The Carnival Of Education: Week 181

Welcome to the midway of the 181st edition of The Carnival of Education!

Here's the very latest roundup of entries from around the EduSphere. Unless clearly labeled otherwise, all entries this week were submitted by the writers themselves.

Folks interested in hosting a future edition of the C.O.E. should please let us know via this email address: owlshome [at] earthlink [dot] net.

Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word about last week's midway, which was hosted over at Visit the C.O.E.'s early archives here, later archives there, and our latest entries here.

Next Week's Carnival will be hosted over at The Chancellor's New Clothes. Contributors are invited to use this handy submission form. Entries should be received no later than 9:00 PM (Eastern) 6:00 PM (Pacific) Tuesday, July 29, 2008. Please include the title of your post, and its URL, if possible. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the midway should open next Wednesday.

Special Note: Due to some disastrous technical troubles, (both hardware and very intermittent dial-up) we are presenting this week's midway "in the raw." That is, (pretty much) as they were submitted on the Blog Carnival submission form. Should corrections be needed, please contact us at: owlshome [at] earthlink [dot] net.

We apologize to our readers and hope that our next effort is more worthy.

Let the free exchange of thoughts and ideas begin!
