The Numero Uno 2012 Edition of the Education Buzz--Life's a Carnival

Welcome to our first Education Buzz Carnival of the New Year. I initially resolved to have a clever New Year's Resolution Edition, but that resolution lastest about a nano-second because I was having trouble focusing and being witty–probably because of this whole weight loss thing. So let's just cut our losses (or the lack thereof) and call this edition the Numero Uno 2012 Education Buzz--Life's a Carnival and get cracking…

Let's do a little re-gifting with Nancy Flanagan's post. No, silly, not the present kind. She's talking about  "Re-Gifted: The Prickly Politics of the Academically Able over at Teacher in a Strange Land. She asks, "Are we cheating the gifted? Not any more than usual." 

Promise me you won't  become one of those Teachers You Don’t Want To Meet that Pat talks about over at Successful Teaching

Education guru Joanne Jacobs presents College dreamers meet reality giving us an update on what happened to those 59 fifth graders who were promised a college education back in 1988.

Jane Goodwin champions learning for those late risers over at Scheiss Weekly. while Tim over at Assorted Stuff shares how to be a better learner.

Oh and don't forget to check out my post on why we should all try out for Survivor.

If you missed science guru Steve Spangler's video about how to open a can of Pringles, prepare frozen food and celebrate Tebow touchdowns, you need to watch his video. (It's hilarious especially the ending.)

Funny About Money offers a solution for high education woes with his Modest Proposal while Mike the Gardener offers up how to combine vegetable gardening with science and math.   


Well that concludes our Numero Uno 2012 Edition of the Education Buzz–Life's a Carnival. Join us here again on Wednesday, Feb. 1 for our next edition of the Education Buzz.

Thanks for including Funny's grand scheme to make all exiting college students employable...and maybe someday educated, too. ;-)

I thought your intro was pretty witty-but, that's just me I guess. Good carnival. Hope to be in the next one.
