Blog Update- Popularity of Posts


I’ve been posting less frequently since June, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t that much going on in education or education policy. We’ve got NCLB getting older and not reauthorized. We’ve got nearly every school in California preparing to enter program improvement. We have budget cuts and swelling class size. We have “Race to the Top” and Arne Duncan. And we have movements that may put more teachers to work making important policy decisions.

But life calls, and we have to make choices about our time. For a mini-update, I thought I’d post the data on the popularity of the posts I’ve written over the past year.

My post on National Curriculum Standards has apparently been used by many students in education programs. Lots of aspiring robot builders have checked out my pages on robotics, and many gamers have picked up my piece on Describing Character Actions in Dungeons and Dragons.

Least favorites include most of my pieces on economics. Surprisingly, not a topic of high interest.

My personal favorite is “Science Tomorrow” but it’s only got about 30 views, but has been posted elsewhere too.

What’s your favorite post?
