As we've often done in late April or early May, from 4/29 to 5/3 of 2015 we used Bill's birthday as the occasion to take a long weekend vacation. This year we didn't want to get very far from home. We spent Wednesday and Thursday nights in Galena, IL; Friday night in Madison, WI; and Saturday night in Mayville, WI near Horicon Marsh.

Google used the few pictures I took to create this nifty slide-show story.

Teachers, teacher-educators, and edu-activists: the new issue of Rethinking Schools is out. This issue's theme is "Reinventing Teachers' Unions." Other interesting topics include home visits, technology, teaching environmental history, bias in early elementary literature, etc. Have a look.
