Imagine that the Carnival of Education Were a List of Summer Films

By Mary Ann Zehr — June 03, 2009 1 min read

The Learn Me Good blog has cleverly recast blog posts in this week’s Carnival of Education as summer feature films.

For instance, my blog entry about teacher George Mayo teaching middle school students how to make films, and teaching literacy at the same time, is recast as Mr. Mayo’s Opus.

In Don’t Mess with the Book Whisperer, a teacher takes to heart Donalyn Miller’s recommendation that it’s not a good idea to teach one novel to the whole class.

What do you think about Miller’s seven reasons not to teach the whole class a single novel? Can some of you give some reasons why it is a good idea?
