2008 Edublog Award Nominations

Joel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

Since Thanksgiving is the time for sharing, I thought I’d nominate a few outstanding blogs here. It’s hard to narrow it down, but these are the ones that came to mind now. Ask me again in an hour and they might all change…

  1. Best individual blogCreating Lifelong Learners (Matthew Needleman)
  2. Best group blogTeacher Magazine Blogboard
  3. Best resource sharing blogSuccessful Teaching (Pat)
  4. Most influential blog postCell phone cameras in the K-12 classroom: Punishable offenses or student-citizen journalism? (Dangerously Irrelevant)
  5. Best teacher blogLearn Me Good (John Pearson)

There are 14 categories, but I chose these five. Which blogs would you nominate? Check out the site, blog about it, and nominate them!

On an unrelated note, I have recently started my own personal (non-educational) blog. Feel free to contact me if you are genuinely interested in reading it. :)
