Carnival of Education!

Go ride some education roller coasters at this week’s Carnival of Education, at Education in Texas. One post I read: Pass-Ed’s view on high school textbooks:

Reading textbooks promotes intellectual laziness.

Ouch! I think I agree though. For Language Arts especially, all you need are anthologies. Who cares about the commentary? I’d much rather have students find their own background, biographical, and critical information themselves, on the Internet! (This is probably not always logistically possible, though.)
