The personal learning network for educators
Teachers College Columbia University has developed a set of curriculums that educators might find useful as they prepare for the new academic year.
The first resource, Understanding Fiscal Responsibility, is a curriculum for teaching the federal budget, national debt, and budget deficit. It has lessons and activities for these subject areas: Economics, Civics/Government, US History, World History/Geography and Mathematics. This is a free resource from Teachers College, Columbia University; please share with colleagues who might be interested.
The curriculum (available online and in print) includes:
-24 lessons connecting students to current public policy issues regarding the federal budget, national debt, and budget deficit,
-supporting documents and resources that supplement the lessons,
-the option to create an account and create a site for your classroom in the UFR Network and share your lessons with fellow educators.
The second resource, Pursuing Your Passion-Lessons from YoungArts’ MasterClass, is a study guide designed for educators to integrate the arts into the classroom. This platform allows teachers to:
-Create their own customized curriculum using the lessons and activities available on the site to integrate the arts into the subject areas of the humanities, visual & performing arts and math & science.
-Develop a free website to connect with their students in the Teacher Network.
-Have free access to HBO’s inspirational MasterClass mini-series online.
