Weekend Ed. Quote ~ May 3

“… How beautiful it is to be alive
so that even in our most lumbered days
we might meet each other, hands open,
and steady the other, walking home.”

STEM/STEAM Curriculum Resource: Spotlight on the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress consistently delivers high-quality and timely content for classroom and homeschool use. The resource spotlight of this blog post encourages conversations with students on their personal spending. The authentic, primary resource “hook” are receipts with history references. Among the most interesting are a 1861 receipt showing President Lincoln’s monetary gift contribution to a monument in honor of the early Plymouth Rock settlers.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 12

“When we intentionally respond to the diverse needs of our students, we are differentiating the product, process or content of learning according to the learning style, interest or readiness of our students. A wealth of research suggests that by framing learning with student interests in mind, teachers can increase student motivation and learning” (National Council of Teachers for English, 2015)

Webinar Research Roundtable: Technology and Student Distraction

Technology and Student Distraction

If you’ve been anywhere near a college campus, you’ve probably noticed the extent to which students are glued to their mobile devices. What do they do with them when they walk into the classroom? In one survey at six different universities, college students reported using their phones an average of 11 times per day in class.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ April 5

The natural habitat for a child is the creative world… being outside, making shapes out of clouds, having fun, throwing a ball against the wall. It’s not about sitting in front of a screen.
