Black History Month: Teaching Ideas

… And introducing Teachable Instant

We’ve added a new feature to TeachableMoment: Teachable Instant.   Every Monday morning, we offer a new short classroom activity to engage students in a topic in the news or on the calendar – in just 5 to 15 minutes.  Other Teachable Instants this past month include: Who Owns the World's Wealth?Obama's Free College Tuition Proposal, and Global Divestment Day.

In the Circle: Quiet Participation

"Our students have plenty of people in their lives talking to them or at them, far fewer people who practice listening.  They have a need to be heard into speaking." Read staff developer Marieke van Woerkom's latest blogpost.
