I've really enjoyed writing over the last year, but I often find myself wondering why the heck I am doing this. The prospect seems pretty slim that I will ever make enough money to even come close to justifying the time...
What were some of the qualities / traits / teaching "techniques" of the worst teachers that you ever had?
Why do you think that Americans score so poorly in comparison with other nations on global geography tests? I tend to think that it is a reflection of a lack of interest in the outside world.
Someone just congratulated me for having a hubnuggets nomination. Since I am relatively new, I don't know what that means. Also, where do you go to find out about nominations and contests?

I was wondering about the most common methods that people use to find hubs that they might be interested in reading. If it's from browsing through the articles that pop up on the topic pages, then I have a related...

The South is generally described as the bad guy in The Civil War. Do you think that their point of view had any legitimacy?
Personally, I think that these holidays, like all holidays, have taken on a life of their own. So the "secular" versions of the holidays are just as legitimate to celebrate. After all, how often to people...

I'm new, so I have what may be a dumb question. I've noticed that some people have their hubs organized into general topic areas on their profile page. How do I go about doing that?
I am a community college history teacher, and I have found that it can be tricky to discuss recent historical events. It is difficult, after all, to know which recent events and trends will ultimately matter. So what do...
What is your opinion of this famous phrase? On the one hand, I find it offensive because it is based on the assumption that teaching is not an activity in its own right. As someone who has taught for many years, I have...
