EDUCATIONAL REFORM and other stuff... perception is reality, when folks believe the myth, the myth
becomes the fact.
Welcome to the Idaho Education Association
The home page for the Idaho Education Association. For teachers in
Idaho an excellent way to keep up with what their professional association is doing.
Check out the Visions of Change document. Hundreds of teachers
worked for several years on this vision plan for Idaho schools in the
coming century. One of the country's most knowledgeable people on school reform and
restructuring works out of the Boise office. Sue Scott is the Director of
School Innovation and the Idaho force behind the Keys to Excellence in Your School
Keys to Excellence
KEYS is funded by the NEA
and is founded on superb research. It's been said that KEYS is the
best kept educational secret in the country. If you're looking for a bottom up tool
to help you improve teaching quality and student achievement...KEYS has it all.
Teaching - Writing Resources
a great resource for a lot neat writing ideas. One of the neatest things about
working in an alternative setting is that I have the time to work on student writing
skills. In a traditional setting most teachers can't possibly put the amount
of time necessary into the writing process. If you teach English you know what I'm
great site for folks who want to keep up with the news. You'll notice that I have
the Idaho page set to open...but you can set it for any locality you want.
Warning...news junkies go here at your own risk.
Library in the Sky
The Northwest Learning Lab based in Portland, Oregon. This site disappoints me but I
can't give up hope. I mean the folks at this learning lab seem to be so out of the
loop. If somebody has figured out how to really benefit from what these guys are
supposedly doing, please let me know what I'm doing wrong.
The Surfaquarium - Innovative Teaching
Home page for the Innovative Teacher. This has got something for everybody.
Saved my bacon a couple of times when I needed something to jazz up a unit. Lots of
good people have contributed here. Five stars.
