Diversity Lesson Plan Contest-Free lunch to all who enter!
- NKEA/KEA Diversity Committee
Lesson Plan Contest
By entering this contest, you have the opportunity to potentially win:
· One NKEA $100 NKEA Scholarship
· One of 4 $200 KEA Scholarships
You could potentially win both for a lesson you are already teaching!
Diversity is a priority concern for NKEA/KEA/NEA and an integral element of work toward reducing the achievement gaps between and among different groups of students. Through the lessons you teach you move your students from intolerance, bigotry, and impatience toward acceptance and celebration. Share with others how you do it.

Imagine Learning in the news
Great article about the reach off Imagine Learning.
We have all newcomers on the program and a classroom is being set up to start in January with students who are ELL and non-ELL to show real data of the impact of the program.
We are also scheduling to move IL to the cloud for those schools who are technically ready for the move. Stay tuned...http://www.catholicglobe.org/?p=4938
