This book is for anyone who wants to learn precalculus and calculus in a fun and easy way. The book has clear explanations, gives simple problems with answers and explanations, and includes colorful, engaging illustrations and graphics. It will give students a huge head start with the advanced math that is introduced in high school. It is also extremely helpful for older students struggling at all in this subject. I wish my own daughter had had a book like this – that is why I wrote it!
Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08GJBL5R9

Please check out my other, non-math-related book that focuses on fun, creative drawing and writing.

Hello, I am conducting a research study investigating how teachers acquire knowledge of new curriculum and implement new practices in the classroom. I am in need of teachers who are in 0-2 years of learning arts integration as an instructional practice. I really need teachers to share honest accounts of their experiences whether they like arts integration, appreciation arts integration, or dislike arts integration. Please email me at [email protected] or direct message me. I would love to hear your story. Thank You #artsintegration
Hi Friends! I am looking for case studies on arts integration and environmental education/climate change projects. Please contact me or share ideas here! Thank YOU!!
Hello! I'm looking for a super simple explanation of sound waves that is NOT video. Any help is appreciated.
I am currently working on my master's degree and taking a class on project-based learning. My assignment this week is to interview someone who is well-versed with STEAM, PBL, or arts integration. Preferably someone who is currently teaching using one of the mentioned approaches. The interview consists of 10 questions max, and I can either email them or message them to you. I know everyone is busy with teaching and the holidays, but I would really love someone to help me out.
I am attempting to write a grant that uses Art as a tool for SEL during COVID. Can someone help suggest a creative, catchy title? It will be offered to students in grades k-12

Did you attend our conference last week? If you did, you probably created a collage or a one-point perspective drawing during our brain breaks. Many of you shared them out over social media using our #reimaginED21 hashtag but if you didn't, now's your chance!

And if those projects inspired you to create something else, share those too! We love to see what our people are doing to keep their creativity going - because we all know "the more you use, the more you have." 😉

Collaboration is difficult but it can open so many doors. It allows you to see your students master difficult subjects and perhaps most importantly, a good collaboration allows other teachers to see how beneficial it can be. It will open the eyes those around you as they will want similar experiences for their students.

But collaboration can't happen overnight. It requires thoughtful and purposeful planning.

And now is the time to think about it.

We all know the old rule when spring cleaning - if you haven't used it in a year, toss it!

Same goes for the files on your computer. And summertime is the perfect time to go through your computer and reorganize.

Time to confess.

Are you a:

✅ workaholic
✅ procrastinator
✅ both

So basically... if you're not killing yourself working, you're beating yourself up for *not* working?

Where is the rest in that?!

You need to free yourself. We promise that the world will not end.
