The start of a new year is a wonderful time to explore the past year’s most important news in your classroom. The New York Times Learning Network is encouraging students to write a rap about the year’s news. Students should include information and stories that garnered the most attention in 2015 and create short, 12- to 15-line raps. Winning entries will be published on The Learning Network blog.
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.
The GRAMMY Foundation’s Music Educator Award shines a spotlight on the excellent and impactful work being done by thousands of music teachers across the United States. To be eligible for the award, educators must teach music fulltime in public or private schools, kindergarten through college.
The Longview Foundation funds projects that directly support fostering global perspectives in K–12 teachers and students. The Internationalizing Teacher Preparation program focuses on preparing future teachers, implementing promising practices for internationalizing the education of all preservice teachers, and increasing the number of world language teachers, especially in less commonly taught languages.
