Much of our job as teachers is identifying and fulfilling the needs of our students and ourselves! It can be hard to distinguish between needs and wants in both directions. We can misidentify something a student needs, like scaffolded reading, as something they want, and do them a disservice. We can misidentify something we need as something we want, like enough sleep, and find ourselves at a disadvantage.
At Maps101 we strive to fulfill your needs and wants with content. We know you want effective, engaging, fun content for your students, and we also know you need to fulfill content gaps and produce lessons in line with your state’s standards. The content this week is all about needs and wants, and we hope it sparks some well needed and wanted conversation with your students!
Additionally, we would love to hear from you about what more we can provide. What do you need? What do you want? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to provide you with better content, but to do that we need your input!
