Dear [member_name_first],

Can you believe we are already closing in on the new year? 2013 has gone so fast! There will be many celebrations during the month of December. If you are an administrator, teacher, or school faculty member, it is important to acknowledge the various holidays that take place throughout this month. Education World offers great lesson plans for informing your students of these multicultural holidays.

Whether your students are participating in holiday-themed writing assignments, doing art projects, or even singing a holiday song, The Teachers' Guide is an excellent outlet for gaining fun ideas for you and your class to utilize.

If you plan on traveling this holiday, check out the Travel Channel website for some great tips on saving money and avoiding the stress of your holiday travels.

Featured ArticleUse Arts Integration to
Enhance Common Core

Featured Article These days, integration in any area, be it STEM or the arts, seems to be the buzzword to curriculum designers everywhere. There are so many resources floating around out there with the claim of integrating content areas. Yet, true integration is often difficult to find. Indeed, integration is a rare yet seemingly "magical" approach that has the capacity to turn learning into meaningful practice.

Which of course, as any teacher will tell you, is anything but magic. Integration requires collaboration, research, intentional alignment and practical application on behalf of the teachers who take on this challenge.
