Debbie's Teacher Blogs

Debbie Shults, the veteran teacher, literacy coach -- and now blogger -- we interview in this week's "Teachers at Work" column, recommends these blogs written by and for teachers:

"Jess Timmons, my young blogging mentor, has a blog called Meaningful Fragments. Jess's website was my original inspiration, and reading her posts keeps me in touch with what our best young teachers are thinking."

"Zach Chase, another young teacher in the Sarasota County Public School system, has a fabulous blog called, Mr. Chase's Room. He is a definite guru in the world of educational blogs. His posts are always thought provoking and innovative."

"Darren Kuropatwa. I found his blog, A Difference, through a link on Zach Chase's blog. Darren is a math teacher who writes about all kinds of ideas, especially what's on the cutting edge in integrating technology into the classroom."

Heavy Thinkers

So many of us blog. That's the fun of it. Your Uncle Fritz writes a blog about scrimshaw. Your kid's teacher writes a blog about elementary education. Your book club writes a group blog about, well, books. And these heavy duty thinkers write blogs that explore a world beyond their books, lectures and performances:

Lawrence Lessig writes about the culture of the internet and cyberspace law

Edward Tufte has been described as the "Leonardo da Vinci of data" (not a traditional blog, per se, but very much his own approach)

Richard Edelman founded of one of the world's largest PR firms

Musical innovator Moby is also a writer and activist.
