I entered the teaching profession hungry to learn how to be a great educator and ready to become the next National Teacher of the Year! I watched Stand and Deliver, Freedom Writers, Dangerous Minds, Lean on Me, and Dead Poets Society, just to name a few. I was ready!
March 14 is National Pi Day! [ Insert your own annual Pi Day pie joke. ] Pi Day is all about 3.14159265359, the mathematical constant that appears in formulas, physics, and even architecture. Teachers have shared many assignments in our library that incorporate concepts using π. See below for Pi Day assignments that cover middle school and high school math and even elementary ELA!

As classrooms celebrate Black History Month throughout the month of February, we wanted to share a collection of assignments created by teachers in our community. Incorporate these resources into your lessons to honor great leaders, writers, artists, athletes, and scientists and to help guide students through discussions about civil rights. These assignments can be used not only during Black History Month but year-round in your classroom.

At this PD they emphasized and re-emphasized the importance of text selection when teaching students to read.
