Cooperative Catalyst’s Year in Review 2010-Most Viewed Posts

As the end of 2010 nears, we want to thank all of our readers and responders for a thought-provoking year at Cooperative Catalyst! In a little less than a year we, as a cooperative, have posted over 270 original pieces from over 30 authors on our blog and tallied around 40,000 views….WOW!  As we continue to grow in the new year, we remember that we have come together to think deeply and pragmatically about the art of teaching. We are committed to honoring students as responsible learners who are capable of and yearn for so many more opportunities than traditional schooling has typically provided.

We began this venture with the vision of “challenging one another to propose sustainable solutions and structures for re-imagining schools and education, supporting one another to enact and refine the ideas.” The conversations, questions and ideas we have engaged in have indeed challenged us to examine and re-imagine our own corners of the world while we learn from our colleagues, near and far.

We will end this year by grouping some posts together as a way to reflect on the varying perspectives and discussions we had over the year. Here’s the first of our groupings, the posts that were most viewed by visitors to our site. Which ones resonate with you?

  1. And many thanks to you, the writers, for enlightening us and giving us fresh food for thought almost daily. Here’s to many more years of sharing and learning together.

  2. I encourage readers to sample widely and to compare and contrast early and later posts – you can see different kinds of interactions during different “eras” of the Coöp’s first year.

    Thank you to our entire community for thinking with us, speaking up, and acting out in class –

    All the best,
