Hi Member,
Happy New Year! Our mission at Tch is to take teachers inside classrooms to see other great teachers at work. With that in mind, we are excited to kick off our “Open Your Door” campaign for 2014 to help you get more out of Teaching Channel and stay engaged with your professional development! In the coming weeks, we have all kinds of new videos, blogs, site features, and tools to help you dig in: 
  • We will be launching a new "how-to" video series to help teachers discover all the great features on our site – such as Notes, Lesson Planner, and My Workspace. 
  • We will be creating new video playlists to help you with guided reading, math lessons aligned to the Common Core, inquiry-based teaching, and much more. 
  • Many of you have asked for videos on expeditionary learning, project-based learning, global competency, and social and emotional learning and we are excited about an incredible new video series we'll be launching soon to help you learn more about innovative teaching practices from these programs. 
  • Stay on top of all our launches and events by connecting to Teaching Channel on FacebookTwitter, Google+, and Pinterest
  • And share your goals for 2014 so we can better support you!
We hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday break. As the year presents itself anew, may you discover many new opportunities to teach and learn from each other.
