Some fresh links

February 17, 2007 pm28 10:34 pm

Links I’ve added in the last week or two:

  1. Educator on the Edge is a non-New York version of Pissed off Teacher. It’s not just NYC that makes life for talented, experienced teachers difficult. These two should be mandatory reading. While mentioning POT, two things: First – Go, run, look at her latest post with the photos from her school’s ‘portable classrooms’. And link to them. Or put up your own. Second, when going to POT, click links, don’t try to type, since there is strange spelling in her url (teeacher?).
  2. e of e’s ponderings is a Bosnian one-time Salt Lake City resident who now teachers college students, mostly preservice teachers, in Ann Arbor, and does math. I wonder how much of that was correct?
  3. Denise from Let’s Play Math has taught or tutored math from Kindergarten through college. She’s homeschooling her kids now. The blog is focussed.
  4. Math mom is a highly involved, um, math-oriented mom. Not a homeschooler, but very involved.
  5. Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub. Ha! What a name. Math teacher, I think, but an all around education oriented blog. Smart.
  6. Hal of Hal’s House of Pancakes is a math teacher. Slightly random-topic blog.
  7. Brown-eyed Girl is a student teacher (elementary) somewhere in Massachussetts, I think. Not afraid of math. Not my usual link, but there is something upbeat and fun (even when the class was neither!)
  8. Daniel Livingstone at Learning Games is a professor of computer science in Scotland (?) and works with games and thinks learning with games is, um, interesting, teaches about computer games, but is skeptical about some of the claims, all the same.

So, go visit them all. See for yourself. There’s lots of neat stuff out there.

    As of yet all of it is correct :)

    Thanks for the mention! I wish I didn’t have so much to gripe about. . .

    They are not exactly the same gripes as we run into in most New York City HS’s, but those of us in small schools may recognize some of the playing teachers off against each other.

    Once you get past the details though, yeah, it’s way too familiar.
