    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/12/guest-blog-empowering-teachers-to-become-better-communicators.aspx

    As I begin my 29 th year in an elementary classroom I think about what I want to accomplish this year with my students. What big overall idea am I going to stress throughout the year? How can I get my students on board? Sure I will teach all the skills mandated by my rural Iowa school district, but how...

    Education Nation: A Few Weeks Later A few weeks have passed since the Education Nation promotional push, inspired by David Guggenheim's highly acclaimed "Waiting for Superman." For a few days, MSNBC focused a critical lens on public education in the United States. For a few days, pundits...
  • National Geographic Map Brings Social Studies to Life - Blog Post

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2011/06/01/national-geographic-map-brings-social-studies-to-life.aspx

    Getting kids interested in social studies can be a project. As I remember it, in grade school, social studies came right after lunch, which meant that I was more interested in putting my head on my desk than in learning what the indigenous peoples of remote Fiji liked to eat. Followed by a film strip...

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/19/guest-blog-asking-the-tough-education-questions.aspx

    A few weeks ago, I had the profound privilege of participating in Education Nation. I began my online conversation at www.educationnation.com , but wasn't able to get onto the overloaded chat. I jumped over to Facebook. Within the hour, almost 6,000 teachers "liked" Education Nation and...
  • Insider Tips: Getting Started - Blog Post

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/06/insider-tips-getting-started.aspx

    What does your school need the most? It's a simple question, but for many schools, the answer can be hard. Lack of funding has impacted resources across the board: classrooms, teachers, equipment, textbooks, etc. The list goes on and "need" is a big word for many. So today, I'm going to help you get...

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/11/making-the-most-of-a-new-school-year.aspx

    For my kids, the most exciting part of the back to school experience is the annual "drive to the school and see which teacher I got" excursion. On the Friday before Labor Day, the highly anticipated sheets are posted on the Multi-Purpose Room door. A summer filled with "I wonder who I'll get next year...

    This week, the Bing team played host at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Celebrities, snow, parties, movie screenings, snow, Robert Redford, more snow. The ten day festival is the place to be seen for Hollywood movers and shakers - and Bing was there hosting celebrity interviews, a speaker...
  • For Mr. Hines - Blog Post

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/05/for-mr-hines.aspx

    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...
  • Guest Blog: Our Schools Need...Us! - Blog Post

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/11/04/guest-blog-our-schools-need-us.aspx

    If you're like me, reading the Our School Needs entries has been extremely revealing. It was hard to read that there are children going to school in facilities that aren't adequately heated; that have moldy canopies covering the lunch tables; that have ancient playground equipment-or none at...

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/01/meet-teacher-sally-high.aspx

    The new school year has begun. For the sixth consecutive year, my small rural junior high school has earned high achievement and high growth ratings in Colorado’s standardized assessments.

    http://www.bing.com/blogs/site_blogs/b/education/archive/2010/10/08/guest-blog-making-the-case-for-parent-teacher-conferences.aspx

    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...
