Joe Klunder Education Challenge on JoeKlunder.org

Posted on September 7, 2017

As I begin to gain some momentum in my counseling, I want to be able to differentiate between for-profit and non-profit endeavors. The for-profit enterprise will essentially be like the business model of a lawyer.  Specifically, this means finding clients, setting up set services, boundaries, etc. with clients, and charging (either by the hour or per case). However, the real reason that anyone is in teaching, or should be in teaching, is ...

Chinese Market Booming in China; But At What Cost?

Posted on September 7, 2017

Education definitely has turned into a for-profit field in China.  On every corner, there is not only a traditional public school, but also an after school academy and usually an agency that promises overseas study. However, what is the cost of all of this? At the monetary level, parents everywhere are spending up to $100 USD an hour on ESL tutoring.  At the social level, there is a growing disparity between wealthy and poor.  At a ...

Those Special Moments That Last Forever

Posted on August 3, 2015

A Reflection on What Makes Life Worth Living A part of me cringes as I write this.  I know that others (and most likely myself) can now look at my words, my works, and my thoughts with a critical eye.  After all, everything I write can be later be condemned and Google-searched as too naive, objective, reflective, wordy, terse, or any other term to describe sub-par writing (and sub-par thoughts represented by those words).  However, there are ...

That is, an exercise routine that maximizes the most parameters: - intensity - optimal body composition - flexibility - strength - cardio-vascular capacity - in the least amount of time - using the least amount of space and equipment - can be done at home to minimize transit time - can be completed at least once a day, ...

Automaticity appears the main goal of instruction. a. For a skill to become automatic, 2000 "perfect practice" experiences are necessary, at least for simple letter matching tasks. b. The payoff is huge, automatic tasks are done 16 times faster, ...
