As a Review-Journal subscriber, an experienced high school teacher for the Clark County School District, and a member of the Clark County Education Association, I feel compelled to counter some of the assumptions you rely on to solve the problem of teacher retention and encouraging effective teaching.

In your March 13 op-ed, “Teacher Shortages and the Status Quo,” you suggest that “subject knowledge” should be the main prerequisite for obtaining a teacher’s license, as opposed to merely ” degrees” obtained in teaching schools, that degrees obtained through education in school courses are mostly irrelevant to actual teaching, and that the lack of incentives to improve teaching is the fault of the “trade union rules”.

First, “subject knowledge” is not enough. “Knowledge of educational content” is also necessary, an idea first presented more than 30 years ago by Lee Shulman in “Those who understand: the growth of knowledge in teaching”. Pedagogical content knowledge “goes beyond subject knowledge itself to the dimension of subject knowledge for teaching”. This would include a thorough appreciation of the many ways in which learners progress and the many ways in which students typically misunderstand a given topic, as well as strategies for dealing with these challenges.

This brings me to the second point regarding schools of education. This is where student teachers first encounter ideas about child development, learning and broader ideas about subject acquisition. Students need teachers who plan lessons, orchestrate class discussions, and identify where students are coming from, sometimes on the fly, sometimes by carefully reviewing submitted written work. Schools of education promote challenging and challenging research into how people learn that forms the basis of eventual expertise that accompanies teaching experience. Schools of education usually rely on other schools or departments to properly prepare students for knowledge of a subject. If a new teacher cannot correctly factor a polynomial, please point the finger at the college math department, not the school of education.

Third, it is misleading to characterize the terms of agreements negotiated between unions and school boards as “union rules”. They are also “school board rules”. If the school board wishes to modify the terms and conditions, it may propose new ones.

Proven free market mechanisms for retaining workers include improving working conditions and increasing pay. I suppose my union leadership would gladly consider such proposals.

Thank you for reminding readers of this important issue. I just don’t agree that any reform informed by the assumptions you make to this issue will lead to solutions.

In a normal year, the Consumer Electronics Show pushes Las Vegas to capacity. Nearly 200,000 people attend the convention, filling hotels not just on the Las Vegas Strip, but just about any property in town.

This year, while CES held an in-person trade show, many major exhibitors pulled out at the last minute due to an increase in Covid cases. CES did happen, but it drew around 15% to 20% of its normal crowd.

The Review-Journal won the top prize in the Associated Press’ annual Sports Editors’ competition this week, finishing in the Top 10 for daily, Sunday and website coverage for the industry’s coveted “Triple Crown.” .

RJ’s sports section has now won at least three major section awards three years in a row.

Overall, the RJ won seven awards, including four individual honors, while competing in the second broadcast category. This year’s competition rewarded work published in 2021.

“Each year, the Review-Journal’s sports team reaffirms itself as one of the best in the country,” RJ editor Glenn Cook said Thursday. “Our work in 2021, covering great story after great story, has been some of our best ever. Thank you to the APSE for putting the Revue-Journal in the spotlight, and thank you to our loyal readers for trusting us to bring them the news they want every day.

RJ sections honored by APSE included Sunday Vegas Nation preview sections and Monday coverage of Raiders and NFL games, Golden Knights trade coverage by Marc-Andre Fleury, and media content from reviewjournal .com.

The top 10 individual awards from the RJ Sports department were:

— Vincent Bonsignore for his rhythmic cover of the Raiders.

– Bonsignore in the breaking news category for his story about Las Vegas receiving the Super Bowl in 2024.

– Adam Hill, Ed Graney, Sam Gordon and Bonsignore in event coverage for their stories about the resignation of former Raiders coach Jon Gruden.

— Ben Gotz for his explanatory article on the impact of Jack Eichel’s surgery on sports medicine after his acquisition by the Knights.

This is the sixth year in a row that the RJ has won several prizes in the competition. Last year, RJ won the coveted “Grand Slam” award for achieving top 10 finishes in four areas, but the organization no longer honors special sections in larger draw categories.

The competition rewards the best in the sports sections, sports writing and sports reporting. The organization includes representatives from most daily newspapers and major sports websites in North America.

Raiders News: PFF suggests more Patriots could come to Las Vegas https://scapa-lv.org/raiders-news-pff-suggests-more-patriots-could-come-to-las-vegas/ Sat, 19 Feb 2022 15:02:00 +0000 https://scapa-lv.org/raiders-news-pff-suggests-more-patriots-could-come-to-las-vegas/ This is by no means groundbreaking news, as several people have suggested that the Las Vegas Raiders could bring in a few former New England Patriots this offseason after the Raiders hired Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler as head coaches. and general manager.

This is by no means groundbreaking news, as several people have suggested that the Las Vegas Raiders could bring in a few former New England Patriots this offseason after the Raiders hired Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler as head coaches. and general manager.

The ‘patriotic method’ or system has always been integral to New England’s success, so bringing in players who understand and know the playbook and mentality wouldn’t be a bad idea for McDaniels and Ziegler, who were coming both of the said organization. .

But what might make these rumors more concrete is Focus on professional football’ Doug Kyed, who covered the Patriots from 2011-2021, was recently asked about how the Raiders might attack this offseason and had this to say:

The Raiders hired head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler from the New England Patriots and also brought in offensive coordinator Mick Lombardi, quarterback coach Bo Hardegree and coach of the New England offensive line Carmen Bricillo. Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham and senior defensive assistant Rob Ryan also spent time in New England. They all join Raiders assistant director of player personnel DuJuan Daniels, who also spent years as a scout with the Patriots.

So how are they going to attack free will? The most likely answer is that they will try to bring on board guys they know well.

The top Patriots free agents are:

S Devin McCourty

T Trent Brown

LB Dont’a Hightower

LB Jamie Collins

CB JC Jackson

G/C Ted Karras

ST Matthew Slater

RB James White

RB Brandon Bolden

QB Brian Hoyer

McCourty and Jackson are the two defensive backs on the list above that stand out for me, however, the former turns 35 in August and the latter could end up outside the Las Vegas price range.

While a lot of Raider fans won’t like to hear it, the Raiders could use a right tackle and Trent Brown is a good tackle, when motivated. The end of that sentence is the problem, but who knows, maybe Brown has a strong relationship with McDaniels and that’s enough to keep him going. Ted Karras would also be a quality option on guard for the Silver and Black, so New England might have a few castaways in the trenches who could migrate to the desert.

Kyed later goes on to talk about the draft, stating:

“I believe the Raiders will also look at similar prospects to the Patriots. Wide receiver, cornerback, defensive tackle and linebacker are the Raiders main needs. Although the Patriots didn’t draft well at wide receiver, McDaniels and Ziegler were able to select Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker in 2010. That’s a promising sign as the Raiders look to add weapons to quarterback Derek Carr.

Finding a wide like Thomas or Decker would be a huge win for the Raiders, and Zeigler and Co. got a second-round gem in defensive tackle Christian Barmore last year. In other words, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the new diet.

In other Raiders links:

  • McDaniels sits down with The 33rd team: The new Raiders head coach gave one of his first interviews as manager of the Silver and Black and spoke about all the changes he’s been through.
  • DeMarvin Leal, DT, Texas A&M prospecting report: a defensive tackle Las Vegas should consider with its second-round draft pick.
  • Raiders sign offensive lineman: Jordan Meredith joins the Silver and Black after a stint in training camp with the Rams, per Las Vegas Review – Journal’s Vinny Bonsignore.
  • Key versatility for the Raiders defense in 2022: There are quality pieces in place for new Las Vegas defensive coordinator Patrick Graham, Ray Aspuria pens.

With Las Vegas becoming a hotbed of professional sports activity in recent years, a potential newcomer to the market envisions every league calling Las Vegas at some point.

In just a few years, Las Vegas has gone from zero professional sports teams to having the NHL’s Golden Knights, NFL’s Raiders, and WNBA’s Aces playing at home within miles of each other. Add to that the NBA’s longstanding interest in the area, with Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics eyeing the Valley for a possible relocation and news of a possible Major League Soccer team heating up last week, and it’s obvious that all eyes are on Las Vegas.

Wes Edens, part of the ownership group that struck an exclusive negotiation deal with MLS in hopes of securing an expansion franchise in Las Vegas, said the sky was the limit for professional sports in Las Vegas. He is also part owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks and was part of the group that landed the team in a new arena and helped them win their first NBA championship since 1974.

“I believe every major sport will be in Las Vegas at some point in the future, really,” Edens told the Review-Journal last week. “I think baseball, basketball and football, I think they’ll all have homes in Las Vegas in the long term, or maybe not that long.”

While many skeptics believed a market the size of Las Vegas could only support one major professional sports team, let alone many, Edens said the success of what was apparently the league least likely to succeeding in the desert provided proof that Southern Nevada can sustain any league.

“I think hockey was the most unlikely to be first,” Edens said. “Look out the window in Las Vegas, there’s not a lot of hockey going on right now. The success he had really opened the eyes of people around him. Football, given its fairly limited home schedule, might have been the most intuitive; they were a huge hit.

With the ever-growing Las Vegas Valley approaching a population of 3 million and the high number of visitors, Edens believes the recipe for success is a mix of local fans and out-of-towners.

“The draw of Las Vegas is not just local appeal, as one of America’s fastest growing cities…but it also has a massive tourist population,” Edens said. “It will probably be a venue for all major sports.”

Jeremy Aguero, director of operations and analysis for the Raiders, also believes that all the leagues could end up in the southern Nevada desert, but warned that it is not certain that they will succeed if they try. simply to follow the plan of the first two major professional sports teams in the valley. .

“Football is different from baseball, baseball is different from basketball,” Aguero said. “If you think people can just replicate what the Raiders did, what the Golden Knights did, or what the Aces did, no, I don’t think that’s easy to do.”

Aguero said there was no cookie-cutter plan that other teams could follow to ensure success in Las Vegas. But he firmly believes that the region has not finished enriching its professional sports repertoire.

“I think there are all kinds of opportunities for additional events and additional leagues to exist here,” Aguero said. “It just has to be the right formula for it to work.”

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Some shake-ups among owners could lead to rebranding, tearing down, rebuilding and adding household names to some of the Las Vegas Strip’s most iconic properties.

Caesars Entertainment Inc., owner of the venerable Bally’s Las Vegas, announced this week that it plans to rename its towers in the heart of the Strip the Horseshoe Las Vegas, taking inspiration from a name made famous at a downtown gambling hall. -city that was the original home of the World Series of Poker.

A few blocks from Las Vegas Boulevard, the famous Tropicana Las Vegas could be demolished or renovated, according to the director of the company proposing to buy Bally’s Corp., owner of a Rhode Island-based casino. Bally’s Corp. buys the nearly 1,500-room resort – a Rat Pack-era attraction once known for its mob ties.

“We’re open to anything,” Soohyung Kim, founding partner at investment firm Standard General, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, including possibly leveling the tower and redevelopment of the 35-acre Strip property. to give Bally’s Corp. Address of the Las Vegs Strip.


“It’s hard to be a national gaming company without having a Las Vegas presence,” Kim told the newspaper.

At the Mirage Hotel & Casino, the iconic volcano that has been spitting fire since the hotel opened in 1989 is destined to be extinguished once Hard Rock International acquires the Polynesian-themed property’s operations in a deal in cash with MGM Resorts International worth nearly $1.1 billion. .

Hard Rock, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, plans to build a huge guitar-shaped hotel.

At the new Horseshoe, Caesars Entertainment said work will begin this spring to renovate and rename the 2,800-room Bally’s, which opened in late 1973 as the MGM Grand Hotel, then move the World Series of Poker to the Strip for the first time.

The tournament began in 1970 at the Horseshoe Club, a downtown hotel founded by Texas gambler Benny Binion in 1951. It moved in 2005 to the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino, where the pandemic-delayed 52nd version of the tournament marquee event was held last November.

This year, it will be at the Horseshoe and adjacent Paris Las Vegas from May 31 through July 19, Caesars said in a statement Wednesday.

“As we are moving the WSOP to the Las Vegas Strip for the first time, having it happen at Horseshoe makes it incredibly special,” said Ty Stewart, senior vice president and tournament executive director of Caesars.

Although schools in Louisiana were desegregated just before Charles Lee Bilberry’s senior year in 1969, he was not allowed to attend his graduation ceremony, he said, because “white parents didn’t want their kids to graduate with kids of color.”

Bilberry graduated from the principal’s office and soon moved to southern Nevada. He remembered his mother’s hug and kiss on the cheek when she told him, “Son, when you go to Las Vegas, be the best you can be.”

He spoke about the moment Sunday afternoon during an interfaith service at Second Baptist Church in the historic Westside to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.’s holiday.

And while Blueberry also faced discrimination in Las Vegas, he kept his mother’s promise, attending UNLV, becoming a published author, and retiring as a supervising engineer after 30 years at Las Vegas Water. District.

Quoting a speech by King, Bilberry told the nearly 100 worshipers to “be the best you can be: if you want to be a street sweeper, sweep the streets like Michelangelo painted a picture, but be the best street sweeper you can be. street that there is on the street.”

The church service was part of a series of King Week events organized by the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee, including the 40th annual parade honoring the civil rights icon Monday morning through downtown Vegas.

The 90-group procession is due to start at 10 a.m. at Fourth Street and Gass Avenue and end at Ogden Avenue.

Governor Steve Sisolak, former Metropolitan Police Department undersheriff Kevin McMahill and the Reverend Clayton D. Moore of Second Baptist were among the speakers on Sunday.

“I want to remind ourselves that the privileges we enjoy today weren’t always like this,” Moore said. “There was a time in American history when we were separated, not only because of our economic circumstances, but also because of the color of our skin.”

Congregants cheered as Moore asked, “We’ve come a long way, haven’t we?”

Still, the fight for equality isn’t over, Moore said, citing “separate systems,” including schooling, the economy and even the way Americans worship.

“Sunday morning services,” he said, “are still among the most segregated times in the US mandate.”

Interfaith services like the one on Sundays, which have speakers from different religious denominations, aim to remedy this.

“One of the big things for Dr. King to reflect on is that the fight isn’t over,” Moore said. “The occasion is not for us simply to look back, but rather to seek, to go forward: that equality must be made available, that justice must be practiced tempered with mercy.”

Sonya Pearson, vice president and vice president of the Charleston Campus of the College of Southern Nevada, said King’s legacy “has left its mark” in her life.

“The struggle is still there. I didn’t start this day thinking it was going to be easy,” she said. “My color was very light.”

Pearson, who said she was the first black student to enroll at a university in Missouri in 2001, noted that young black people now have the opportunity not only to say what they want to be, but also to demand change when they witness injustice.

“God gave me the idea to be a doctor, to be a lawyer, to be a licensed professional counselor,” she said, describing her career in academia as a calling. “But here’s the thing: you can have all these titles and initials behind your name, it doesn’t mean anything.”

The program included live music, with worshipers clapping and rocking their bodies from side to side, and the Las Vegas Unity Dancers, who twisted their bodies to a recording of a worship song.

In brief remarks, Sisolak addressed the racial progress that has been made in Nevada, but noted that there is still a long way to go, promising his office would continue to fight inequality.

Later, Sisolak took to Twitter to thank the Las Vegas congregation and condemn scenes at a Texas synagogue, where a man disrupted a service and took people hostage on Saturday before being killed by a squad. FBI hostage rescue.

“Today in particular, I reflect on how we must ensure that places of worship remain safe places of refuge,” the governor wrote.

McMahill, who is campaigning to become Clark County’s next sheriff, spoke about the history of racism in the criminal justice system.

“We have to recognize history,” he said. “We need to acknowledge what happened so that we never repeat this story, which we learn from the mistakes we made.”

He said police-community relations have transformed the Historic Westside into one of the safest communities in the Valley.

“I’m going to continue to make sure that these authentic relationships are built so that we continue to see the humanity in each other, that you don’t see me as a white man and I see you as a black man, that see us that we are human beings, first and foremost,” McMahill said to applause.

He quoted King as saying that “hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that. And I love you, and I love this community.
