2008 Edublogs Nominee


My nominee for the 2008 Edublog Awards for Best Resource Sharing Blog goes to Jackie Roehl's Edina National Urban Alliance Program Blog.

For those unfamiliar with the National Urban Alliance (NUA), they are an organization whose mission is:

to substantiate in the public schools of urban America an irrefutable belief in the capacity of all children to reach the highest levels of learning & thinking demanded by our ever-changing global community.


Through the use of Thinking Maps, teachers and students use specific strategies to give meaning to their learning. Developed by David Hyerle, Thinking Maps identify the 8 ways to visually represent information. Jackie has done an exceptional job on her blog offering resources and insights into incorporating NUA strategies into curriculum from a variety of disciplines. She is very deserving of this award!
