Word of the day “andragogy”

noun
the methods or techniques used to teach adults: Many educators believe that the principles of andragogy, as advanced by Malcolm Knowles, have great relevance to adult education; others are not so certain.
Examples:

… in the technology of andragogy there is decreasing emphasis on the transmittal techniques of traditional teaching and increasing emphasis on experimental techniques which tap the experience of the learners and involve them in analyzing their experience.
Malcolm Knowles, The Adult Learner: A Neglected Species, 1973
We focus on adults and so prefer to use the term “andragogy.” We’ve found that adults have their own specific challenges in the learning journey, and we’ve specifically set up to address them.
Michael Horn, “What the Closure of Bootcamps Means for the Industry’s Future,” Forbes, August 3, 2017

Origin:

English andragogy is modeled upon pedagogy, which ultimately comes from Greek paidagōgía “the function of a paidagōgós,” by extension “education.” A paidagōgós, literally “child guide,” was a slave who walked a child to and from school. Paidagōgós is a compound formed from paid-, inflectional stem of paîs ”child,” and agōgós “guide,” a derivative of the verb ágein “to lead, take away, carry.” The combining form andr- of andragogy is one of the stems of the Greek noun anḗr (aner-, andr-) “man” (as opposed to a woman or child). Greek anḗr comes from Proto-Indo-European ner-, ǝner-, source of Sanskrit nár “man, human,” and the Latin proper name Nerō. According to Roman grammarians, nero among the Sabines, a rural people that lived northeast of Rome, meant fortis ac strenuus “brave and energetic.” In Celtic (Welsh) Proto-Indo-European ner- becomes ner “hero.” Andragogy entered English in the 20th century.

Letter to my husband 💥

I heard my husband running down the drive

Next, a rush of wind as he lifted me up and held on tight whirling me around and around, my breathe caught in my throat in excitement

Those big black eyes flirting with that desire I know so well

He has that smile that tells you “you’re my women”

Coyness creeps into my mind and my eyes close as a hush of gentleness folds my senses within

You feel safe cradled in his arms as he pulls me in to his body

Oh, my!

That magical pleasure melting against my husband’s body

Those moments are the best thing ever

My Man loves me
“Unconditionally”

My world is so beautiful

Thank you darling xx

Senator John McCain lost his life, leaving behind a family of seven grown children, along with five grandchildren, and his wife, Cindy. RIP💥💥

After a long battle with brain cancer, Senator John McCain lost his life, leaving behind a family of seven grown children, along with five grandchildren, and his wife, Cindy. In addition to having children with Cindy, John McCain also had kids from his first marriage, to Carol Shepp. When talking about what his kids mean to him, to Dad Mag, McCain said that, “I had three children by a previous marriage. My first wife had two children from a previous marriage and I adopted them. We had a child together, a girl. The two boys are married and have children. We’re all very close. We get together once a year at least.” Fortunately, when McCain passed away, he was surrounded by the family he loved.

Andrew McCain and his brother Doug were adopted by John McCain, when he married his first wife, according to ABC News. John and Carol later welcomed their daughter, Sidney. Prior to marrying John, Carol Shepp was married to a man named Alasdair E. Swanson, who was actually a classmate of John McCain’s. Swanson is the biological father of Andrew and Doug.

In 1980, John McCain divorced Shepp and went on to get married to second wife, Cindy, that same year. Together, John and Cindy had three children – Meghan, Jack and Jimmy. They also adopted a little girl named Bridget.

Today, many of the McCain children have found success in family, as well as their careers. Andrew McCain went on to get into the business of his step-mother, Cindy, as he now serves as the President and Chief Operating Officer for Hensley Beverage Company. Cindy McCain was the daughter of Jim Hensley, the original head of Hensley & Co. According to Andrew McCain’s https://business.vanderbilt.edu/board-bio/andy-mccain/” target=”_blank”>Vanderbilt University’s bio, Hensley & Co. is one of the largest, privately-held companies in Arizona. Many may be familiar with the company because of its Anheuser-Busch products.

Meghan McCain went on to become one of the faces of daytime talk show The View and has often spoken about her father, along with her own political views, on the show. Upon her father’s death, Meghan released the following words on Twitter, “I love you forever – my beloved father @SenJohnMcCain.” Read her Twitter post below for her full message.
