A Review of Catholic Education
Begun in September 2006, the blog covers all aspects of Catholic education, news, commentary, editorials, teaching and learning, Web2 use, professional development activities, reviews, magazine contents and so on.
Some unique features are a weekly cartoon (Ms Levine’s class at Halos Academy) and a now archived fictitious story of four retired teachers who meet over coffee at Emmett’s Café. There is also a feature called blogToTrust which is a catch-all blog within a blog.
Links are posted daily to news articles on Catholic education in Canada but also includes an International section. (The original design can be seen on the advertising tab.)
