United We Stand...

Dear Educators,

Our annual celebration of independence has come and gone amidst all the craziness of 2020. The tensions and stress in our country today are some of the highest we’ve experienced since our founding. It’s a good time for us to remember that we are united as a nation, and we need to take care of one another now more than ever. Especially those of us who are most vulnerable. Making a country that works for every citizen has been a value since the time of the Founding Fathers—and that fight continues today. The resources this week are a celebration of America and our American-ness!

Why We Do What We Do

It is human nature to connect to groups. We survive better together. Typically, our most influential group identity is our family—they are the people we feel most connected to. But we also feel belonging to our neighborhoods, cities, state, and country. This article talks about the importance of fulfilling this human need for belonging. As teachers, what can we do to create that sense of belonging for all our students? The answers are especially important in the world of distance learning, when we can’t be bonded by physical closeness alone.
