Over on Teach Effectively, I’ve posted Bogus Bowl V. This one is about the professorate’s reluctance to teach prospective teachers to employ evidence-based practices. Jump on over there and vote.
Over on Teach Effectively, Bogus Bowl III is about to close and Bogus Bowl IV is about to open. Click here to vote in (or see the results of) BB III; voting is open until about 5:00 AM (US East Coast) 11 June. The new poll will appear in a post 11 June just after BB III closes.
Update: Here’s the link for the new BB.
Janet Lerner, editor of Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, sounded a note of congratulations:
Congratulations to Bryan G. Cook and Melody Tankersley for receiving the James M. Kauffman Publication Award for their special issue of the journal, Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal. Bryan Cook and Melody Tankersley were the guest editors for Volume 14, Number 3 on “Side Effects of Inclusion: The Unforeseen Impact of Including Students with Learning Disabilities.”
I posted a new entry in the series about disingenuous reasons educators use in explaining their practices. This one is predicated on contemporary rejection of testing. Follow this link to cast your vote.
We’ve returned from the long journey. We moved from Ruffner Hall to the location for my private server. Here’s a link to a Google map showing the path. However, there was no physical movement. It was done via this (or a similar) route:

The upshot of all this is that one should be sure to use http://SpedPro.org/ for this little corner of the Internet. If you mistakenly go to the old location, though, you’ll be automagically sent to the right place; in fact, if you go to a great long URL that points to an old post on the old site, your browser will show the same post at the official site.
I’ve finally moved into 2007.
We’ll be adding two new tags to the set of categories for posts.
- Advanced training opportunities—A tag for entries that describe opportunities to pursue advanced educational preparation in special education; this category is mostly for announcing doctoral training programs in special education.
- Positions in higher ed—A tag for entries announcing the open faculty positions in special education.
SpedPro is now running. Fully functional.
