An oldy but goody. If we always are asking for a 'right' answer do we end up killing creativity? How can we make learning authentic?


Save the date. Make a change. Once you go #worksheetfree you'll never go back. #NoWorksheetWeek is Feb. 27-Mar. 3.

In 2015, the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU), California State University (CSU), and the New Teacher Center (NTC) collaborated on a groundbreaking effort to create a day of professional learning for more than 10,000 educators across California. The second annual “Better Together: California Teachers Summit” will be held on July 29 this year. The Summit is expected to attract more than 15,000 teachers who will engage in a day of learning and collaboration with other educators across the state.

More details on the sites hosting the 2016 Summit will be shared via email later this month. If you would like to be notified when registration opens, visit http://bit.ly/CalifTchgSummit2016
