BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE SHOULD DO IT FOR YOU
Welcome to the premier site for critical thinking and uncommon sense about education, philosophy, politics, culture, and more. All content is created and curated with American culture, ethics, and education in mind. Mass media tends to lift up the loudest and most extreme voices because extreme sells, but those outlets underestimate the market for sincere, reasonable discourse. Great conversations can, and do, occur everyday between friends, family members, and coworkers; between teachers and students. Read.Think.Write.Speak. bridges the gap between the adult and young adult conversations, between the public forum and the high school classroom. Here you will find content to feed your mind, your soul, and your desire for truth -- no click bait, no junk. Best of all, we welcome submissions from readers, regardless of their demographics or resume. Create something real and responsible, and we'll help you share it.
Read.Think.Write.Speak. Do them all, and usually do them in that order. That is what education is all about. We read to learn. We think to process, analyze, interpret, and internalize. We write and speak to adapt, apply, share, and persuade. These are the four key ingredients to all quality classes, particularly in the humanities; they are also essential to a functional and productive public discourse. In our schools and our politics, we are too dogmatic, too focused on 'growth' and 'productivity,' too oblivious to the people, ideas, and diverse perspectives that surround us.
