Building a Better Teacher

Building a Better Teacher July 28, 2014

Movies are filled with inspiring teachers. Think Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Minds, or Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society. They seem to be blessed with an innate ability to teach. Is it really that simple? Author and journalist Elizabeth Green says the idea of the "natural born teacher" is a myth, but good teaching can be taught. We'll hear her thoughts on how that can be done. And we'll talk to an outstanding local educator about what makes a good teacher. Bring your pen and paper; class starts Monday at 9:00 a.m. on The Sound of Ideas, hosted by Ida Lieszkovszky.

Weekly Regional Roundup

Weekly Regional Roundup July 25, 2014

One of the smaller fish in the Cuyahoga County corruption scandal is back at work after three years probation but there is some outrage over where the new job is. Could you survive a full week on just $77for your food, transport, utilities, entertainment and incidentals? Three members of Congress want to give it a shot but is it a good faith effort or a slap in the face? Nearly $400 thousand in public money to refurbish a house for a new hire? Sweet deal. We'll tell you who's got it Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas with host Rick Jackson.

But all of them have overcome challenges in their lives to persevere and succeed. We'll hear the stories to four of these remarkable women, and find out what advice they have to succeed in work and in life.

Toward Healthier Seniors

Toward Healthier Seniors July 23, 2014

Our population is getting older, but older doesn't mean what it used to. Join Mike McIntyre for The Sound of Ideas Wednesday morning at 9:00 as we learn about how older folks in Northeast Ohio are staying in shape mentally and physically and about community resources aimed at helping seniors stay vibrant and independent. Why did a quarter of seniors in a recent survey say the best year of their life was the one they just finished? We'll find out Wednesday. .

Should Cleveland and East Cleveland Merge?

Should Cleveland and East Cleveland Merge? July 22, 2014

Should East Cleveland become a neighborhood of Cleveland instead of its neighbor? Some say a merger would benefit both cities. They say it would move Cleveland closer to University Circle and add to its population while possibly solving East Cleveland's money woes. A merger would require a majority of voters from both cities. But many East Clevelanders and Clevelanders say no, thanks.
