Synchronicity! Peter Merholz blogs Cognitivism, which, as it turns out, is a variety of Constructivism. This essay (which I have barely skimmed) seems more level-headed than the other contructivist stuff I've read. In turn, I'm more ready to consider some heady claims for the field -- cognitivism as an organizing paradigm for human psychology? (kidding, kidding...)

what's the second letter of your name?

This collection of Chinese propaganda posters led me on a search for equivalent Russian designs. I had trouble coming up with what I thought of as archetypal Soviet propaganda posters, until I realized I was looking for a specific school called Constructivism. Constructivism turns out to be a classic old-school capital-letter Movement with (occasionally rabid) proponents in education and the arts. I want to argue passionately about ideas and make love as a political act. I want to belong to a movement. That said, I'm still looking for a good online gallery of Constructivist propaganda posters.
