I am also a Pastor from the St. Hollins GetYourDamnLineupsRight Episcopal Missionary Baptist Church. I have hit the twitter and message boards trails in a similar manner as you have.
IMHO unless Joerger fixes his rotations and plays the best players he will have the same ceiling as Lionel. He is a much better offensive mind than his predecessor but he arguably is worse when it comes to managing rotation. Atleast Hollins didn't give total and complete preference to Veterans in every situation (Xavier, Qpon, Sam). I also thought moving Bayless was just as much about forcing Joerger to play Calathes as it was getting Lee.
Basically F/O got more continuity than they bargained for when they hired Joerger. Guess the only solace is that he doesn't air the dirty laundry and he came at a discounted rate.
You are testing the same standards...
How you teach it is called pedagogy and retention is based on how you teach not what you teach.
Common core does not tell teachers how to teach, it tells them what to teach. TN has made a massive push to change HOW teachers teach. That is a GREAT thing. The methods that TN DOE is preaching have been around in physics education since the early 80s. I've been using them for years.
That in no way has ANY THING to do with the common core standards.
For instance, your small child needs to know that 13 - 5 = 8. That's a pretty easy math fact that you believe should be memorized. But your child will not get full credit for the answer unless he/she provides this explanation:
13 - 3 = 10
10 - 5 = 5
5 + 3 = 8
In fact they will get no credit at all for just giving the answer of 5. This is expected in 1st grade. This is a regrouping technique used for kids with special needs. They want all the kids to know this as the standard rather than the simple algorithm of addition.
This is where the inappropriate standard of mental math and regrouping should be changed. The standard should be returned to memorization of math facts.
You're hoping to find peace. You're on the right path. I'm hoping to find a better coach and will continue allow myself to be driven crazy.
The improved offense is attributable to the personnel upgrades from outside (Miller & Lee). The rotations are WORSE than under Hollins if for no other reason than the increase in depth on the bench.
If Team Levien take the path suggested and waits until after the season to review the Coach's deficiencies, they're essentially betting that Z-bo re-works his contract, Miller stays healthy for 82 games, that TA can continue to play at an elite level for another year, AND that Joerger will "get it" even though we've got 75% of a season to suggest otherwise. They've taken a tractor-trailer of an organization and tossed the keys to the equivalent of a 16 year old walking out of the DMV. Agggggghhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!
Under the old method, the one that you people are wanting to stay in place, I used to retest my kids 2 weeks to a month after they took a test. The same test, after 2 weeks to a month, they scored 10 or more points less. So much for that method.
At least in common core, they will actually know what they do, can articulate it and defend it.
Which would you parents prefer!
It makes me sad when he demonstrates over and over that in his mind "not white" = AA.
There is a beautiful young student at my school who is having a hard time with college applications. You see she emigrated here about six years ago from Nigeria. She is truly the embodiment of African American. Her struggle lies in her definite lack of pigmentation. She is more white girl than this poor old Anglo Saxon. If my mind was so narrow as to that of OTP I could never see the amazing child she is - all her characteristics. She wants to study environmental science so she can return home and improve the water quality.
What's worse, he couldn't name Neil deGrasse Tyson who has the excellent show Cosmos. This guy has done wonders for astrophysics. But I have no desire to see him shirtless!
One colored glasses means you miss the beauty of the entire spectrum of colors. So sad
That pedagogy, not standards. It's easy to remember you have no educational experience.
You said " why all of the men mentioned are white". You didn't say African American. Not all non-white people are African American. Not all black people are African American
Or you could have just said Ronald McNair, and trumped everybody and ended on a high note.
Hi Wild Bill's team ( :
I'm so glad to know the music is on and more in the new Wild Bill's!… in always memory of Wild Bill… such a character!!

Btw, a couple of months back, CLMullins and I were naming women who we thought were hot and over half of the ones I named were white.
So, it is you posters that are race haters.
Those two are not black, African American. Hell, I don't have an obsession with race, I think the Kardashians, A. Jollie, Charlize Theron, etc are really hot. Hell, if you got it, you got it, race doesn't matter except to the posters that say who they think is hot.
Hadji, I really feel sorry for you. You are not man or woman enough to just say it like you feel.
What research shows is that the U. S. education system is falling further behind and Tennessee is near the bottom rung.
This protecting privacy is a bunch of crock.
The schools already have the records. Hell, we can go online and see exactly how much Homersimpson makes. Other than certain medical conditions which are already protected by HIPPA, what is all of this privacy about?
If you want to know the real pros and cons of common core, go online and google" Common Core the pros and the cons. Yes, they give both sides of it. Plus, the majority of fortune five hundred companies endorse it. Heck, those are the same companies that will be hiring your children.
Just ask a student a question that they should and do know. Then ask them to explain it and defend it. You do that a couple of times, you will quickly change your mind about objecting to common core standards.
Yes, it is illegal for the Feds to mandate a national curriculum, this is why they bought acceptance with Race to the top funds.
If 25 or more states reject CC$$ for individual standards and state testing, then common core cannot be declared national. This is why they copy wrote the standards and only allow 15% deviation for addition or deletion.
So go ahead and let the Feds have all that info about your kid and your family. Do you even know the questions on the survey before the writing TCAP last month! ? Just know that most colleges and universities are saying now, before full implementation, that students educated according to common core WILL need remedial classes in 4 year institutions.
Standards have no correlation to achievement. Proper implementation of standards via good curriculum and well trained teachers is when achievement occurs. Right now you have the perfect storm for failure in education, bad standards, poor curriculum, poorly trained teachers.
And a whole lot of wasted tax dollars.
And you couldn't be more wrong. The customers of public education are parents.
By the way, Haslam got very little support in his call to businesses to support common core. Just so happens that most businesses are run by people that are parents or grandparents first. Go ask Pitt Hyde why his kids and grand kids are go to private schools like MUS is common core is such a great thing!
I understand that he wants workers that can read directions and communicate in complete sentences, but there is absolutely no research that shows that any of this will work - it is in fact contrary to all good educational learning methodology we know.
But, who has the longest up quark?
The visual isn't pretty.
You made my day
"Making physics glamorous"
Why yes, yes it is. I can't wait to tell my students
Yea CL I'd let her drive
Try Deborah Berebichez and Firouzeh Sabri. Those are some hot women with big brains
Neither Rahul nor Rukh qualify as white.
Pretty sure David Greene has a mixed heritage too.
Take off your f#%^* race colored glasses
Since you asked why you are wondering such things about another person I thought I'd answer you ( I'm helpful that way).
It is because you have an unhealthy obsession with race.
I wonder why all of the men mentioned are white? Just wondering?
