Notes from the Tch Laureates

A nation founded by the people, for the people, is almost entirely dependent upon a highly educated populace. This idea is much more critical in times when the disconnect between the public and the government seems to be wide and the level of distrust alarming. Yet, hope endures. And the thoughtful guidance of a great teacher is essential. As teachers, we can plant the seeds of democracy by helping students understand how to analyze and take action on a range of issues that affect them now and will continue to impact their lives in the future. Your own students can participate by engaging in Letters To The Next President 2.0.

We have the opportunity to help students decode the world through scholarly adventures that bring them to the world in meaningful ways. Whether it be teaching children about the boundaries and possibilities of using technology or how math relationships repeat themselves in real-world scenarios, the ways we help our students become more conscious and aware of the world they live in is vitally important. Tackling the tough issues with students (in addition to the other demands of teaching) can be exhausting. Take time for yourself to find balance so you can be free to engage deeply with children that are still making sense of an ever-changing world.
