Are you interested in participating in an online exchange program for high school students?

In planning ahead to next school year I am looking for teachers to partner with in running an ongoing online collaboration in which our  classrooms discuss and compare local culture, traditions, geography, and industry as well as share stories from students' individual lives.

Once I have found teacher partners we will work together to design the details, logistics, time-frames and student expectations for the project.

Please contact me if you or someone you know might be interested.

Created a free teacher lesson planner web app with Google instant login that I'd love for you guys to try out and give me feedback on!

Helps organize your resources to the common core, and even suggests Khan, CK12 and other free resources to use. 

Feedback appreciated!!!!
Standards Planner quickly organizes teachers lesson plans to the Common Core and other standards, as well as provides thousands of resources and material for the classroom. Create, share, and collaborate with your peers.

Do Common Core Standards help or hinder interdisciplinary instruction?
Where do the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) fit into interdisciplinary instruction? Some educators contend that the CCSS encourage interdisciplinary teaching; others argue that the standards are getting in the way.

In the early 1900s, John Dewey argued that subject matter was too fixed and that it needed to be differentiated in order to meet t...

I agree with you Liliana, making connections to real life is key to student understanding. The opportunity is there if the structural challenges mentioned in the article (common planning time and professional development) can be overcome.
