Inquiry Education in the Diverse Classroom

Recently, Shanna Peeples, a NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellow and teacher at Palo Duro High School in Amarillo, Texas, wrote a guest post for Education Week that connects two subjects that may seem as though they don’t fit: global competency and locally-based inquiry investigations. Amarillo, which has the largest refugee population per capita in the United States, provides Ms. Peeples and her colleagues no shortage of students with widely varied life experience—most of which outside the country. Lessons in global competency may not be differentiated enough to be effective to these students. They simply have too different global experiences from…

Why Is the Workplace Losing Millennial Women?

Much is made of the gender pay gap for women in the workplace. Most of the blame is pointed at hiring and promotion practices. Women make up 26 percent of the nation’s corporate vice presidents and senior managers. Although that can be the product of plain sexism, there may be an even simpler cause: millennial women are simply washing out before they even get close to the glass ceiling. The first theory, as reported in a recent Fast Company article, is our ever-connected culture. Although both genders are under pressure to outperform a perceived employment pool that is just waiting…
