Excerpt From Great Richard Rothstein Book

I like education writer Richard Rothstein a lot, as you can see from some previous posts. I just learned that an excerpt from his excellent book, Class and Schools: Using Social, Economic, and Educational Reform To Close The Black-White Achievement Gap. is available online. I also included several quotes from his book in my own, Building Parent Engagement In Schools. I use his research to help reinforce why schools need to work with parents to respond to the major impediments to student achievement outside the schoolhouse walls. Thanks to Susan Ohanian for the tip. Share...

A Look Back: What Were The Number One Websites For Learning In 2007 & 2008?

  Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.   I first began publishing “Best” lists in at the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008 (there are now 1,600 of them!). Here are the sites I identified as the best in their respective categories for that year, along with my original commentary.  Surprisingly, they are still  online.  Even though I wouldn’t say any one of them is still the “best” available (except, perhaps, for Henny Jellema’s site – that is an extraordinary one for Beginning ELLs), I think – apart from Tumblr – they all still provide good learning experiences: Best Web 2.0 Application For Education: Tumblr — This “micro-blogging” site upgraded their service this year.

VoiceThread also provides a...
