    Education is different from many professions in how teachers seldom have their own space. The classroom is a shared space between students and teachers alike, and teachers seldom have it to themselves. Even during planning periods, many teachers find another teacher or another class in their room. After school, the classroom is often co-opted for after-school care or extracurricular activities.

    There’s no doubt that field trips are valuable experiences for students. They expose students to experiments and environments that they may not have access to otherwise. They also encourage students to engage in authentic learning experiences.

    On August 21st, 2017, a total solar eclipse will stretch from the Pacific to the Atlantic, stretching across the entirety of the continental United States. The eclipse will begin around Newport, OR at 10:15 am (local time) and will end around Charleston, SC at 2:48 pm (local time). This means that the majority of the United States will be in school during the eclipse, with some schools even extending hours to avoid sending students home during the darkest period.

  • Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:45:51 +0000: Taking Control of Your Professional Development with Research - PACE Blog

    This week, we have a guest blog by the Effortful Educator. It’s the first post in a series on research and professional development. The rest of the series can be found on the Effortful Educator website.

    This is the introduction to a series meant to empower the classroom teacher to take control of their professional development through research. So often, a teachers only experience with professional development is the prescribed whole-school PD that takes place perhaps once a month or through a school-wide book club. While these development opportunities can be valuable, I believe the teacher should also have the ability to find, read, and implement ideas/skills/concepts for their own development.

    Research has found that providing children from birth to five with consistent, language-rich experiences – such as talking, reading, and singing – can have important benefits on their brain development and future school success. However, many families lack access to the types of resources that can help them make the most of these language building […]
