Last call for inauguration lessons!

A couple of you informed me, ever so gently, that my previous call for examples of pre-inauguration lessons was slightly premature, because much of the planning happens over the teachers’ two-week “break.”

But if you send me a note, along with your contact info, by the end of the week or Monday, your class — or school — project might still be featured in the story.

Feel free to post your plans on the blog, as well.

    The AFT just sent out a link with lesson plans and tools for teachers who want to cover the inauguration in class. I’d imagine much of this planning has already happened, but for all you procrastinators…

    I have compiled some ideas in my blog which is geared toward 21st Century students and teachers with access to technology in their schools. I have also compiled tips for watching the Inauguration with students. I invite educators and parents interested in incorporating innovative ideas into their viewing of this historic event to visit my blog.
