TeachersCount Blog Strives to Raise the Status of the Teaching
The new blogging series for the
2011 - 2012 academic school years began in September. Discussions are changing month to month, each month focusing on a different topic. October’s
topic is standardized testing. Some aspects being explored are: High stakes testing- is it distorting and undermining the learning process? The survival of
schools and teachers has become so dependent on test scores, is this
giving powerful incentive to cut corners?
If you’re not reading
the TeachersCount Blog you’re missing out! The bloggers are Keith Newman a
teacher in the inner city of Philadelphia; Cathy Wilson, a junior high school art teacher in Utah; Esther Wojcicki, a high school journalism teacher in Palo
California; Darla Moore, a middle school teacher in Ohio; and Tanya Diaz, who teaches gifted middle school students in Miami, Florida. Dr. Susan Neimand,
Director of the School of Education at Miami Dade College, are serving as the TeachersCount expert advisor to the monthly discussions.
TeachersCount invites you to follow and participate in this insightful blog series.
TeachersCount is seeking

Science teacher to share their opinions with our growing readership. Email your personal information and a brief writing sample to
