Crystal Huang ~ Crystal's serendipitous teaching-learning-sharing Series~
Dear Bev, Darrell, and Valerie, you are very seasoned educator/professor emeritus, so we are on the same page.

In fact, at the micro-level, engaging with class, delivering contents, interacting with students, grading/feedback are the most easy part of my job, and occasionally, can be lots of fun too, while, rendering cases of "arguments', "excusitis", job/family/children problems, family tragedies, learning conditions, personal health issues... all interfacing during the summative assessment processes (luckily, that's why formative assessment data documentation is very important) - this part of work is the most time-consuming and energy draining journey, even though "rule and class procedures" were well laid out and explained. Some student cases, I can sympathize or empathize if reasonable, but some... I believe that most of my colleagues can hear me !

This is not "an elite university - go to school to study, have fun, and enjoy affluent outcome! - This type of luxury is not affordable in the formal school mission statement. The occupational-track students here are to be trained and educated HandsOn + MindsOn intensively within two years to serve community immediately after graduated !

At this moment (we only have two days to submit the final grades for 6 or 7 classes). Today is the deadline. Still three students are "stimulating my brain and emotion", "talking loudly" to me via emails.

You have to believe - this has to be a very personalized or one-on-one pedagogical model of schooling.

By the way, you might also notice - how some educational institutions function to keep (if not to save) the working-class or lower-middle-class alive. The conscious or conscientious ones may manage to enhance the bed-rock of society with a little bit of hope and opportunity for some upward social mobility.

~ Crystal's serendipitous teaching-learning-sharing Series~ A "critical approach"
 - No cynicism allowed !
在資本主義深化的社會, based on the free-market and competition ideologies, 教書匠研究匠,也需要 "匠心讀具", 以謀生存. 為五抖米摺腰的處處皆是, 不必小驚大怪... 運用media hype, image packaging, 造勢造神唱作俱佳的, 大有人在! 教育界和 產-官-學-演藝-界, 似乎沒多大差別 - or, 只是略遜一籌吧??

封建主義時代的遵師重到 - 這兒沒聽過 (perhaps,  the elite schools have a little bit of it??)! 學生考核 "老獅叫獸" 可真是驚天動地. 這裡是典型 "Who-怕-Who-?" 的社會, 除非你是超級足-籃球巨星影歌星! 所以, 靠這行吃飯的, 要深明大義...頸尚天花卻比血中頌嘆, 來的真實 - 尤其是外來的, 而且是不可說...不可說...! Maybe, except the Nobel Prize winners deserve some respect?? !

By the way, 在這兒, 有錢可買黃金汙,千鐘粟, 博士銜, 美人窩,
上瓊必落嚇黃泉...大概與台有多大差距呢? ! Haha, Just kidding !

The Taiwanese version of the Gettysburg Address by Xena Crystal Li-chin Huang #75 b
The Taiwanese version of the Gettysburg Address...

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate—we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

熱血歌 National Dignity or Blood - by Xena Crystal Li-chin Huang (黃昶) #22
National Dignity or Blood                  
Sung by Crystal Li-chin Huang (黃昶) #22
Uploaded on November 23 (Sa), 2013.

Not about any political "ism".  Just sounds energizing?!
The Burning Blood (熱血歌)  was published in 1937 - the inception of World War II in the Far Eastern Asia, triggered by Japan in the Northeast part of China/Manchuria.
The song writer was Mr. 黄自 (a great composer) and lyrics by Mr. 吴崇海. The song was influential during China's (either the Nationalists or/and the Communists ?!) fighting against Japan's invasion right before World War II.
I was born and grew up in Taiwan and speak Taiwanese - like my ancestors several generations before me. Mandarin has been mandatory beginning in elementary schools,  since the Nationalist government retreated to Taiwan after Communist China won the civil war in 1949.  Though the older generation(s) in Taiwan did/do speak Japanese (occupied by Japan during 1895-1945).

熱血歌

熱血滔滔, 熱血滔滔,
像江裡的浪, 像海裡的濤,
常在我心頭翻攪。

只因為史實未解, 疑豫難消。
兩千萬同胞啊 ! 灑著我們的熱血,
去增光耀!

熱血熔溶, 熱血熔溶,
像火焰般烈, 像旭日般紅,
常在我心中洶湧。

快起來為己解疑, 為國盡功。
兩千萬同胞啊 ! 拼著我們的熱血,
去爭光榮 !

Dec 14 (Sn), 2014. ~ Vernacular Sociology Series - Crystal's serendipitous teaching-learning-sharing#49 From "Don't shoot!" to " I cannot Breathe!"

~ Vernacular Sociology Series - Social Stratification

From "Don't shoot!" to " I cannot Breathe!"

有人愛打老虎, 有人專拍蒼蠅, 有人愛抓鼠兒, 有人喜性錢勢.
我則嗜於搓搓看看 - 各式各樣的人造神話與意識形態.

Share some of my lecture notes/pptx slides regarding social/global stratification, social class/inter and intra-generational social mobility, cultural capitals, the myth of meritocracy, and  ideologies of social stratification.

Genetics and environment; nature and nurture; talents, efforts, opportunities, and luck - which one(s) tell(s) more story about one's success or failure with myriad of socio-biological confluences? Surely, first of all, how to define "success" vs. "failure" in different societies.

The powerful cultural capitals, the invisible family assets or liabilities run through family trees which never appear on the IRS radar screen.


































Racing against racism/ethnic-ism tends to intersect with classism, genderism, and the rest of socio-biological stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination (individual and institutional) to guarantee
    some people reaching their potential while others are blocked by various types of gate-keeping
    agencies.

Tobacco in the American Colonies


Tobacco advertisement from the 18th century



Tobacco advertisement from the 18th century

"Tobacco cultivation and exports formed an essential component of the American colonial economy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Tobacco plantations were distinct from other cash crops in terms of agricultural demands, trade, slave labor, and plantation culture. Many influential American revolutionaries, including Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, owned tobacco plantations, and were financially devastated by debt to British tobacco merchants shortly before the American Revolution.

Early cultivation
John Rolfe, a colonist from Jamestown, was the first colonist to grow tobacco in America. He arrived in Virginia with tobacco seeds procured on an earlier voyage to Trinidad, and in 1612 he harvested his inaugural crop for sale on the European market. Rolfe’s tobacco operation was an instant boon for American exports, and English demand increased dramatically when cheap American leaf depressed prices. Fifteen years after Rolfe’s first crop, English imports of American tobacco had reached almost 500,000 pounds per year, and by 1670 half of the adult male population in England smoked tobacco daily."

Ideological constraints - the smaller the fish, the bigger the false consciousness, reinforced by the middle fish imposed by the big ones. Apply the natural law into human society - a tip of the Social Darwinism of the human wild jungle if that is a desirable living condition.

Indeed, songs during the post-colonial stage were heavily tainted
with 殖民"皇奴"風 (the influence of the Japanese Colonial nostalgia), but should people question - who, what, how made into so, instead of, blaming innocent people victimized due to the historical tragedies!
By the way, singing foreign songs is a good way to relax and learn/refresh the languages.
All the lyrics were included on youtube posting sites. Note, in particular, sing for my special friend !

Crystal Huang shared Boon Kim Lee's video.

Thanks to Lien Hwa Yong Fei' s share the video. How to briefly explain "meritocracy" without jargon - a person's success or failure mainly is determined by one's "OWN" talent, efforts and/or choice??

Hope this is NOT a GREAT way for "Women to Lift Up MORE THAN half of The Sky" - at such a young age!

This little girl's mother used to be a healthy and the most beautiful woman of the town. She went to Canton (a province of China) and came back home with severe mental illness. No one knows what happened to her. After the mother came back, the little girl assumed multiple roles to take care of her mother and father, as well as kept the household going.

Her father had a brain injury when he was young due to an accident. He could only pick up some heavy duty chores to earn tiny money.

So, this is a video clip of how this little girl managed to be the Government, deciding all the Social and Welfare programs/policies to build a "safety nest" for her home on a daily basis via her magic wand - two little hands.

Hope this is not a GREAT way for little Women to Lift Up more than half of the Sky - at such a young age!

(The conversation was touching. Note, in the conversation with the reporters, one event the little girl mentioned was that one night, the mother serendipitously woke up and grabbed the little daughter and tossed her into a freezing pond. Luckily enough, the father timingly rescued the daughter to a hospital. The girl barely survived. So when asked if she were granted a wish, what would it be? She answered - to cure her mother's disease, so no one would tease and bully her due to her mother's mental illness.)

Crystal Huang We just covered the concepts of "relative poverty" which, tends to happen in the affluent societies, and the "absolute poverty" (typically, the low-income nations) in the chapter of global stratification. If working hard per se can get one successful, then, this father and girl would have been millionaires?? Meritocracy works??!!

Crystal Huang A controversy - Do some social/welfare programs in some countries nurture dependence? Do the most need to be assisted tend to be the most neglected?
