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.

Carnivals, Carnivals, Carnivals!


If you’re as busy as I’ve been for the last few days, you’ll look forward to winding down with a few education carnivals.

What It’s Like on the Inside is hosting the 169th Carnival of Education – and there are lots and lots of good entries here.

Personally, I don’t think that Carl Chew is much like John Adams, the American Revolutionaries or any other American hero, but someone does.

The Carnival of Homeschooling is over at – I particularly liked Jacque Dixon’s post on gardening/homeschooling.

Carnivals, Carnivals, Carnivals!

carnivals everywhere

For your reading pleasure, take a peep at the 162nd Carnival of Education hosted by Mister Teacher and this last week’s Carnival of Homeschooling hosted by At Home With Kris.

There are plenty of good entries to keep you busy. I haven’t read so many from each Carnival in weeks.

It’s Carnival Time Again

It’s that time of week again… the Carnivals are up and commanding attention.

The 137th Carnival of Education is live at The Education Wonks including my entry about the Ed in ’08 campaign. You can also browse last week’s Carnival at History is Elementary.

Beverly Hernandez at About Homeschooling hosts this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling – it’s a clean, easy format with lots of solid posts.

Secondhand Thoughts has given Best Practices in Education the nod for this week’s Wednesday Website. It’s a good choice – 30plusteacher’s content is informative and engaging and I, like Eric, would love to see more of it!
