Let Us Help You With Your Resolutions
You’re quickly approaching the 100th day of the school year, and you’ve decided to refine and refresh your teaching methods as you enter the long stretch from January through June. So far, many of your students are coming along nicely, but others are struggling. So you resolve to make a few changes to get all of your students excited and invested in learning. What resolutions will you make?
1. The Habitable Planet comes in at first place. Use the online textbook and videos to teach your students about environmental science or update your own content knowledge.
2. Learn Spanish now with the tried and true Destinos telenovela and web activities. Travel the world with lawyer Raquel Rodríguez as she solves a mystery for a dying man.
3. Discovering Psychology, hosted by Dr. Phil Zimbardo (left), is an intriguing introduction to the mind and its workings. Topics include language development, judgement and decision making, memory, and more.
We recognize you only have so much time in a day to look for new resources for teaching and professional development. Check out the You May Have Missed chart with links to Learner series, student interactives, and more, all related to your Learner favorites.
