posted by: Alana | November 18, 2016, 05:35 PM


Last week, the United States finished one of the most contentious and bitter elections in recent memory. While there are a lot of things that could be said about the election, one thing that became clear to people on all sides is that the US has neglected teaching civics in its schools. According to The Atlantic:

The importance of writing as a communicative tool has been stressed time and again – writing isn’t just a medium of communication, it’s also an essential skill that can help leverage an individual both in the job market, their personal relationships, and, primarily, in education.


With the onset of digital disruption in today’s fast-paced world, fewer students seem to fit into the mold of the conventional and undeniably limited view of what constitutes good writing, and how to hone that skill.

The Cat, The Fish, and The Waiter
posted by: Garry | November 06, 2015, 05:53 PM

Guest Post by Rose Bergues


The Cat, The Fish, and The Waiter is a charming story penned by teenaged author Marianna Bergues. The whimsical tale would be a hit with elementary school children even if the book was constructed in the ordinary manner…but it isn’t!

The story revolves around French waiter Peter who attempts to manage a busy day at Le Petit Café, all the while being besieged by various requests. By an odd coincidence, two vacationing friends ask him to pet-sit a fish and a cat. Additionally, Peter’s new mattress is delivered on the same day. All seems to go well at first, until Peter (who seemingly has a bad habit of granting access to his apartment to anyone who asks) comes home to find the place ransacked and the animals missing.

Welcome to National Employee Freedom Week 2015!
posted by: Garry | August 18, 2015, 03:23 PM

National Employee Freedom Week (NEFW) is a national campaign aimed at educating teachers and other employees about their options regarding union membership. NEFW was co-created by AAE and the Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI) because labor unions like the NEA don’t inform their members of their legal rights to opt-out of membership, leaving millions of teachers and other employees completely unaware that they have options.

Navigating the Murky Waters of Reciprocity
posted by: Garry | June 10, 2015, 07:57 PM

There was a time when educators could count on being granted their license and then spending the rest of their career in a single state, district, or even school.  More and more often this is no longer the case.  As the economy changes, the teaching force continues to evolve.  This is amplified by the fact that the distribution of teachers is not even across the country.  While many communities, mostly urban, are experiencing shortages of teachers, others have a surplus.  Teachers in areas with a surplus may well move to an area with a shortage, gain experience, and then apply in their desired state once they are more established.

Are You Celebrating Religious Freedom Day?
posted by: Garry | January 15, 2015, 08:04 PM

Religious Freedom Day is tomorrow, January 16th. And schools are being encouraged to spend time recognizing the day as the anniversary of the passage of the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom from 1786.

Since it was first declared by President Clinton in 1993, it has been declared every year thereafter and calls upon homes, schools, and places of worship to promote and protect students’ religious rights by informing educators, parents, and students about their civil liberties.

Mike Antonucci from the Education Intelligence Agency couldn’t have put it better when he said that for unions to really make great strides on behalf of Millenials in the teaching profession it “would require sacrificing the interests of those in the room for those still outside of the building.”

We Are Teachers had a great blog post this week from Love, Teach on the mistakes the author made her first year teaching. If you're entering your first year, we hope you don't make the same ones!

If you're a first-year teacher, you can request your copy by emailing profdev@aaeteachersorg. You can read about Love, Teach's mistakes below:

Probably the best piece of advice I can give you if you're heading into your first year of teaching is "Don't be like me." I made way more than five mistakes my first year, but these were the "giantest."

Simplifying Down: The Four-Point Grading Scale
posted by: Garry | July 29, 2014, 04:18 PM

The four-point grading scale is one that most U.S. educators are familiar with.  After all, it remains prevalent in calculating the overall grade in undergraduate and graduate courses, if not individual grades.  Yet it remains largely unused at the secondary and elementary levels, although it seems to be gaining traction in recent years.
