Bare Bones Basic Edition of the Education Buzz–Life's a Carnival

Welcome to the Bare Bones Basic Edition of the Education Buzz–Life's a Carnival, an eclectic smattering of things buzzing about the EduSphere. 

I was going to do a clever Homecoming theme for the carnival, but I got sidetracked with all the madness from Homecoming stuff last week at my school.  If you're interested in that, just check out my post below, "Gummi Bears, Pumped Up Kicks & Things That Will Get You Fired," and you will see why we're just going to have the Bare Bones Basic Edition of the Education Buzz–Life's a Carnival this go around.

So here are some interesting posts, that were buzzing about the EduSphere…

  • While ICE.Teacher wanders and wonders about on Walking Wednesdays with her third graders, perhaps the rest of us should join her in pondering, "What if…" 

  • J.M. Holland over at Emergent Learner talks about the importance of having foster grandparents in the classroom. 

  • If you're a chemistry teacher (or even if you're not), check out the latest explosive post from our favorite science guy, Steve Spangler.

  • Mr. Teacher over at LearnMeGood discovered that sometimes when we answer the question, we have to question the answer in  "Um, that wasn't the question."
And for no other reason except for amusement, check out these 15 fictional professors that we wish were real.


That concludes our Bare Bones Basic Edition of the Education Buzz–Life's a Carnival.
