Worked 25 as a customer service director and as an education advisor at the Marine Corps Institute (MCI)in the Washington Navy Yard, DC. Introduced information mapping and critical thinking techniques to distance education of MCI's officer and enlisted professional military eduation program. More recently, I introduced and used critical thinking to teach summer academic programs. I have used the lesson and chapters in my Docstoc uploads with students whom I tutor.

snipp snapp snute saa er eventyret ute folklore reader and critical thinking workbookAs a reader, “Snipp snapp snute, s� er eventyret ute” – Folklore Reader and Critical Thinking Workbook introduces students in middle school or above to different folklore “genres,” such as folk tales, riddles, ballads and tall tales. One important feature which students explore is folklore motifs or themes. Besides writing about folklore venues, students create their own folklore pieces. As a critical thinking workbook, “Snipp snapp snute, s� er eventyret ute” uses graphic thinking organizers to teach logic and organization. The organizers help students to “see” their thoughts on paper so that later they can do written work. In each lesson students learn how to use an organizer to explore a “rhetorical” or analytical technique, e.g., contrast and comparison, classification, assumption and inference, process, etc., in relation to a folklore reading. Then using the organizer, they write about the folklore selection. The self-contained volume can be used for home study, by parents, or in a classroom.View doc
