I have been teaching for about a decade. I taught middle school English and history on a 7/8 team in Burlington, Vermont for 7 years.
I currently teach 7th grade humanities at Shady Hill School in Cambridge, MA.
Making Class Relevant
I am strong believer in the power of current events in the classroom. I think that an article or story from NPR can breathe relevancy and life into lessons across the curriculum.
The blog collects the types of articles and links I have been emailing co-workers for past decade. I tag all entries, so that, in time teachers can visit the blog and search for an article by subject, topic, or field of interest.
Additionally, I often provide lesson plan ideas for the links and encourage followers to do the same in the comments section.
