Teacher Talk

Welcome to these “Teacher Talk” pages. This column is for both teachers and parents. I would like feedback from teachers on educational topics, educational jargon, edu-speak, techie-speak—whatever topics they would like to see explained in a simple way for parents to understand and for emerging/fledgling teachers to understand. You’ll see resources for teachers on some of these pages, like the STEM section, where I list and offer links to over thirty non-profit sites that have an amazing amount of free STEM resources for the classroom and for home, in addition to 50 references to corporations who sponsor STEM initiatives in their region and nationally. Other pages have “Enlivenminds Top Ten…” lists for the ideal classroom. Click on one of the topics below to learn more and, just as importantly, to give me feedback in the comment sections on what additional topics you’d like to see in the future.
