Quickie Carnival

Dr. Homeslice is hosting this week's Carnival of Education. (It's #117, for whoever out there is counting.) The presentation this week is a series of one-line invitations to read.

It reminds me a bit of a summarizing strategy I've used with students. They'd read a piece and then I'd ask them to sum it up in a single sentence of 20 words or less. Some of my favourite classroom "arguments" among students centered around the word choices for these sentences. It was a great way to engage a lot of kiddos.

Anyway, do click on over to the Carnival and see what there is to see!
