President Obama will be giving his annual back-to-school address next Tuesday (The 14th). I remember last year's speech vividly. It was the first time I'd felt so much hope in a very long time.

They've not announced the theme or location yet.

I would imagine he'll tout the successes of the Race to the Top winners, and maybe give us some details on what's working there. I would also guess he'll continue his emphasis on 21st century skills in our ever-changing economy.

Is there anything you hope he addresses? Anything you think he should address, but won't?

Here are also a couple of blog posts we did about Obama's 2009 speech:

What are you plans for tomorrow's speech? Do you plan to watch it in your class or at an assembly?

Yes! I am hoping to have my students pull out at least 1 comment that resonates with them. Then I want them to build off of that!
