I wish this was more seamless in terms of execution, but it’s a great concept.

Ensuring students have effective teachers in front of them every day will go a long way toward putting our kids on a path to success in college and in their careers. Anything less shortchanges our kids and shortchanges our country.”
What can this course do for me, the student? This course can give me:
- At least two items for my job-seeking portfolio – gorgeous mind maps and a comprehensive statistical research project – demonstrating to employers my work ethic and the quality of my work.
- Life-long learning and study skills I can apply continually to get the best grades, land top jobs, and move quickly up the ladder.
- Opportunities for developing leadership and interpersonal skills in a team environment, winning the heart of almost any employer.
- Practical experience with computer-based technologies, increasingly essential for me to compete in today’s marketplace
- Problem-solving and critical thinking abilities that employers consider among the most important skills needed to succeed in the workplace.
- An understanding of statistics and research that will allow me to critically assess and understand the world of data around me.
I’m going to incorporate this into everything I ever teach, ever, the end.
One of the nice things about working on Alice this past year has been a couple of off-shoot projects. This one was a particular thrill, as it was for one of my favorite podcasts— Radiolab. The stellar Jez Burrows asked to me to contribute to a live show of theirs all about symmetry. What better way to showcase that than with the Looking Glass from the second Alice book? If I were to ever illustrate Through the Looking Glass, I would use these colors I think— they had a limited palette for the show, but I really like how it worked out. If only they had the live shows to watch online, I’d love to see the rest of the show!
