It’s been more than a decade since Horace Mann teamed up with award-winning educator Alan Haskvitz to create the Reach Every Child website. As a savvy and gifted teacher, Alan had been collecting educational resources for teachers, many of them free or nearly so, and using them to ignite student learning in his classroom. With Horace Mann’s help, he made them available via the website.
But as all great teachers know, real learning is a two-way street. So to encourage more interactivity, we’ve redesigned Reach Every Child as a blog with ways for you to comment, share and contribute. Now if you have a resource to share or an idea that ties into a post, you can join and expand the conversation.
Alan will be posting new ideas and resources regularly, along with occasional guest bloggers. Together, we hope to engage in a lively discussion about teaching and learning. And we hope this helps all of you Reach Every Child.
Finally, if you loved all the resources on the old site, don’t worry. They’re still here. You can access these resources via the navigation bar at the top of the blog and via the tags and archives on the right. We hope you’ll search and explore to get the latest in Common Core lessons, ideas for classroom discipline and bulletin board ideas, to offer just a few possibilities. Use your imagination, and let Reach Every Child help open the world to your students.
