365 Artists 365 Days Project
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

On January 1, 2014, The Frank Juarez Gallery and Greymatter Gallery launched the 365 Artists 365 Days Project to the world.

What started as a way to spotlight contemporary artists daily from across the country blossomed into getting the attention of artists from across the globe such as Germany, Slovenia, Australia, Russia, London, Israel and the United Kingdom.

What began as a one-year project rapidly grew into two-years of highlighting artists from across the globe. It was great to see the enthusiasm of artists through sharing our posts especially their own. Although this project is has come to a close, the plan is to keep the site up & running. This project is too important to take offline.

Abe Lincoln's Crossroads
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Abraham Lincoln's Crossroads is an educational game based on the traveling exhibition Lincoln: The Constitution & the Civil War, which debuted at the National Constitution Center in June 2005.
The online game is intended for advanced middle- and high-school students. It invites them to learn about Lincoln's leadership by exploring the political choices he made. An animated Lincoln introduces a situation, asks for advice and prompts players to decide the issue for themselves, before learning the actual outcome. At the end of the game, players discover how frequently they predicted Lincoln's actions. A Resources Page keyed to each chapter provides links to relevant Websites on Lincoln and the Civil War, permitting students to explore issues in more depth.

Rating

Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is a process intended to provide academic and career planning services to students in grades 6-12 in public schools across the state. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) contracted with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) to conduct a three-year evaluation of the pilot and roll-out of ACP. This report contains the findings from the 2015-16 pilot year evaluation and WEC’s recommendations based on those findings. The evaluation included three major components of data collection and analysis: telephone interviews with pilot team coordinators, surveys of all pilot team members, and mini-case studies of four pilot districts.

Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is a process intended to provide academic and career planning services to students in grades 6-12 in public schools across the state. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) contracted with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) to conduct a three-year evaluation of the pilot and roll-out of ACP. Key findings from the 2017 ACP evaluation report include: Administrator buy-in is key to program success. • Some teachers still resist ACP based on fears of increased workload and lack of expertise. • Some stakeholders are uncertain and suspicious about the future of ACP, compliance, and monitoring. • Students value ACP programming and want it to be rigorous, encompassing, and personalized. • Students often do not see the full reach of ACP outside of dedicated ACP time. • Family knowledge of ACP is generally low; families want to know what they can do to better support their children. • Districts experience difficulties in sharing knowledge about ACP with local and regional businesses. • Districts want to better understand and communicate about outcomes

Accessing and Evaluating High-Quality and Equitable Resources
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

With the understanding that instructional materials matter, a team of ELA teachers from the Sheboygan Area School District set out to develop a process that would enable us to determine if the materials being used or materials we plan to use in the future are considered to be high-quality resources and will lead to equitable instruction.

The resources supplied were developed as a result of research and investigation into the work of EdReport.org, Achievethecore.org and various other resources that support the work of equity.

The process that we outline is intended to help teams evaluate resources that support major shifts in the Common Core State Standards specific to writing instruction. The tools linked in the process are adaptable to various grade levels and subject areas providing the team has unpacked the subject/grade level standards and share a common understanding of the skills and expectations in those standards.
