JAN 2020

The start of a new year is a time to rejuvenate, celebrate, and reflect. And with a new semester upon us, many teachers will use this time to seek new resources, strategies, and opportunities to enhance their practice and students' learning. That's why GPB Education is continuing its commitment to create and curate exceptional free content for Georgia teachers and why we're kicking off 2020 by highlighting 366 free educational resources for 366 new days!

NPR is inviting students around the country to create a podcast, then - with the help of a teacher - compete for a chance to win the grand prize and have your work appear on NPR. The NPR Student Podcast Challenge begins on January 1, 2020 and ends on March 24, 2020. 

  Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Every year on the third Monday in January, we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This holiday provides teachers and parents the opportunity to talk openly with kids about America's history, the values Dr. King and other civil rights activists fought for, and how we can continue to strive for and promote equal rights. While these are heavy topics to tackle with young learners, picture books offer a simple and engaging approach to help children understand Dr. King's role and the purpose of the Civil Rights Movement.
