So it was a major surprise to me when I had children who weren’t. How was this even possible? Don’t the children of readers automatically inherit the Reader Gene? Did the fact that all my kids were boys have something to do with this shocking state of affairs? Before anybody accuses me of being sexist, please remember I came of age in the 1970s, which meant I’d watched enough Phil Donahue to kno...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Few industries in America operate the way they did in the 1860s. The world is faster, smaller and more efficient. Technology has been a main driver in these changes. Education is a notable exception. The basic method of teaching in our K-12 classrooms today is essentially the same as a Civil War era one-room school house: a teacher lecturing to a roomful of students in front of a blackboard (now a ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
