Nominations - Best Educational Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Educational Blog.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):

Unless you login via Typekey, your comments may be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment. Typekey authenticated comments will be published immediately. Update (Nov. 25): Nominations are closed. Keep checking The 2006 Weblog Awards homepage for news on finalist, linking, and voting. The voting will commence the first week of December, so keep spreading the word. In the mean time you can also join us in The Weblog Awards forum to discuss the nominees, or do some campaigning.

The World's Greatest English Class

The James Logan Courier

i nominate ashley bazins 'Journey through ECMP 355'

Just started this thing, but it is definitely educational. It's all about my adventures teaching in Japan. (For example, I have a post on comparative tongue twisters...etc.) Stay tuned, because while it is young, it will hopefully grow... WTPS3.

Rocking in Hakata

Best (new / individual) educational blog...about living on a remote Japanese island while teaching high school English in prep for grad school...and the anthrosociopoliticultural things that run through my mind.

This blog is no longer alive, but it is the father blog of the entry I already made. I studied abroad in Tokyo, Japan for one year, and this is my record of my adventures in the big city and around the rest of Japan. It is media RICH, with hundreds of photos and flash video clips to show what life for me was like.

This is the archive page, because it is no longer being updated. I made it so that prospective Waseda exchange students would have some idea about what to expect. (I was the test subject for this exchange program.)

Deas' Tokyo Study Abroad Travelogue
(no RSS feed was made available by my university...sorry.)

The English Department of an Irish secondary boarding school ...

Commontales has donated its service to the Head Start early education & child development program, which was founded in 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

All parents, alumni, educators and staff (over 25 million in all!) now have the chance to tell their personal Success Stories in both English and Spanish.

When amassed, these stories will serve as testament to the efficacy of the program and will be used to lobby the U.S. Congress for increased federal funding.
