SmartBrief Education editors and writers sift through thousands of sources each day, reading a variety of content, including blogs and commentaries written by you and your peers.
In an effort to recognize some of the innovative voices in the field — quick disclaimer: there is so much wonderful content out there that I’m sure we’ll miss some — we’ve asked our team to nominate their favorite content each month from which we’ll choose two winners for the Editor’s Choice Content Award.
This month’s winners inspired us with stories about tailoring instruction to meet students’ unique needs, including an insider’s view of differentiated instruction in one fourth-grade classroom.
