Like the Highlander, there can be only one.
March in the United States means one thing: March Madness.
The championship college basketball tournament brings out the best and worst of everyone as teams vie for supremacy. Go Huskies!
The game has spawned several copycats, but perhaps none so academic as The Junto’s March Madness – a tournament of journal articles.
The tournament is still open for nominations, but only until tomorrow (Sunday, March 6) at 5:00 PM EST.
Not sure what to nominate? I humbly suggest “The Way of Improvement Leads Home: Philip Vickers Fithian’s Rural Enlightenment” by John Fea.
Speaking of John Fea, if you teach history / social studies you should subscribe to his blog and listen to his podcast. He really does a wonderful job examining the intersection of academic study with the reality of teaching living, breathing human beings.
