EXPERT TO SPEAK ON TEACHING METHODS

Harvey Daniels, an educator who helped found the Best Practice High School in Chicago, will discuss ways to improve teaching methods at 3 p.m. today in the Grupp Fireside Lounge of the Canisius College Student Center.

His talk, "What Do We Mean by Best Practices?," will be free to the public.

A reading professor at National-Louis University in Chicago, Daniels is a former city and suburban classroom teacher who has written several groundbreaking books on classroom practice, among them "Best Practice: New Standards for Teaching and Learning in America's Schools."

He is also co-director of the Illinois Writing Project. His lecture is sponsored through a gift to Canisius from the John R. Oishei Foundation.

Power outage tied to blown-down tree

Strong winds blew down a tree, which took down a power line behind Tim Hortons doughnuts on Seneca Street in West Seneca on Thursday afternoon.

Dan Tillman, a spokesman with New York State Electric and Gas, said three customers were affected in the power outage, which occurred at about 1:30 p.m.

Another 490 customers had power interrupted at around 2:30 p.m. for several minutes while crews were repairing the line, he said.

West Seneca police said several traffic signals also were affected for several minutes during the repairs.
