A friend emailed me this morning and told me I needed to read this CrampicleVita article because zhe wrote one of the comments beneath it.
So often, I still think, "Wow! You're famous! You got published in the paper! How exciting!" (Next thing I know, I'll be clipping articles from the paper and snailmailing them to my grandchildren who will throw them away without reading them.) So, anyway, I read the article (or essay or column or op-ed or whatever it's called now).
I remember reading the Crampicle when I was a student. I thought they were a pretty important paper. But things have really gone downhill there. Even more than what I remember. The article (or whatever it's called) is condescending blather or maddeningly useless or some variation of such adjectives.
Are their writers serious? They remind me of that proffie-blogger mocked by CM awhile back. What was his name? Strudel? It was something like "Strudel". He was writing crazy pedagogy stuff from on high, I think. It makes me think that all administrator/educator experts are just smart 12-year-old kids who were instructed to write like adults--and then some publisher slaps an adult's photo on the gibberish and publishes it. What horse crap.
But I'd kind of like to invite those commenters to CM. They're almost good enough to fit in here.
