Have you seen the new Reading Rockets blogroll? It lists just a few of the zillions of blogs out there related to teaching, education, and reading. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Bridging Differences is an interesting blog on which Deborah Meier (no relation) and Diane Ravitch swap opinions and openly disagree about lots of education topics. Have you read Deborah Meier's book The Power of Their Ideas? People interested in school reform will like her style.
I've been reading I Speak of Dreams for a long time now. The author, Liz Ditz, is remarkably passionate and never fails to get to the bottom line. She knows a lot about effective instruction and kids with LD. This link will take you directly to her subsection of posts that concern LD (she's passionate about many topics).
My friend, mentor, colleague, and dissertation chair (10 years ago!) writes Teach Effectively. If you're looking for solid opinion about evidence-based instruction and educational practice, look no further. His blogroll will also take you to some interesting places!
This month's expert writes about teachers, Web 2.0, and creating teachers and students for the 21st century. The first post this month is long, but has TONS of great resources within it.
So, have some fun lurking and commenting on these blogs and the countless others you'll find yourself clicking to. And don't forget to check back here!
