Explore TeachersFirst exclusive resources that spark curiosity, provide context, and engagement.
Explore four free TeachersFirst exclusive resources that spark curiosity and support classroom instruction. Let TeachersFirst help you save time and assist you with creating engaging learning experiences for your students. Enhance reading comprehension across content areas with our library of pre-made virtual field trips that immerse students in literature and build context and interest in the characters and their journeys. Support geography and mapping skills in grades 2-6 with the weekly episodic adventures of Geo and Meri. Build cross-cultural understanding and practice digital writing weekly with XW1W. Explore a web-based, interactive infographic of the Battle of Gettysburg designed to raise questions and invite connections for students in grades 5 – 10.

This session is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels.**

OK2Ask are hands-on exploratory workshops, not sit & gets. We highly recommend you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Those attending on mobile devices may not be able to participate fully and, therefore, may not receive a certificate. You are welcome to join us on a mobile device, but this may jeopardize your ability to receive CEUs.

As a result of this session, teachers will:
Understand the importance of context within instruction;
Explore, four curricular support resources that can be used to spark curiosity and discussion in the classroom; and
Plan for the use of a TeachersFirst exclusive, web-based resource in your lessons.
