Working to be a better reminder: The 150th Carnival of Education comes to you from the Education Wonks, the organizers of the entire enterprise. 150 editions? We can call it an internet institution now, can’t we?
Self interest forces me to be more timely with this notice — a post from this blog is featured, a post on the astounding proposal to award degrees in creationism to educators in Texas.
But that’s one of the lesser reasons you should check it out. Education bloggers give insights on how to improve your classroom that you cannot get anywhere else in such timely fashion, nor so ready to cut and paste into your lesson plans.
Why read it?
- Another school monkeys around with recess
- What do global warming and education reform share? Compare and contrast
- Wisconsin looks at requiring better instruction on unions and labor history (hooray!)
- Shocking revelation: Home life affects school performance (real research)
- An 8-year-old hero; what’s it like to teach one? (if you read only one, read this one)
That’s a small sampling. The Education Carnival is, week in and week out, one of the more valuable digests of blogs on the web. Teachers — and students and parents — are lucky to have it.
(By the way, is the Carnival of Education blocked from your school’s access? What’s up with that?)
