We are excited to be speaking to the Polk County Reading Association tonight! Should be a fun time with make and take!

Here's some food for thought as we prepare for Spring Break:

When it started, people were really excited about integrating content areas and helping curriculum make sense. Today, though, we are seeing a shift back to teaching discreet and isolated skills thanks largely to the state of assessment in American Education. It's time to realize, once again, that if we want it to be "tasty", be memorable, and really last long term, learning should make sense to the student! Let's get back to what we know is good for kids and do it right!
