Making the Most of "What's New With _____ (2020)"

Sep 10, 2020
Tips for Teachers

Beginning in July, a series of weekly articles were posted on the NGPF blog to guide you through recent developments and current events for each of the units in the NGPF curriculum. In this challenging year, much of the content included is related to the pandemic.


The hope is that these updates make it a bit easier to keep your lessons fresh as you have a full plate to begin with. They are designed for teachers to be able to bring themselves up to speed on anything happening in a particular topic prior to finalizing lesson plans in order to make them as current as possible, and might provide some ideas for bringing recent events into the class discussion on each topic.


Here are the links to these updates so you don’t have to go back through all of the blog posts to find a particular topic.
