“How do you
responsibility for someone receiving and understanding what you are
sharing with them, belongs to you…the person who is sharing. Once
you accept that the responsibility is yours, you realize that you
need various ways of communicating.
information, whether you are teaching a class, sending a message,
or creating a commercial, requires 3 actions to be effective. Most
people need to see and/or hear the message 3 times before they
remember it. Stated simply, you must tell them what you will
telling them, share the information you promised, and tell them
what you told them.
Class: Classes start with
an outline. The class material follows the outline. The summary at
the end restates the main points they need to learn. That’s 3
Message: To ensure someone
gets and understands your message, leave a voicemail, send a text,
and follow-up with an email. That’s 3 times.
Advertisement: Effective ads
start with a promise, show how the promise benefits the buyer, and
restates the promise. That’s 3 times.
In each case, the
person receiving the information gets it 3 times…so that the
message is delivered and understood. Let’s explore some
“Hey, I told them
what to do!” This assumes that
the person receiving the information hears you, understands you,
and realizes the importance of what you told them. When telling
them verbally, tell them what you want, tell them why it is
important, and have them share it back in their own
“Hey, I sent them
a text!” This assumes that
the person receives and reads the text, and realizes the importance
of the message. If you don’t receive a response, send it again. If
still no response, then call them.
“Hey, I sent them
a video!” First, did they
receive the video? Send a text or email to confirm. Then, did they
understand the video? If the video did not share the message 3
times and/or 3 ways, the recipient may not understand it. Follow up
with a call, text or email to ensure they received and understand
In closing, allow
me to quote William A. Ward on the differences in teachers: “A
mediocre teacher tells. A good teacher explains. A
superior teacher demonstrates. A great teacher

“What’s in your kid’s
Recently the College Board,
the organization that runs the SAT tests, and advance placement
courses where these students can earn early college credit,
advanced a new course, an AP African American Studies (APAAS). This
course was being offered to 60 high schools in the U.S. as a pilot.
If all goes well during this test year, it would be offered to all
schools for the 2023-24 school year.
Although this course has
received lots of publicity, the College Board has not released the
course curriculum. They also did not release the names of the 60
high schools. This program has been completely shrouded in
Last Summer the New York Times
stated “The College Board is jumping into the fray over how to
teach the history of race in the United States with a new Advanced
Placement course and exam that will be tried out in 60 high schools
this Fall…The College Board declined to release a sample syllabus
or other content for the course, or to name the 60 schools, or say
what states they were located in.” The Times quoted Dr.
Henry Gates (the main party in the Obama era “Beer Summit
Incident”). Dr. Gates said that he was “sincerely hoping”
that the course would not ignore teaching about controversial
subjects like critical race theory or the 1619 Project. It teaches
This APAAS history course
shares the author’s view that pushes for a socialist transformation
of the United States. The APAAS recommends reading the writings of
CRT advocates. It pushes socialist radicalism instead of teaching
history. And the course contains virtually NO readings providing
even a liberal point of view…much less conservatism. It promotes
socialism from start to finish.
Folks, it’s bad enough that
college students are being indoctrinated with this garbage. With
this action, the College Board has assumed the role of a national
school board pushing socialist, Marxist teachings into our high
schools using secrecy to conceal their intentions.
The time to stop this is NOW.
Contact your School Boards to keep APAAS out of your high schools.
Attend school board meetings to hold the members accountable.
Recall those who resist. Contact the principals and insist on
seeing the history they are teaching.
The fact that all this was
done behind closed doors in secret shows the dastardly intent of
the College Board. Remember, “Democracy dies in darkness.”
You know what to do.
