenter and former public school principal, an argument is made to drop more these 10 from use. Good ideas here.
