These are wonderful resources.
After being out of the classroom as the classroom teacher - I find myself enjoying a challenge. I teach double block reading to level 1-2 students in 7 grade at a school that has an F for its second year.
I want to add excitement and pizazz and WOW o WOW - - yes we must follow the Standard curricullum maps- I must use a certain format-
I have my masters in EdLead USF and I am working on my PHD in ED at Walden U.
That was easy!
Please send me the best of the best known information to use with my classes - I would like all my students to read on grade level and enjoy learning ! Yes I am a frequent flyer on Edutopia
Thank you so much dear colleagues!

Also, have you checked out our list of "core strategies"? In many ways, these are the best of the best innovations that can impact student lives.
