I work with an awesome group of educators @. Formed under the leadership of @, the mission statement “Leadership, Service, Innovation; Partnering for Success” encompasses what we actually do everyday.
Here is what might seem to be a “no big deal”example of what our mission statement looks like in action, especially when there are numerous sources of new information. My colleague @ forwarded me an email about the Literacy Design Collaborative which has a treasure trove of free, literacy-rich Social Studies resources. Now, via this post, numerous other educators will either become aware of @ free resources or be reminded of a resource that was unintentionally forgotten.
It is common for the subject area coordinators in @ Education and Learning Department to share ideas and resources, and this collaborative environment yields an ongoing flow of valuable information.
So take a look at the literacy-rich Social Studies resources found here and share with other educators.
