Integrating the Arts into Every Subject

The CoolCatTeacher

As 2007 State Teacher of the Year in Rhode Island, Catherine Davis-Hayes is passionate about helping every teacher use the arts in their classroom. And if you click www.coolcatteacher.com/edpuzzle , Edpuzzle will give your school access to the 50,000 best lessons from Edpuzzle, organized in folders and ready to be used by teachers. So even though I just talked about doing little projects that are accessible, we’ve also done some pretty crazy big things, too.

Doug: Well, the people that started this back in about 2007… They just started recording their lessons. After teaching chemistry, physics, and computer science, I became an administrator for the next 30 years with experience at the secondary, central office, and elementary levels. In 2006 I gave up my job as an elementary principal to care for my wife who had Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Rebuilding a School Community with Maker Learning

This blog post is the second in a series where participating districts share why they are committed to providing maker learning opportunities to their students. Today, step into any of Duquesne Elementary’s shared learning spaces and you will see students immersed in hands-on design work.
