The Carnival of Education is up at So You Want to Teach?
The Carnival of Homeschooling is up at Janice Campbell, Taking Time for the Things That Matter.
The submission that caught my eye and has been the most helpful to us this week was How We study Plutarch from Higher Up and Further In. Now, we're not Charlotte Mason homeschoolers and I won't be following and CM outline but the idea of reading Plutarch is neat. I followed the links to this page which gives a bit of an outline of Plutarch, printed it out and read it to Catherine. By the time we'd finished it we were both eager to start. The only decision to make was whether to try the tougher Dryden translation from the 1600's or go to one taylored for children ( Ambleside has links). Our final decision was to give the Dryden translation a shot (we found one here) and if it didn't work out then we'd try the other ones. We start today with Romulus.
The Carnival of Cool Homeschooling is up at Homeschooler Twins. This is a new one and it looks promising!
