A Year in Review: Best AAE Blogs in 2013
posted by: Ruthie | January 03, 2014, 09:23 PM   

Some stories just get more traction than others.  Sometimes, we know what blogs will resonate with our teachers and often they just catch us by surprise.  We’ll do our best to focus on issues our teachers care about in the coming year! Take a look back at the top ten blogs from AAE in 2013.

  1. College Board Releases SAT Statistics
    Today, the College Board, a New York organization responsible for administering the SAT, released the average data for the 1.6 million student test-takers. In addition to a drop of about 4,400 students, the SAT revealed little to no improvements from the class of 2012, with a mere 43% of students proving they are college-ready…
  2. Expensive Atlanta School Makes Headlines
    Atlanta Public Schools often evoke memories of the recent cheating scandal that rocked the national education community. However, Atlanta is now making headlines for a new $147 million dollar school that promises to help the district “dig out of a historic crisis.”
  3. California Company Offers Free Teaching Courses for K-12 Education
    Yesterday, Edweek published  an insightful article citing new trends in low-cost professional development courses. As professional development opportunities continue to expand via online platforms, "MOOC's" (massively open online courses) are now being offered to K-12 educators. Silicon Valley company Coursera recently partnered with seven universities to provide 28 free courses, with topics ranging from biology and literacy to lessons on how to structure classes and survive the first year of teaching…
  4. What’s on Your Reading List? The Top 5 Books You Should Add
    As a teacher, your life is often busy, and so you might be tempted to read books that offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of life in a classroom. A well-chosen book, though, can not only give you new ideas, but inspire as well. Below is a list of what we at AAE think are the most inspiring books for teachers released in the past year – providing both inspiration and a new way to look at your practice. Consider adding them to your reading list…
  5. AAE in the News: Executive Director Gary Beckner Speaks Out About Student Loan Forgiveness
    The notion of debt forgiveness is hardly a popular theme and rarely embraced by both sides of the aisle; however, there's a kernel of an idea regarding student loans that appears to be gaining momentum in statehouses around the country…
  6. Building Your Own Professional Learning Community: What Websites to Use
    One of the things that stood out among the data released in the recent MetLife survey, was that teachers who collaborate professionally with other teachers are more likely to seek out leadership roles and are more likely to be satisfied with their position.  This information points out yet another reason that having a high-quality professional learning community (PLC) is essential to teaching…
  7. What a Common Core Classroom Looks Like
    It’s important to remember that the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are standards and not structured curriculum.  They’re able to be implemented in a wide variety of ways and with a wide variety of teaching styles.  Contrary to rumors, the CCSS don’t have to mean an end to inquiry-based learning, or project based learning, nor are teachers being handed a list of books that they must read from or prescribed lesson plans…
  8. Creating Your Own Online Professional Learning Community
    For all the research out there pointing to the benefits of having school-wide Professional Learning Communities or PLCs, the fact remains that many schools still operate in such a way that isolates their teachers instead of inviting collaboration.  Teachers in this type of environment are not left without options for forming an effective PLC…
  9. August Teacher Resources – Websites You Can Go Back To School With
    In the midst of going through your materials, setting up your bulletin boards, and writing new lessons, check out these websites which can help you add a little flash to the new school year…
  10. Science Teacher Makes Learning “Not Boring”
    It can happen to even the best of teachers. You look around your classroom to see glazed over eyes and drooping eyelids. Yes, it could be because your students didn't sleep or even because they were up late working diligently on their homework. Or it could simply be because they are bored …

Wall tiles are usually set very close together with smaller grout courses. Our technicians use additional care to remove wall tile preventing damage to the surrounding tiles. When it’s time for floor or wall tile updates, we will do it to include a complete tile demo if necessary, and complete your new tile installation. We remove bathroom tile or kitchen tile and haul away the old tile and debris.
