Looking for inspiration for today's article

I've been sharing ideas via a printed newsletter, web site and blog since 1993, with the hope that others will find the articles, read them, then use them in their own efforts to build and sustain systems of support to help kids in high poverty areas move safely through school and into adult lives.

I often look at past articles for inspiration. Today I did that, but with a twist. As I scrolled through my blog I posted some of the articles that I found on my Twitter feed. Take a look.

Here's another

Here's another

And another

Terry Elliott, from my #clmooc network, posted this Tweet yesterday, with a video showing some Connected Learning #clmooc interactions from a few years ago. You can see my maps and logo in the video.

I hope you'll be inspired to read some of these articles, then do what Terry does. Find a way to share them with people you know.  It's only when thousands of people are reading and using these ideas that we'll reach the critical mass needed to dramatically impact the availability and quality of non-school tutor, mentor and learning programs in every high poverty area of Chicago and other cities.

This visualizes T/MI and T/MC role

In 2011 I created the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC to continue supporting the Tutor/Mentor Connection in Chicago and to help similar intermediaries grow in other cities.  I've managed to continue to gather and share ideas, but have been less successful at finding sponsors and others to share this vision and the work.  Thus, I depend on contributions to my "fund me" campaign.
