Blog Articles by David Freeman

As you read through these articles, please remember that instructors are students as well, constantly learning. Pay attention to the dates and recognize that in more than one instance my view and experiences may have changed based on things I have learned. I've tried to update the earlier articles where I've found this to be the case, but may have missed some. If you've got comments or questions, you can leave a comment at the end of the article and I'll respond.
