A Compact for Reading Guide: A Reading Partnership Action Kit Compacts are written agreements among families, teachers, principals, and students that describe how all partners can help improve the reading and other language arts skills of kindergarten through third-grade children. This guide is a user-friendly handbook designed to walk a family-school compact team through the steps of building and implementing a Compact for Reading. It provides information, strategies, examples, and checklists to help parents, educators, and community members develop effective, workable compacts that can increase family involvement, student skills, and achievement in reading. Associated with this guide is the School-Home Links Reading Kit, which includes activities for children from kindergarten through the third grade that teachers can provide to families for at-home reinforcement of in-school reading and language arts activities.

The Universitys Grounds are considered among the most attractive campuses in the country. In 1976, the American Institute of Architects proclaimed Thomas Jeffersons academical village as one of the outstanding achievements in American architecture. In 1988, the Lawn was named to the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. The School of Architecture is located on the northern slope of Carrs Hill, traditionally the home of the president of the University. Within the precinct of the School and on Rugby Road are located the Bayly Art Museum and the Fiske Kimball Fine Arts Library. The library houses an outstanding collection of more than 150,000 books, periodicals, photographs and drawings, and more than 195,000 slides. Digital materials augment research in architecture, architectural history, urban and environmental studies and the fine arts. A University arts precinct is planned to surround the school and will include, among many new facilities, a major performance arts center.

Extractions: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 WASHINGTON, D.C., MAY 9, 2000 One of the key findings of the Scholastic Inc./CCSSO Teacher Voices Survey is that salary isn't the only issue. Approximately 8 out of 10 respondents felt that higher beginning salaries were needed to keep new teachers in the classroom and that better pay scales were needed to encourage experienced teachers to remain in the classroom. However, teachers also cited lack of respect for the teaching profession as a major stumbling block to recruitment and retention. Respondents said it is a key reason why thousands of good teachers are leaving the profession, contributing to the need for two million teachers by 2002. Unsolicited, 79% of responding teachers said respect for the teaching profession is needed in order to retain qualified teachers. The Scholastic Inc./CCSSO Teacher Voices Survey's
UNL Department Of Modern Languages And Literature frequently organizes Government Service, Int'l Business fairs. they teach Englishin a French high school. with very strong academic records planning to teach http://www.unl.edu/modlang/undergrad/french_gradprep.html
Extractions: A language major, like most liberal arts programs, is intended to give you a broad general orientation, not prepare you for a specific career. Teaching in high school or at the university level is one opportunity for language majors, but these careers require additional training in Teachers College for high school teaching or graduate study for college teaching. Most language majors, however, do not go into teaching; they use their language skills in connection with some other interest in fields such as government service, business, the travel industry, journalism, law, etc. Thus a double major or graduate work in professional schools for a law degree or an MBA is often recommended.

Teach-At-Home Features We don't always have a normal school day during This year we're planning to takeour family vacation used in preparation for spelling bees and science fairs. http://www.teach-at-home.com/NNelson.asp
Extractions: June has always been the month we begin a new year of home schooling. I don't know if it is because that is the month we really began officially in 1993, or if it is because of the climate we've lived in for the past seven years. In 1994 we moved to the tropical island of Okinawa, Japan and it was always just too hot to do all the fun things that people in colder climates look forward to doing at the beginning of summer. We now live in central Texas and my kids still whine and complain about the heat (unless, of course, they're in the pool). We can't go the pool EVERY day, so we spend the long hours in the air conditioning working on science and art projects we never seem to have enough time to do during the other seasons of the year. We also do a lot of organizing and mental planning for the coming "school year".

Year Round School teachers who are planning to teach another grade of participation because the usualparticipants are in school. fairs, summer camps, and other activities would http://homepages.wmich.edu/~a8odell/Year Round School.htm
Extractions: The concept of year-round schooling has been around for over three decades, but it is still a rarity to find a school operated in this way. Many schools have converted to year-round school (YRS) but soon converted back to the traditional nine months of school and summers off school year. Schools that are operated year-round today are generally found in larger states like Texas and California due to their high levels of population. The National Association for Year-Round Education estimated that more than "2 million students were enrolled in more than 2, 900 U.S. year-round schools in 43 states" (http://www.ed.gov/databases/ERIC_Digests/ed449123.html). Every year the numbers rise, drawing our attention to YRS. Is this going to be the norm in the future? So how do year-round schools work? First of all there are a number of ways to arrange a YRS calendar. The most common schedules consist of either the "single track" or the "multi-track" calendars. The single track calendar, which is the most popular form adopted by year-round schools, consists of four nine-week terms (45 days) separated by four three-week vacations (15). This makes up the 45-15 single track plan. The other popular plan is the 45-15 multi-track plan. On this plan students are divided into four groups (A, B, C, D). For example, groups A, B, and C would be in school while group D is on vacation. Then when group D's vacation is over, group A goes. This calendar allows for more students to attend one school, decreasing the costs of producing new schools.
Extractions: Your student teaching experience is potentially a rich opportunity for strengthening your competitive edge as you approach the employment market. With a little strategic planning and a lot of enthusiasm and hard work, student teachers can make their quarters in the classroom sources of rapid professional growth and powerful job-hunt assets. THINK AHEAD. The district in which you student teach can be a critical factor in determining your later job prospects. Many education majors give little thought to selecting a district until the last minute, or simply rely on the student teaching office to assign them to a local school district. Districts located near colleges and universities which offer teacher preparation programs often have an oversupply of candidates, and can be difficult places to secure employment. You should consider how your selection of a district will affect your future. A little advance planning now will pay dividends later. -Do your homework.

Extractions: Ideas, experimentation, and expression are words that conjure up thoughts of discovery and invention. Science projects allow students to define, investigate, and synthesize their own concepts using the scientific method. In this problem-based, hands-on approach to science, you never know who will be the next Madam Curie, Albert Einstein, or Bill Nye. What ingredients go into a winning science fair project? Ask CyberBee. He's been scouting for the most practical and valuable sources of information that will answer this question. These sitings will help you and your students with the nuts and bolts of science fair preparation. What better way to begin organizing and designing curriculum than to read the blueprints of seasoned educators? CyberBee found excellent benchmarks and criteria in these handy guides. Written for and by students in grades 3-6, this Minnesota school site will allow your students to see a sampling of elementary projects. In addition, you will find two concise, expertly written guides - "Experimental Science Projects," by David Morano, Associate Professor, Mankato State University, and "Steps to Prepare a Science Fair Project," by Yvonne Karsten - to be very useful in your classroom. Karsten's suggestions on what makes a good science project, her ideas list, and paper guidelines will be especially helpful to students.

THIS DIGEST WAS CREATED BY ERIC, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC Science fair projects have long been familiar events in schools throughout the country, and they have come to represent science in action, science as inquiry. The investigatory aspect of science fair projects fits wellwith current reform efforts guided by such publications as "Science for All Americans," "Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy," and the "National Science Education Standards." Classroom science is steadily being transformed into a process-driven, inquiry-based area of study, and science fair projects provide additional opportunities for students to become personally and directly involved in scientific investigation. Elementary schools participate in science fairs for a variety of reasons: to stimulate student interest in science, to provide students with opportunities for research and active inquiry, to publicly recognize students' completed projects, and to provide students with opportunities to share their work (Perry,1995). There are many variations in format, but the primary components of a science fair project typically include an investigation, a written research report, a visual display, an oral presentation, and some sort of assessment. Learning some scientific facts or principles is a valuable fringe benefit for students doing projects, but the primary objective for science project work is to teach students to think (Tant, 1992, p.5.)

Extractions: i n t e r v i e w s student interviews back to Student Life menu Ian M. Toner, undergraduate student, Architecture Of all the campuses I visited, this one seemed the most attractive place to spend four years of my life. When I visited here, students in the studio stopped work at their drafting tables to ask if I had any questions. I sensed their friendly, open attitudes, and that same collaborative, generous spirit holds true today, now that I am completing my studies here. I also serve on the Design Council, and that has been an interesting experience for me. Students are competitive in a positive way, not against each other, but competing to make the school a better place. back Lauren Kaye Bostic, undergraduate student, Architecture The design of the studios facilitates the supportive relationships that develop here. The open, airy use of space encourages undergraduate and graduate architecture students to look over each other's work and to offer helpful criticism. There is a strong emphasis on drawing in the program, as well as opportunities to study over the summer for a full semester overseas. I completed the seven week summer program in Vicenza last year, and I took a side trip to Barcelona. This was an important part of my architectural studies, and I think the University offers a good choice of programs abroad.
