Free Teacher Resources for Fall Magic

The semester is in full swing and we know how difficult it can be to grab your class’s attention. As a BUILD teacher, you can
 not only teach your students to become the next generation of leaders but how to be the CEO’s of their own lives. Become a BUILD teacher and unlock the possibilities. 

Teacher Resources

As an educator, there is always something to do. Between grading lessons and keeping up with changing regulations, there just isn’t enough time in the day.  Edutopia.com is a tremendous resource for educators. Here are a few great articles to get you started.

In schools, should we be empowering students to use their favorite digital tools to produce and engage with content? Research shows it can deliver surprising academic benefits.

Teachers can cultivate a positive learning environment by adapting pedagogical strategies that are familiar to students.

As student mental health issues reach crisis proportions, schools and teachers are playing a larger role than ever in providing support. Is it too big an ask? 

Halloween Fun

If Halloween is your cup of tea, here are some entertaining class activities and lessons you can try.

In high school, however, incorporating the spooktacular spirit
can be tricky. We don’t wear costumes (after all, we need those 
security cameras to be able to pick out faces!). Our snacks are highly policed. And anything that doesn’t enrich or supplement
the mandated curriculum is frowned upon.

As All Hallows’ Eve draws closer and the overall spookiness of the season reaches its peak, we take a moment to consider how profitable this time of year is for the businesses and companies that cash in. After all, Halloween is an inclusive occasion, and many can use its themes to their advantage.
