Pet Hero! 12-Year Old Feeds Thousands of Hungry Critters
Navigating cyberbullying, privacy, safety, and other digital dilemmas are a real challenge for schools. But technology also provides incredible opportunities for students to learn, connect, create, and collaborate in ways never before imagined.
Our turnkey curriculum includes comprehensive resources for students, like lesson plans, student digital interactives, and assessments, as well as professional development for teachers and materials for family education.
In just a few short days, crayons, popsicle sticks and poets will come together to celebrate the best day of the year in workplaces around the world.
Take Your Poet to Work Day is next Wednesday, July 20. (It’s always celebrated on the third Wednesday in July.) For the past few years, we’ve marveled at all the ways poets can help you out at work, from counting money in the cash register drawer to serving up espresso in the coffee shop. We’ve even seen a few poets in the board room, on the construction site, and, yes, on the beach. (Because poets take vacations too.)
So get out your scissors and glue, and join us for a day of fun and celebration with poets in the workplace. And be sure to tweet us photos of your poets at work to @tspoetry on Twitter, with the hashtag #poettowork, and maybe we’ll feature you.

Our goal is to provide educators with quality teaching materials that will enhance classroom instruction for a wide variety of commonly taught novels in middle through secondary schools.

Feel free to email us with your own contributions for us to consider as well as with any additional ideas, suggestions, and comments for improving the site.
In this day and age, where anyone with access to the internet can create a website, it is critical that we as educators teach our students how to evaluate web content. There are some great resources available for educating students on this matter, such as Kathy Schrock’s Five W’s of Website Evaluation or the University of Southern Maine’s Checklist for Evaluating Websites.
Along with checklists and articles, you will also find wonderfully funny hoax websites, aimed at testing readers on their ability to evaluate websites. These hoax sites are a great way to bring humor and hands-on evaluation into your classroom, and test your students’ web resource evaluation IQ!
Check out these 11 example hoax sites for use in your own classrooms:
Of all of these, my favorite is always the Dihydrogen Monoxide website, which aims to ban dihydrogen monoxide and talks in detail about its dangers. Only after a few minutes did I catch that dihydrogen monoxide, is after all, H2O!
