“This Year’s Most Popular Q & A Posts!”

I’ve just published my annual listing of This Year’s Most Popular Q & A Posts! – from my Education Week Teacher column.

Here’s an excerpt from one of them:

Even though I personally have a far greater interest in the ancient Greeks than the Romans, I spend far more time in my global classes on the Romans as their civilization yields far more transferable lessons to the decisions students will have to make as citizens. To be able to do this, I rush through the Greeks in a day. I sacrifice understanding of the different views of Plato and Aristotle, as much as it pains the former philosophy major inside me, so that my students can examine how a republic can turn into an empire, so that students may be on the watch for similar conditions in our American republic.
