  • Blog Post: National Geographic Map Brings Social Studies to Life

    Getting kids interested in social studies can be a project.

  • Blog Post: For Mr. Hines

    When I was in high school, I had an incredible history teacher named Mr. Hines. Mr. Hines created magic in his classroom – when we were studying the War of 1812, he didn’t say a word the entire class. Instead, he just played the Overture of 1812 , and drew the events of the war on the chalkboard...

    Our first Parent / Teacher Conferences are next week. In my school district, teachers try to contact as many parents as we can to make appointments. We email, we send notes home with students, and we call. We stay at school until 8 pm a couple of nights to accommodate parents' work schedules. We provide...
