The End of a School Year

thought_1678cSTAAR is done for many but the school year is not yet over so what should be happening in the classroom?  Teaching and learning, that’s what!  Every school day is an opportunity for a child to learn something new and exciting and these days at the end of the year are too valuable to just fritter away with activities that are not tied to good instruction and learning.  Now is a perfect time to do cross-curricular learning that helps students learn how English, math, science, social studies, and fine arts relate and how each brings a unique contribution of knowledge and skillset to solving new or real world problems.  Check out some of these videos/articles on http://www.edutopia.org/videos?keys=&tid_2=332&tid_1=All to see how integrated learning can happen and maybe change how we do school everyday, not just after state assessments.
