What is Caddickisms?

What is Caddickisms?

Caddickisms is a web-log, or blog, in which I foist my opinions, thoughts, and discoveries upon the public.

Where did the name “Caddickisms” come from?

The name “Caddickisms” first came into use in 1990 in a college essay on the author’s personal theory of education. It was applied to this blog mostly for its coincidental similarity to the word “catechisms,” which explains the form of this page.

What is a catechism?

A catechism is a method of basic instruction in a subject, usually by rote or repetition, typically in question and answer format. Though most frequently used in a Christian context, it is not exclusively a religious construct.

Who is the author of Caddickisms?

The author of Caddickisms is Jeff Caddick. Jeff is a husband, father, distance learning specialist, and geek. Many other boring labels apply equally well.

Why does Jeff write Caddickisms?

Jeff writes Caddickisms under the notion that someone, somewhere, will find what he has to say interesting, despite frequent evidence to the contrary.
