Hi all. I'm compiling a list of the education sites that you go to every day when you log on -- the go-to place for lesson plans, curriculum ideas, a quick grabs for those national holidays that catch us all off guard, or the 100th anniversary of such and such. Thanks for your help.

A couple of years ago I began working with kids around the country on the Practice Project, an initiative of What Kids Can Do whose central question was "What does it take to get really good at something?" After bringing student voices to the subject of classroom culture in "Fires in the Bathroom" and "Fires in the Middle School Bathroom," I wanted to go deeper with them into the nuts and bolts of motivations and mastery--and those conversations ended up in a new book, "Fires in the Mind." On our blog, I'm posting weekly "Fire-Starters" from teachers who tell what grabs their kids' interest at the start of a curriculum unit and keeps them engaged even after the material gets hard. I'd love to cross-link with this discussion! And I hope you'll stop by to download materials and leave your own Fire-Starters on the blog, at www.FiresInTheMind.org
