Curriki is offering a chance for teachers to win cash for lesson plans!

This just in from Curriki (The Curriculum Wikipedia)

Have you given a lesson this year that your students will never forget? A lesson that had them buzzing about math during study hall, or gabbing about science in the lunch line?

A unit that has students chatting about class outside of class deserves to be shared with the global learning community. This summer, Curriki is giving you the opportunity to receive a cash award for publishing your most memorable lessons and sharing them with teachers and students around the world!

Summer of Content 2010

Curriki's "Summer of Content" initiative is soliciting premium content for Grades 6-12 in science, technology, and math, and for content in ELL / ESL for all grades.

This year, the Summer of Content Awards will be granted to student-focused units which include activities, WebQuests, worksheets, quizzes, projects and games that will engage students and help make Curriki a destination for teachers, as well as students.

Share your best STEM or ESL/ELL units, and earn some cash (for work you have already pretty much done!).

Applications are due July 9th, 2010 and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Click here to apply.

This might be a chance to regain some lost "furlough" income... Good luck teachers!

It looks like they all have plenty of competition. Now can we all get our friends and neighbors to work hard to get a new BOE elected?

@ Cerebration

Can you post the candidates and their registration information?

It's already posted - just click on the picture of the ballot box on the right side panel of the home page - that's where we're keeping all the candidate info.

Here's the actual link in case you would rather copy and paste -
