Three Education Carnivals This Week

I’d suggest that you down some buttermilk to make your stomach impervious to all the Carnival food… but the last thing I want in my stomach while I’m on a ride is a gallon of buttermilk. It’s probably a lose/lose.

The first edition of the GlobalScholar ‘Everything Education’ Carnival is live. They’ve got three midways – College, How-To and K-12. AdvantageEdu’s post on 100 Ivy courses you should take for fun is worth a close look and a bookmark.

The 141st Carnival of Homeschooling is up at Why Homeschool? – and if you don’t subscribe to that blog, you ought to. It’s one of the most thoughtful education blogs I read. The 141st is the super hero edition… and they aren’t heroes from comic books.

The 188th Carnival of Education is up at Core Knowledge. Matthew Needleman at Creating Lifelong Learners wonders whether classroom themes are all that necessary. Some are purposeful, others are… well, window dressing.

    Thank you for your kind words about our blog.

  2. Henry,

    Not a problem – the Carnival of Homeschooling is always diverse and interesting, too. It’s sort of bittersweet. I love it, but I know that I’m going to spend 2 hours reading its posts. :)
