This podcast includes 3 websightings and an editorial entitled “Education That Matters.” Learn about how students can balance the US federal budget online (at least experiment with different approaches to accomplishing that goal) and gain insights about string theory through NOVA’s fantastic website and video series, “The Elegant Universe.” The editorial, “Education That Matters” focuses on the importance of teachers analyzing the long term impact of the assignments and lessons they give to students. Featured stories include my experiences with a Nazi concentration camp survivor and liberator last week, and discussions with a young student about science, writing, and the implications of that dialog for teachers providing choice in student literacy activities. Challenges for this week include checking out my photos of Vancouver in the week to come, and providing positive, specific feedback for Room 208 elementary student blog publishers.
