the premiere issue! I created: Mrs.
Young's Super Charged
Educational Voyage: http://www.fortunecity.com/millenium/garston/49/index.html
to fill a need that I as an educator and parent feel is needed. It
is central location in which to find a ready reference of some of the best
education sites on the web. Content is geared towards that information sought
after by teachers, parents and students. The focus is grades K-12. The site is
constantly changing, as new topics are listed for further development as
requests are submitted to me. Material is a mixture of my own insights, and
links to outstanding sites in the fields. Topics range from children's safe
internet fun, to homework help, parenting skills, to teacher resources. This
site is easy to navigate and tries to make each topic appealing. I work very
hard to assure that ALL of the information is "Family Safe" and is
RASCi and Safe Surf rated. Please let me know if my site has been useful, and
feel free to make suggestions and report any sites that are no longer
It is from the comments and suggestions from you- the visitors of my site,
that this newsletter has evolved!
I am very aware of the fact that educators and parents have to squeeze about
37 hours into every 24 hour time frame. It is with this in mind that I
have decided to keep the format of this newsletter brief, and at the same time,
keep you current!
First I want to thank you, my subscribers, for your tremendous out pouring of
support for my site. It is very motivating to feel appreciated and develop
such a following.
This is where your comments on my subscription survey come into play. I
carefully read all of your suggestions. I have received many requests and
am in the process of acting on many of them. I also, have too much to do,
and not enough time. So these mailings will arrive approximately once a month.
SUMMER IS HERE!
Teachers, parents and students all over the country are ready for well
deserved R & R (Reading and Re-evaluating) [gotcha...]
This is our golden opportunity to go review the past year and reflect on how we
put our efforts to use, and explore ways to do even better next year.
To help us find the solutions to these needs I present this newsletter!
- What worked?
- Why did it work?
- What would I like to cover more in-depth next year?
- Where can I get the information I need to be best prepared for
Additions to Mrs.
Young'sSuper Charged Educational Voyage:
I have added a topic: Constructivist Theory http://www.fortunecity.com/millenium/garston/49/construct.html
This is a controversial topic, and I am trying to offer an unbiased list.
Your suggestions are welcome!
There are also some new additions to the following pages:
If anyone has additional sites to suggest- let me know. As always, I
will check it out. I reserve the right to list sites that are child
safe. If you go to a site that is on one of my pages, and it is no
longer suitable for the target audience of Mrs. Young's
Super Charged Educational Voyage, PLEASE notify
me immediately. I believe firmly in freedom of expression on the internet,
but I also believe that audience specific sites must be responsible and
accountable to it's intended viewers!
Special Bonus coming up!
The next issue will have a very special section called:
This area of the newsletter will give all of us a place to share ideas and
experiences directly related to the education of today's youth. To get

is a fact of life. Share how you make it work in your classroom.

becoming the standard. Do you

When you send in your contribution, please give me some information so your
name, position and school, organization, affiliation (or whatever) can be put
with it. Student teachers, parents and students are welcome to
participate. This can be an exciting opportunity for us to truly
network. Let me know what you think about it! I am also
open to new ideas for other sections of this newsletter. Perhaps you have
reviewed a software program, or magazine, or book you would like to share.
Send in your ideas. This is what professionalism is all about!

rewarding teachable moment you grabbed

theory that you'd like to discuss?

old that you put a fresh spin on- and just
know others will be able to use it too if you could just tell

with a new way to explain "2+2",

in your classroom? How are you incorporating

techniques? What are the advantages?

like to know?
