12 Steps to Spelling Mastery

There are students who, because of grapho-motor difficulties,  do not readily profit from repetitive writing of a word to master its spelling. For some to repeat the letters over and over, is equally ineffective. Searching  for each Scrabble™ letter square engages a deliberate attention, holding the letter in mind as the "hunt" proceeds. Noting the arrangement of vowels and consonants in the order presented, further engages attention. Matching the sounding and silent letters to each blank side of the Scrabble™word square,  engages both the right brain and the left brain, proving to be highly effective. The movement and action that the child is engaged in,  is of particular benefit to kinesthetic learners and those who like to be on the move.

Here provided is the 12 Steps to Spelling Mastery.  Click for larger view.

TESLA... Map to Multiplication...in accord with APOGEE Learning™

YES, These are the very principles of numbers, patterns and space and time, that I use to teach the student who is experiencing difficulties with the math he is taught in school... Memorization of tables is not the ultimate answer to math mastery. Understanding the patterns, the consistencies, the number sequencing of even and odd numbers, brings one to gain possession of number power and the skills that allow any associated confusion to be replaced by a working skill set. Rose Marie Raccioppi

Long-Lost Nikola Tesla Drawings Reveal Map To Multiplication

Tesla map
A recently discovered set of original Nikola Tesla drawings reveal a map to multiplication that contains all numbers in a simple to use system. The drawings were discovered at an antique shop in central Phoenix Arizona by local artist, Abe Zucca. They are believed to have been created during the last years of Tesla’s Free Energy lab, Wardenclyffe. The manuscript is thought to contain many solutions to unanswered questions about mathematics.
The Sketches were hidden in a small trunk with numerous other drawings and manuscripts ranging from hand-held technological devices to free-energy systems, many with notes scrawled all over them. Some of the pieces are already familiar to the public, but a few others are not. Most notably is the Map to Multiplication or the Math Spiral. Zucca made a few copies and showed the drawings around to different thinkers, dreamers, and mathematicians.
A few days later a Local High School Mathematics Instructor, Joey Grether, had been working on deciphering the system and had a few breakthroughs. Grether suggests that the Spiral not only explores Multiplication as an interwoven web, but that it, “offers a comprehensive visual understanding of how all numbers are self-organized into 12 positions of compositability.”
“This device allows us to see numbers as patterns, the formation of prime numbers, twin primes, Highly composite numbers, multiplication and division, as well as few other systems, I imagine, that are yet to be discovered.”
The diagram itself is very intuitive, allowing students to see how numbers all work together based on a spiral with 12 positions. 12, or 12x (multiples of 12) is the most highly composite system, which is why we have 12 months in a year, 12 inches in a foot, 24 hours in a day, etc. 12 can be divided by 2, 3, 4, and 6. So can all multiples of 12. For every 12 numbers there is a chance of 4 numbers being prime. They happen to fall in positions (think clock positions) 5, 7, 11, and 1.
Tesla is known for the quote “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.” It turns out that when the device is examined, the digital roots of the numbers in positions 3, 6, 9, and 12 constantly repeat the same sequence 3, 6, 9! Is this what Tesla was referring too? The self-organization of numbers and their digital roots?
Its hard to say, but Grether seems to think so. “This breakthrough is phenomenal. If we could get students all over the globe to use this technique, to play with it, and help figure out how to use it, we could overcome our cultural aversion to Mathematics. Instead of memorizing the multiplication table, we could learn the positions of numbers and have a better understanding of how they work.”
Juan Zapata, One of Mr. G’s students believes so as well… “I used to say I’m bad at Math… cause thats what everyone says, but now, I’m like, dude, this is too easy.”
Theres one other fact about the Tesla Spiral that make it interesting. The diagram is dated 12/12/12! 1912. Grether and his students want to turn December 12 into a national holiday. So grab a 12 pack, get a dozen donuts, and celebrate the power of 12x.

Sharing with a SMILE...


Sharing with a SMILE ...
wink emoticon
As an Educational Consultant/Therapist, I have the pleasure and honor of working with the divergent learner, bright, creative, perceptive, fun loving, exploratory BEINGS who question WHY and WHY NOT. One of these bright delights, of five years of age, proclaimed I had OBSIDIAN POWER. YES, his proclamation brought much loving light to our work, opening many channels of discovery, including the power of TRUTH. You are welcomed to peruse the post inspired by this proclamation of OBSIDIAN POWER. APOGEE Learning: OBSIDIAN Pledge of TRUTH...Father and Son...http://apogeelearning.blogspot.com/…/obsidian-pledge-of-tru…

Today, as we were working on 'words', their specific letters. the sound each letter makes, how the sounds feel, and what the word tells us, he looked into my eyes and with a broad smile on his face said, "YOU ARE MY TUNING LADY."

OBSIDIAN Pledge of TRUTH...Father and Son...


Each crystal, mineral, gem, is a vibrational universe, conveying its intention... we need only to listen and its knowing will be conveyed.

A young student, with a very wise and loving soul, recently stated that I had OBSIDIAN POWER ... and so we communicate our truth through the intention of the OBSIDIAN we share. A universe of intention lies within each crystal, each gem, each mineral. Here pictured is a father's hand and his son's hand, pledging to be in truth and to make that truth known to one another heart emoticon. YES, the accord of OBSIDIAN POWER heart emoticon.

When the Pledge of Truth, prompted by the son, was made by father and son, JOY and LIGHT became ONE. This the knowing of a 6 year old.

All in the APOGEE Paradigm™ spirit,

Rose Marie Raccioppi

Thank You Crystals on the Rocks and Kim Oleary for providing such treasures.

Michael Meade on Authentic Education

A new interview with Michael Meade

In this brand new interview with mythologist Michael Meade, 
Jennifer Louden of the pioneering education group TeachNow 
delve into a remarkable and surprising conversation about the 
true meanings of teaching, mentoring, and genius-based 

“We think that teaching comes from having the position of 
teacher,” Meade says, “when I think real teaching comes
from being authentic, so that it becomes fully awakened 

Far from a classroom specific activity, education and 
learning are life-long processes. “The underlying dynamic
of education is way more than school,” Meade says. 
“In other words, to really be in touch with the archetype
of educating would be to remember that the educators 
are really aimed at teaching an entire culture.”

Responsive to the Different Learner...

Appreciating and being appropriately responsive to a learner's interest, creativity, learning style, specific needs, define the attributes of an effective teacher. Differences and diversity are inherent in the human condition. Validation and support are essential to the growing and developing child and the different learner through the life span. Being the difference, making the difference... www.2learnnow.com
