I can’t suggest my own blog, and I don’t think it is that great (mostly a way to get my notes up online and students can add comments, links, questions….) – but if you are interested, here it is.
Now go and do the same thing.

  1. Oh, I did at the last minute – they just closed the nominations: http://edublogawards.com/nominations-closed/

  2. Thanks! I appreciate the list, too. These all look like blogs I’d like to read.

  3. Thanks for the nominations! My students made it into the final list for Best Class Blog and Best Wiki! They’re so excited.

  4. Wow… thanks so much for noticing (and nominating) our class network (Principles of Biology) We just started in September and are certainly excited about where we can go with this. The students are enjoying the experience and are consistently amazed that we can actually interact on a global scale.
    Also- being a science blog, you will LOVE a link to the one nominations I finally got around to nominating: Michael Doyle’s “Science teacher.” My nominating post is here: http://nashworld.edublogs.org/2008/11/22/goal-directed-exhaustion-is-ok/
    Thanks again, the students and I am quite flattered.
    😉
