Our world is changing at a break-neck pace. In this whirlwind climate, how do we effectively educate the next generation to engage in American democracy, thrive as lifelong readers, succeed at college and career pursuits, and compete in a global economy?

After a decade in the classroom, I know that for teachers, this is a necessary, noble, and yet overwhelming challenge. We are committed to helping you successfully meet this challenge.

Our resources are designed to make your job as a teacher and educator easier in two ways: by drawing relevant connections between what students are learning in your class and actual events, trends and circumstances in the world around them, and by helping you develop in students the literacy, problem-solving and higher-order thinking skills they need to thrive in school, careers and citizenship.
