Thailand, or better know by many as the Land of Smiles, is one of the most common destinations for international educators. Thailand is beautiful and safe and there are an abundance of jobs for teachers. There are also many place to visit and some of the most amazing sites on Earth!
Here is a great resource for A Deep Unit of Character study based on the Units of Study. It lays out everything really well.
The American Library Association announced winners of the nation’s outstanding children’s books this week. At the top of the list is “We Are Water Protectors,” a picture book created by two Indigenous women.
It was illustrated by Tlingit artist Michaela Goade and written by Carole Lindstrom, Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe.
The selection is history-making, marking the first time an Indigenous person has ever won the Caldecott Medal.
The medal is the award for the most distinguished American children’s picture book.
Here is a great Black History Month Hyperdoc. This Black History Month choice board features the lives and stories of Black individuals who should be known by everyone!
The 2021 Inauguration Choice Board featuring activities that support design-based learning, higher-order thinking, and media literacy competency development. Check it out! Try it out! Best for middle & high school students, but could be adapted for younger grades.
I find the virtual fairs to be a waste of time. Live and in person is best but that is not going to happen this year. We have to do the best we can in these very unique times. What I hope doesn't happen is that all of these fairs continue to be a waste of time for everyone. If schools are not looking, stop posting. Schrole posted tons of jobs in the past few days but no replies. Is it not respectful to at least offer a letter of acknowledgement?
