Teachers Pay Teachers

A friend recently told me of the curriculum development she had done in order to successfully engage students in her specific content area while meeting the Virginia Standards of Learning. I was impressed with her work, but discouraged the school system did not acknowledge the time/effort required to build such a curriculum from scratch.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an awesome collective of teaching tools both free and for a fee.

What have you developed which could be used by other teachers?


Art(s)

Reminded today of a colleague…Jack is an artist, a painter. (He has several really cool pieces and I’m hoping to get my hands on one!) Jack is a strong advocate for youth with disabilities and an even stronger role model. Jack has differing abilities and while providing technical assistance for his colleagues and stakeholders in the disability field is a necessity in his work, painting is his passion. So in honor of Jack today, here are a couple of Art related organizations for persons with differing abilities. (both in the NE of the US, but there are many in other regions as well!)
