Picture a circle, divided into 3 equal parts, these 3 roads, Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric, when used in
that specific order, repetitively, with active learning engaged… produces ever increasing degrees of certainty.

If you rotate this circle, and progress it horizontally, it creates a line of repeating steps, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, etc. and this is a comprehensive decision making process. It is the process used to deceive all of us to lock our own minds early in life, as being deprived ofthis simple natural reflection of the human learning process, we accept whatever feels emotionally pleasant as truth, and that does not compute, if you’ll excuse the irony.

Critical thinking cannot be effectively taught in a curriculum, as it is a skill which results from the processof thinking, and learning, and is driven by the grammar, logic, and rhetoric cycle of observation, thought,and action. The purpose of grammar is to bring initial and consistent order to a body of knowledge.

The purpose of logic is to extract understanding from the body of knowledge. Rhetoric is the cogent explanation of that body of knowledge. If done effectively, this is known as teaching. When one realizes that they desire to change their environment, either as recognition of a problem or the inspiration for a new creation or improvement, the learning process is necessary.

Unschooling for Social Change Introduction The Freechild Project defines unschooling as the process of learning through life, without formalized or institutionalized classrooms or schoolwork. Unschooling relies on interpersonal relationships and natural learning progression to have effect on learners, instead of textbooks and classroom teachers.

Build a Log Cabin for $100 - Green Homes. Living in a cozy little cabin nestled in the woods is part and parcel of the classic Thoreau-inspired lifestyle most folks dream of now and then.

Build a Log Cabin for $100 - Green Homes

But the romantic vision of log-home life is shattered — for many people — by the sheer cost of such structures, which can be as high as that of equivalent conventional homes. That doesn't have to be the case, however. My wife and I kept down the cash outlay for our “Walden” by gathering most of the materials from the land where our house was to stand, and then building it ourselves, using only hand tools. As a result, our small home cost us only about $100 to construct … and the project was so simple that we’re convinced anyone with access to a few basic implements and a good supply of timber could build a log cabin too. First Steps One of the ways in which we kept our expenses down was to choose an uncomplicated design for our cabin.

The size of our cabin was limited more by our stamina than by the design. Log Foraging. 2012 Trivium Study Guide Version 2 / Edited by Tony Myers. Word Matters. Collective work by some thirty authors from civil societies all over the world, deciphers the central concepts of the information society”.

Word Matters

Technology is never neutral: it carries social, economic and cultural consequences. New information and communication technologies are no exception.The words used in international negotiations or legislation are a poor reflection of such consequences; they propagate perceptions that are rarely subjected to democratic debate, the fundamental requirement for any political decision.

This book subjects the concepts of the information age to critical perspectives from different sensibilities and cultures, thus introducing alternative visions. Fully multilingual, this work is a reference for anyone who aspires to decode these key issues, and is an invitation to pursue the debate.

One The Event - Social Architecture

Barbara along with many others including officials in Washington DC saw this wheel as an open-source tool that would help us define and bridge us from old hierarchical systems to ones based in co-creation and bridging resources and needs in evolutionary ways. How we use it Each pillar is self explanatory. Embracing Whole-System(s): Beyond the Pillars While the Pillars cover the WHAT (solutions, impact areas, and issues); facilitating meaningful collaboration also requires coherence, trust and synergy.

In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.[1][2] Leon Festinger's theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency.

Cognitive dissonance

When inconsistency (dissonance) is experienced, individuals tend to become psychologically uncomfortable and they are motivated to attempt to reduce this dissonance, as well as actively avoiding situations and information which are likely to increase it.[1] Relationship between cognitions[edit] Individuals can adjust their attitudes or actions in various ways. Stockholm syndrome. Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors.

Stockholm syndrome

These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.[1][2] The FBI's Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 8 percent of victims show evidence of Stockholm syndrome.[3] Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes "strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.

"[4] One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. History[edit] Extension to other scenarios[edit] Psychology. Pattern Language.com.
