Help us find great posts!

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

Over the next few weeks we will be doing major upgrades to the website and servers. And with over 4 million posts, I want to make sure we are able to find great content posted by you all. Our goal is to make this site the best resource for Classical Education and Home Schooling on the internet and I think we can get there, but we need your help!

 

Can you help us by linking to great and helpful threads here?

 

Please put a title and link for each one and if possible, a few "tags" or a category you would put it under.

 

I are grateful for your participation and look forward to what's ahead!

8FilltheHeart's posts on writing. The original thread had logic stage writing as a tag, but I think these posts cover more than one stage.

Lewelma (Ruth's) entire Scientific inquiry thread. Truly one of the most helpful threads on this entire board for a subject with which so many homeschoolers struggle. I've summarized the individual posts, but anyone browsing should read the whole thing. I've reorganized the order of posts a bit for easier reading.

I'm sorry, I deleted this one and posted below so I could add a title so you'd make sure you'd see it. Sorry for this wasted space.....just go a little below and see what I originally said.

PS: I'm glad I did a search to find this link, because I missed this one; I didn't even know she had a website...I only knew about the original link about the vimeo videos.

ETA: The tags on this one are: c-rods, conceptual math, cuisenaire, education unboxed, math, videos

It was before my time, but there were two members, a husband and wife IIRC, who posted about math education. And there is another member who posted quite a bit about teaching logic and a progression of logic programs.

 

If someone knows the names and could link/tag that would be great!

and her few other posts on these "new" boards - she had some great ones on the old boards.

 

kate in seattle and HollyinNNV are a couple more posters who talked a lot about practical teaching, too.

 

OtherJohn, I am slightly panicking that you might be getting rid of some really great content if we can't dig it all up....I don't think in terms of "great teaching-content threads" - I think in terms of "great teaching-content posters," and many of those posters have disappeared, but their posts are still here, treasures in hiding...

There is no plans to lose any of these wonderful resources! We are collecting them to be able to link to them in a reference area after the site upgrade.

 

I am removing 4 year old threads that had 1 or less replies.

About culling some of the threads, I suggest:

- FSOT posts that haven't been updated for more than a month

- Posts with no replies over a period (covered by what you mentioned - Posts older than 4 years with 1 or less replies).

 

These threads should probably not be culled, at least not in an automated way:

- Tagged threads

- Threads with subscriptions

- Sticky threads

You have to keep the first kilt thread.

 

The Fat Americans thread,

 

The Mormon questions thread,

 

The Three Big Catholic threads,

 

The Secret Weirdness thread, (just cause that is the biggest one I ever started.;))

 

The Introduction thread, (perhaps that could be stickied so the newbies can add to it)

 

The shopping cart thread which I can't find. Also someone needs to link the first teA thread since it is such a big part of board culture, and the crock pot thread.

Here are some of them, just a few of her math posts, and many of her posts could be revived today for those who never knew her here.. Sadly, I don't have time to read every single one of her posts to find that great one on how she taught her dc to solve word problems, but here are some good ones (and some great ones.) I haven't even begun to look for some of Charon's posts. The other sad thing is that her blog is no longer available, but many of her priceless links are still good.
