Welcome to the July 28, 2010 edition of a homeschooling carnival.
This isn’t a very big issue this time. Hopefully everyone is just busy with the summer. Our next issue, which will publish on August 11th is a special one, as I have assigned the theme of BACK TO SCHOOL. So please submit any post that has to do with starting up your school year. This can be tips, organization, why or why you aren’t glad to be starting up again, the differences between starting school as a homeschool as compared to a public school. etc. Let your imagination lead you on this one, and remember to have fun with it!
Eldon Sarte presents When the Invaluable Benefits of a Good Education – BAM! – Clicked in My Head posted at Braintropolis.com, saying, “An account of exactly when I realized that a good education can make all the difference in the world.”

GrrlScientist presents Parrots, People and Pedagogies: A Look at Teaching and Education posted at Living the Scientific Life, saying, “My thoughts about an interesting technique for increasing active student participation in the classroom, improving reading comprehension and familiarizing students with quickly reading and evaluation scientific manuscripts whilst decreasing boredom and that passive classroom atmosphere that gets in the way of actual learning.”
Gloria Walker presents Free textbooks posted at College Alternatives, saying, “This article consists of a list of free online textbooks. The theme of the blog in general is earning a college degree through independent study and credit-by-exam.”
Peter Midnight presents How to Win at College Book Review posted at Official Home of the Real Mr. Controversy Peter Midnight “The Black Horse”, saying, “Review of a book that promises to make your child a successful college student.”
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of a homeschooling carnival using our carnival submission form. The next edition of a homeschooling carnival will be available on August 11, 2010.
