Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in April.

1. SPOTLIGHT! On Autism, Hearing Loss, and Visual Impairment

When a young child has autism, screening for hearing loss and visual impairment can be difficult. A number of resources are available to help families and professionals work together to appropriately screen these children and address their special needs effectively.

2. Our Students are Watching: Embracing SEL in the Classroom

SEL refers to the act of exploring, understanding, and managing personal emotions and our relationships with others. The critical work of SEL is something that should be a priority in our schools. In fact, recent surveys suggest teachers and education leaders desire the implementation of this type of learning and instruction.

3. Ocean Awareness Student Contest

Working at the intersection of ocean science and arts education, Bow Seat’s award-winning programming emphasizes creative thinking and making in exploring the natural world.

4. IEP Goals and Objectives with Common Core Standards

The National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) has designed an app for iOS to assist educators in creating a list of students who have received IEPs and in planning lessons and goals for each of the students.

5. Initiative Connecting the Natural World and STEM

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) provides an extensive Green STEM Guidebook, full of inspiration, information, and lesson plans to inspire teachers to join NWF’s Eco-Schools USA and Schoolyards Habitats Pathways programs.

6. Parallels Between Shakespeare and Hip-Hop Artists

Founded in 2009 by BAFTA and MOBO award-winning UK hip-hop artist Akala, The Hip-hop Shakespeare Company (THSC) is a music theatre production company aimed at exploring the social, cultural, and linguistic parallels between the works of William Shakespeare and that of modern-day hip-hop artists.
