The Best of I Want to Teach Forever: February 2009

I was worried that the 52 Teachers, 52 Lessons project was going to fizzle out when I had no submissions after Week 4, but after some intense recruiting, we had two more great posts this month and a few more already lined up for the future. I'm still looking for help finding top education sites outside the US so that the project can become a world wide phenomenon! In the meantime, here's this month's entries:
Besides the project, here are my top five (technically six) posts for February:
  1. Sports Statistics: Final Project and Final Reflections (2/1)
  2. The Mohawk Experiment, Year Two: First Impressions (2/6) & follow up Does It Work? (2/17).
  3. Transforming Logarithmic Functions Bingo (2/8)
  4. Life Without Teaching and An Experimental School Model (2/19)
  5. The Many Faces of Mr. D (2/24) - Spring cleaning has unearthed some treasures from my teaching career, including a series of student sketches of yours truly. If you were to view only these drawings, you might believe I was either a hairy, obese slave driver or a jacked-up baller with a lowrider. Yes, it's that good.
If you've just started visiting here this month, check out the best of January and the best of 2008 to catch up.
