    first_imgDuring my time at Harvard, I have heard many conversations about learning.  Most recently, I listened to professors at the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching symposium swap ideas on methods to foster student growth in the classroom.Some professors told stories, others listened and asked questions and commented. How should courses be designed to captivate students?  What makes students consume themselves in learning?  How do we spark curiosity and passion in an age when all the information in the world is right at the student’s fingertips?I am excited that conversations about learning are happening at Harvard, but to answer these questions we need to acknowledge that there are different types of learners. For many students, myself included, just as much learning happens outside of academic buildings as it does in lecture halls and seminar rooms.  I spent many hours in my past three and a half years at Harvard volunteering off-campus. From Allston to Dorchester to New Orleans to the Navajo Nation, service has provided me with the opportunity to apply what I learn in the classroom to the world around me.As a mentor for Strong Women Strong Girls, I may have learned more from my girls than they learned from me.  I mentored in Cambridge and Allston, and my girls taught me about the struggles they face with their educations, and they showed me that profound inequality exists just miles away from one of the most renowned beacons of higher education in the world.  Many of my mentees were caught between two worlds, trying to reconcile the cultures of their parents with their own identities.  In this way, my mentees reminded me of my fifth-grade self, if my younger self had an iPhone and knew how to text.My mentoring experience showed me firsthand how rapidly the world is changing, and how childhood and education have become vastly different in just one generation.  I couldn’t really grasp how quickly the world was shifting until I realized how challenging it is to teach fifth-graders who are constantly distracted by the latest smartphone or tablet.Through public service, I have also witnessed how the world has stagnated. Directing a trip for Alternative Spring Break gave me the opportunity to travel with a student team to New Orleans to tutor children and assist with legal paperwork for residents whose lives were damaged by Hurricane Katrina. For many residents, life is frozen just as it was in 2005.  Children have massive gaps in their educations, and people are still waiting to receive government funding to repair their damaged residences.  As a government concentrator, I study these public infrastructures, and I was taken aback by the tremendous damage caused when these systems fail or are plagued by inefficiencies.I had witnessed injustices in society well before my time at Harvard, but my involvement in service has changed my perspective on the role that I can play in addressing these issues.  For several years, I worked with inequity issues on the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, and Harvard offered the chance to involve my peers in these efforts through starting an Alternative Break trip during J-Term. My peers and I worked in some of the most remote rural areas of the country, performing health screenings on students in Head Start day care centers and delivering firewood to elderly Navajo who could not leave their homes.I oriented my career goals around working to alleviate health and education disparities like the ones I witnessed on the Navajo Nation.  The level of disparity we witnessed between places like Cambridge and the rural parts of the Navajo Nation was equivalent to the disparity between developed and developing countries. The experience was provoking and shocking, but made me and many of my peers reconsider our conception of poverty in the United States.While much of my learning happened outside of lecture halls, I am going to dedicate my next two years to teaching in the classroom, as a member of Teach For America in Boston. I believe that my life has benefited tremendously from my academic experience, but my path has been shaped by my experience with service. When we talk about improving learning, perhaps the most effective solution is to look beyond the classroom to supplement the learning done inside Harvard’s halls.As students, we can’t Google an experience or Wikipedia how we feel when we see something firsthand. What if we tried to spark curiosity by allowing students to take in what they are studying from a source other than a PowerPoint slide? My service experience at Harvard did just that, and although my path has led me back into the classroom, I hope that my students will learn just as much from the world around them as they do from me.If you’re an undergraduate or graduate student and have an essay to share about life at Harvard, please email your ideas to Jim Concannon, the Gazette’s news editor, at [email protected]last_img read more

  • 4 ways to identify a tax scam

    first_img 607SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Myriam DiGiovanni After writing for Credit Union Times and The Financial Brand, Myriam DiGiovanni covers financial literacy for FinancialFeed. She is also a storytelling expert and works with credit unions to help … Web: www.financialfeed.com Details Tax filing season is of course a busy time of year for accountants. However, it’s also a bust time of year for scammers, as well.According to a recent Federal Trade Commission report, of the $1.48 billion total reported fraud, consumers lost nearly $488 million to imposter scams in 2018. Fraud schemes range from debt collector calls or emails claiming you haven’t paid your taxes, to someone posing as an official from the IRS or local law enforcement agency threatening arrest, suspension of your driver’s license or some other penalty if you don’t immediately wire funds to pay your taxes. The scams have become increasingly sophisticated and hard to detect.Here is what you need to know about the IRS:The first contact from the IRS is through regular mail delivered by the United States Postal Service.The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text message or social media channels. Even if they call to set up appointments or discuss an audit, you would first receive notification by mail. Only after mailing an official notification of an audit can an auditor/tax examiner follow up by phone. Forward any suspicious emails to the IRS at [email protected] Alleged IRS or tax-debt collection calls should be reported to (800) 366-4484. Payments to the IRS are only payable to the United State Treasury. They do not accept payment in the form of prepaid debit cards, gift cards or wire transfers.IRS agents will NEVER demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or dispute the amount they say you owe.They have to advise you of your rights as a taxpayer. They CANNOT threaten to bring in local police, immigration officers or other law enforcement to have you arrested for not paying your taxes.  The IRS also has zero authority to revoke your driver’s license, business license or immigration status.If an IRS representative calls or comes to a home or business unannounced to collect a tax debt or as part of an investigation, they will always provide two forms of official credentials: a pocket commission and a HSPD-12 card. You have a right to see the credentials and can call the IRS to verify the identity/information on the representative’s HSPD-12 card.last_img read more

  • 4th ODI Preview: India look to bounce back against confident West Indies in Mumbai

    first_imgIndia will aim to pull up their socks in both batting and bowling departments when they face a resurgent West Indies in the fourth One Day International (ODI) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Monday.West Indies got a much needed boost when they defeated India by 43 runs in the third ODI to register their first win of the tour.Chasing a healthy 284, India looked on course with skipper Virat Kohli belting an excellent 107 off 119 balls, his third consecutive century of the series, and opener Shikhar Dhawan scoring 35 before a middle order collapse, coupled with some disciplined bowling, bundled the hosts out for 240 in 47.4 overs.Can Virat Kohli equal Kumar Sangakkara’s record of 4 successive ODI hundreds?Apart from Kohli, the rest of the Indian batting has not been in the top form in the series. The usually bankable wicketkeeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni has also been a flop, scoring just 27 runs in two matches.Also Read – A rarity: A Virat Kohli ODI hundred in an Indian defeatGuwahatiVisakhapatnamPune @imVkohli with three ODI centuries in a row, the first India batsman to achieve the feat!! pic.twitter.com/X5Zwma8QMeBCCI (@BCCI) October 27, 2018The bowling has also leaked runs.
