Let's get a new Education Carnival Going!

I was flabbergasted to find that the Carnival of Education was discontinued. While I greatly enjoy the carnival of education, I learned alot from school teachers and other educators. So, I decided to start a Carnival of Educators.

I will start the first post next Tuesday at noon. If you want to host a carnival please email me at ahermitt@ gmail.com.

I will update this page as I get all of the rules and submission guidelines together, but for now, lets keep it simple:

1. Submit original posts from your blog
2. Posts MUST BE education related, and true blogs, not commercial websites.
3. Submit by Sunday at midnight eastern standard time to get in by Tuesday at noon.
4. Submit through the carnival link http://blogcarnival.com/bc/cprof_8594.html , not by direct email.... it makes our work eaiser.

Why Farting and the art of parent communication caught my eye.

I spent the week writing the Carnival of Education. It is posted over at Examiner.com where I have the national education blog.

It was the first time I had ever written a Carnival and can't believe how much work goes into putting them together. Sure, I could have used the intant-carnival option and posted each post in order as they came with no rhyme, reason, or order, but then you would have subjected to inordinate amounts of spam posts that I did not enter. Anyway, for your maximum entertainment, I read each and every post. I learned a lot too. I suggest you read it, especially homeschoolers... teachers have great resources, and it helps to know what goes on in a teachers day.

Finally, we will get to the subject at hand... my favorite post from the Carnival or Education.

Chris Wondra presents Farting and the art of parent communication posted at Chris Wondra .com. Having a mother who was a teacher, and hearing her stories is probably what endeared this not-so politically correct post to me. It explains how students tend to manipulate situations from time to time with the sin of ommission, and also how to use tact in situations where none is present.

What does this have to do with homeschooling? Uhmmm... you do have kids don't you?
