While in Virginia for some training, I have been reading USA Today every morning thanks to Hilton hotels. I forget what great resource of information it is. Given this, I wanted to check out USA Today online to see if there was any educational resources that could be shared here on our blog. Not to my surprise, the following information was given and is such a great resource for educators, that I decided to share:
High Schools That Work (HSTW) is an effort-based school improvement
initiative founded on the conviction that most students can master rigorous
academic and career/technical studies if school leaders and teachers create an
environment that motivates students to make the effort to succeed.
USA TODAY Education sessions at High Schools
That Work are designed to help school leaders and teachers find new ways to
implement school and classroom practices that improve student motivation and
achievement ~ so that more students graduate from high school ready for college,
advanced training and careers in the 21st-century economy.
If this bit of information is not tailored to your classroom, this site also offers a Classroom Newspaper Grant funded by Marriott Hotels. Newspapers are a great reading resource for students of all ages…
Aut viam inveniam aut faciam~ I’ll either find a way or make one!
May we seek knowledge in all things,
PS I almost forgot USA Today Education is also sponsoring a Space Shuttle Art contest now for grades 4-12. Check it out!
