Welcome to the February 25, 2009 edition of carnival of education. I enjoyed reading everybody's posts. They were very good. I hope all of you take the time to read and comment on posts. If you have the time check out the rest of my blog as well. Enjoy!!
Andrew Bernardin presents How Bogus Beliefs Persist (IV): With Age Comes a Membership to AARP and Wisdom posted at The Evolving Mind, saying, "This post, though it stands alone, is the fourth part in a four-part series about the confirmation bias."
Larry Ferlazzo presents The Best Places To Create (And Find) Internet Scavenger Hunts & Webquests Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day... posted at Larry Ferlazzo's Websites Of The Day For Teaching ELL, ESL, & EFL.
Bill Ferris presents Create teaching portfolios easily with Google Sites posted at Instructify.
OnlineCollege presents Choosing a College: A Simple Guide for Undergraduates posted at Universities and Colleges.
Misty presents Learn the Multiplication Times Tables Fast and Easy! posted at Homeschool Bytes, saying, "Memorizing the times tables is often a difficult rite of passage in elementary school. If you’re looking for a new approach that children easily remember, try these silly stories made from the math facts that seem to stick in the mind much more that bare numbers."
Khan presents The Right Online Learning Program posted at Higher Education and Career Blog, saying, "Online education remains a social experience. It very much imitates what goes on in a typical classroom."
Bill Ferriter presents TWIT: They Always Wonder posted at The Tempered Radical, saying, "In this post, the Tempered Radical reflects on a unit driven by the curiosity of the students in his sixth grade classroom."
Hall Monitor presents Students Boycott Dance After Principal Bans 'Grinding' posted at DetentionSlip.org, saying, "I could see a lot more students following this example if rules continue to become more strict."
Corey Bunje Bower presents Sunday Commentary: The Charterization of Urban Schools Districts posted at Thoughts on Education Policy, saying, "While everybody focuses on improving student achievement, we're missing the charterization of urban districts. If you think suburban and urban schools are different now, just wait until school and community are fully decoupled in urban districts."
Insurance Toolbox presents Tax Credits and Tax Benefits from the Stimulus Package a.k.a The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Fine-Tuned Finances posted at Fine-Tuned Finances.
Darren presents Right on the Left Coast: Views From a Conservative Teacher: No Twinkie For You, You Socialist! posted at Right on the Left Coast: Views From a Conservative Teacher, saying, "Teachers union helps pass a law "for the children", but teachers sure don't like it when it's applied to them."
