Facebook - Ask a Teaching Question Skyrockets:

Ask a Teaching Question

If you haven't joined our Facebook page yet - you NEED to - seriously - people have been answering questions and sharing ideas ever sooooo much - the sharing has been wonderful.

I have also been slowing adding each facebook question to the website to keep them altogether in some sort of searchable 'filing system' as there is just so much great information there.  In the meantime - you can look through all the questions and answers on our Facebook Timeline.

Thanks everyone for contributing and helping our community of educators with answering questions.  Please don't be afraid to ask questions - If you are finding something tricky - you can guarantee your question will help others as well.

You can ask questions via facebook (you will need to direct message me with your question) or our website.

 

Teaching Ideas:

While teaching questions skyrocket - Teaching Ideas have been few and far between (actually there has been so many ideas fromquestion answering that it kind of balances it out) - and I haven't really been promoting the teaching ideas this month.Teaching Ideas

BUT - it's still alive and kicking (and still a great database to look through ideas) and I will plug idea submissions a bit more this month as teaching idea / lesson idea sharing is so valuable (not to mention you could win a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP )

If you have any fabulous teaching ideas  -  that work so well for you - please share on our ideas page...

 

Resource Updating Stage:

Thanks for you support with our updating resources stage - I feel sooo much better about putting time into refreshing the older resources.   We hope you are enjoying the changes.
