Thank You, Teachers!

We are thankful for teachers like you who go above and beyond to make sure students continue their learning—no matter what. Thank you for making a difference in students’ lives—not just during these unprecedented times, but every day! It’s our pleasure to serve you by providing support and resources.

We encourage you to take part in Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4-8, to continue in celebrating fellow teachers’ hard work. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter as we share ways to participate.

Resources for New Content Delivery and Supplemental Learning

Some states/districts are moving forward with learning new content, while others are only allowing supplemental learning. Here are resources for both:

  • New content: Lesson modules (LAPs) are flexible in terms of both delivery and content organization.
    • Delivery flexibility: (a) Use within the MBA Learning Center LMS, (b) upload to another LMS, (c) email PDFs to students, or (d) print PDFs for hard-copy packets.
    • Content flexibility: (a) Narrative is ready to use, (b) Gray Zone ethical dilemma works for live Zoom discussions or posting to discussion boards, (c) each has several activities teachers can pick to fit their remote learning situation, and (d) test items are provided. 
  • Supplemental learning: 21st century skills can be reinforced using the LAP modules available at no cost through the Daniels Fund. These are perfect for use across the entire school as well.
