Required Readings

Required Readings, 11 July 2013

Good morning, teachers and learners! I am reaching out to you via TIME TRAVEL! Actually, I wrote this post 3 days ago, in anticipation of me traveling and not having an opportunity to update today. I am in London at the moment, hoping that my toddler will adjust quickly to the 5 hour time difference…

I’ve got required readings!

Citizen science goes archaeological! Get your Indiana Jones on by helping researchers map Britain’s Iron Age.

Elsewhere in the Isles, The Church of England is flailing its arms, trying to figure out how to become relevant again.

Across the Pond, The City College of San Francisco has lost its accreditation – mainly due to budgetary issues.

Can’t get to Patrick Len’s workshops at Cosmos in the Classroom later this month? He’s got his presentation on Rubric Sorting Student Essays on his blog. Presentation is applied to astronomy class, but is useful to all disciplines.Good job, P-Dog!
