Up to $5,000 for school enhancement projects

Lowe’s is asking nonprofit public K-12 schools and/or parent organizations to apply for funding to make improvements to their schools. There is usually a preference for funding requests that have a permanent impact such as facility enhancement — indoor and outdoor — as well as landscaping or clean up projects. Projects that encourage parent involvement and build stronger community spirit will be favored. But this year basic needs will also take priority.

$5,000 for teachers and school professionals to improve students’ academic achievement

The NEA Foundation is providing grants to improve the academic achievement of students in public schools and public higher education institutions in any subject area. The proposed work should engage students in critical thinking and problem solving that deepen their knowledge of standards-based subject matter. The work should also improve students’ habits of inquiry, self-directed learning, and critical reflection.

Proposals for work resulting in low-income and minority student success with honors, advanced placement, or other challenging curricula are particularly encouraged.

The program aims to applaud young people who already are making a positive difference in their towns and neighborhoods, and to inspire others to think about how they might contribute to their communities.

Our Courts’ teaches civics lessons via online games

SiteofWeek090209A free computer game for teenagers created with the help of former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has made its online debut. “Supreme Decision,” the first of several planned web-based games, went online in August as part of a project called Our Courts. In it, students can play a Supreme Court law clerk helping a justice with a tie-breaking vote over a First Amendment case. Backed by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and Georgetown University, the Our Courts project is designed to teach middle school students about the Constitution and the courts. O’Connor, the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court, has said more people can name an “American Idol” judge than the three branches of government. Besides teaching about civics, she hopes the Our Courts project will help students learn how to analyze problems and develop arguments. In “Supreme Decision,” students play a law clerk and must help fictional Justice Irene Waters write the majority opinion on whether a school can ban students from wearing music band T-shirts. Another game, called “Do I Have a Right,” will be released soon. In that game, students will play the director of a constitutional law firm who must decide which amendment resolves a problem posed by a client. http://www.ourcourts.org

9/11 Survivors and Families Honor the Fallen with the Country’s First Comprehensive Curriculum

9/11 Survivors and Families Honor the Fallen with the Country’s First Comprehensive Curriculum
 
The Sept. 11th Education Trust and SocialStudiesSchool Service come together to help students learn from the terrorist attacks
 
Culver City, CAAugust 31, 2009– The Sept. 11th Education Trust, a nonprofit organization representing survivors and families, and Social Studies School Service, a leading provider of materials for schools, have created the first comprehensive curriculum for students.   Teachers, parents and elected officials across the country recognize the need to fold the events of 9/11 into classroom instruction.  Now they have the tool with which to do so.
 
“Our goal is to help students remember the human dimension of these events,” said Anthony Gardner, Founder and Director of The September 11th Education Trust and brother of 9/11 victim Harvey Joseph Gardner III. “With this curriculum, it is now possible for students to understand the history of the 9/11 attacks as they honor and remember the victims and survivors.”
 
Drawing upon the educational expertise of Social Studies School Service and the Taft Institute for Government at QueensCollege, The Sept. 11th Education Program: A National Interdisciplinary Curriculum is a multimedia curriculum that can be used as independent lessons or as a yearlong course of study. It provides seven curriculum units filled with inquiry-based interactive activities tied to national standards and a multitude of primary sources, including 70 first-person interviews with survivors, victim’s family members such as Beverly Eckert, and politicians such as Rudy Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, and others.
 
The seven units for students in grades 6–12 include:
  1. Visualizing 9/11
  2. The Historian’s Craft: Timelines
  3. The Post-9/11 Recovery Process
  4. Designing a 9/11 Memorial
  5. Honoring Heroes
  6. Advocacy and the Role of Government
  7. U.S. National Security and 9/11
 
Each unit includes first person interviews with people like Howard Lutnick, Cantor Fitzgerald’s Chairman and CEO, who lost his brother and 658 employees on Sept. 11th. It also includes interview transcripts, a video timeline of the day, lesson plans, an interactive Website, student handouts and advocacy activities that focus on acts of public service and civic participation which support President Obama’s recent establishment of September 11th as a national day of public service and remembrance. A full scope and sequence is included with each unit.
 
Social Studies School Service is making available a free 12-minute Remembrance Video, discussion questions, and a Web forum for discussing student reactions. Visit www.LearnAbout9-11.org to access more information about this curriculum and to view the free Remembrance presentation.
 
About The Sept. 11th Education Trust
The September 11th Education Trust, founded in September 2001 as the WTC United Family Group, is a nonprofit organization directed by 9/11 victims’ families, survivors, rescue workers, and educators nationwide.  Evolving from its genesis as the WTC United Family Group, one of the original and largest of the 9/11 community organizations, the September 11th Education Trust produces comprehensive, flexible, and engaging 9/11 and civic literacy education programs that are personalized and enriched through firsthand accounts, filmed oral histories, and authentic, primary archival materials to permanently record this shared historic event in a way that is not stagnant, but inspiring and relevant to the nation’s youth.
