Carnival of the Godless #51

Festival of Trees #4

Mendel's Garden #8

Tangled Bank #64

While I'm linking, I might as well mention a cool little blog called akacoolpeople.com (via Thud):

akacoolpeople.com is the website of CrossRoads day-treatment facility.

CrossRoads is a highly structured day treatment program focused on the goal of helping youth facing Level II sanctions and who are long-term suspended or expelled from school. CrossRoads provides a safe environment in which youth can learn alternatives to the behaviors that caused them to be suspended or expelled from school and to be involved with the Juvenile court. CrossRoads actively collaborates with other local agencies to provide an effective array of services for youth in our care. CrossRoads provides afterschool as well as school time programming - reducing the amount of time youth spend unsupervised the program is open year-round so that youth have a place to go during the summer.

Students log in and share their feelings about the material they learn at CrossRoads (including some really neat experiments).

Go and show your support of their efforts! More teachers should encourage this level of involvement in their students.
