The Carnival of Education is a weekly roundup of salient blog posts and articles from the the education blogosphere hosted by The Education Wonks.
Some highlights from this week’s midway:
- Edspresso follows up Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s resistance to a $200 million gift to fund charter schools.
- Going to the Mat examines measuring teacher effectiveness using the same Sabermetric analysis employed by Moneyball-driven baseball teams.
- Joanne Jacobs reveals that interdisciplinary projects are often heavy on the art and light on academics.
- Cold Spring Shops reinforces the obvious: if teachers want more pay, they’re going to have to do better.
- Dr. Madeline Daniels explains the self-fulfilling prophecy of how encouraging legitimate self-esteem brings real achievement.
And, of course, my entry about the Advanced Placement philosophy.
A note from the Wonks:
Next Week’s Carnival midway will be hosted by Matthew Paulson over at Getting Green. Contributors are invited to send submissions to: ggreenblog [at] hotmail [dot] com , or use this handy submission form. Entries should be received no later than Tuesday, April 3, 2007.
