Kellogg School students on a GIM trip to China gather outside the Shanghai Stock Exchange. Each year, as many as two-thirds of all Kellogg students spend 10 weeks studying and designing real-world research projects, then jet off to countries around the globe for two weeks of intensive project research. Once at their destinations, students meet with government and business leaders to learn about topics ranging from socially responsible business practices in Brazil to entry strategies for multinational firms in China.

White House Conference on Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers
Good morning. Before I begin I would like to thank the White House and First Lady Laura Bush for sponsoring this conference on teacher education and giving me the opportunity to share my experiences with you. It's an honor to speak to so many people who are dedicated to increasing opportunities for children. It's also wonderful for me to speak to a group of people where I don't have to begin by saying "If you can hear me touch your nose," or cleverly try to get your attention by saying "Who is listening?" and have you all answer by saying, "I am listening." So if you couldn't guess, I am a kindergarten teacher. There's a saying that goes something like: "Everything you ever needed to learn, you learned in kindergarten." This is, of course, just a little pressure for all of us who are teaching kindergarten! I do know that attending kindergarten taught me a lot of important lessons, but I think that teaching kindergarten has provided me with even more significant life-long lessons.

Teaching in the UK Education in the UK has seen a great many changes in recent times. The Education Reform Act in 1988 introduced major changes in the British Education System, which included the introduction of a National Curriculum and national testing. The Department of Education and Employment (Dfee) was the central government office responsible for education in England. During June 2001 the Prime Minister of England announced the restructuring of the Department for Education and Employment to form a new Department to be called the Department for Education and Skills This department will now have the responsibility for education, training and life-long learning. The aim of this department is to improve the standards in the education system.

Project Summary
Three school districts, New York, Washington D.C. and Miami, will send teams of teachers to three continents to observe and work with agricultural scientists in the field. Educators selected for participation in the TEACH program will gain first-hand exposure and experience in agricultural scientific research on an expedition to an overseas destination. Teachers will use this international field experience to incorporate the teaching of agricultural science, tied to NYS standards, as well as agricultural careers and global studies in their individual classrooms and throughout NY Public Schools. In addition to the international scientific expeditions, participants will engage in pre-trip preparation and extended follow-up activities.

2001 Summer Expedition - South Africa
July 26, 2001 thru August 18, 2001 by Ronnie Feder I was part of the Africa trip with TEACH. I loved so many things it is hard to select one...the animals and evening safaris were exciting and fun, and meeting some of the students at the Wildlife Center was a great opportunity for a mini cultural exchange. I think for me, the most meaningful experiences were the visits to schools and the opportunity to talk with teachers and even more, visit with the students. I gained a tremendous amount from the summer experience. I am only beginning to recognize many of the things.
2001 Summer Expedition - China
July 1, 2001 thru July 15, 2001 by Naima Freitas My experience in China will affect the way I teach my high school students about agriculture in the future. I now realize that the study of agriculture requires not only an awareness of plant, animal and soil science but also of environmental science, technology, history, economics, politics and culture. Though my students generally focus their studies on agriculture and environmental science within the United States, I think that it is educationally valuable to examine agriculture in both the U.S.A. and in China. The trip affected the way I think about learning. It reinforced the idea that people learn more effectively through experience. My trip to China not only taught me about agriculture in China: the concerns, research and techniques involved, but also about the culture. It was great to be able to see the actual research taking place. It was especially meaningful because I was able to speak with the scientists and researchers involved to learn about their rationale and hopes.

Wine Tasting and Lodge Trip, September 10 - 12, Thursday - Saturday
Fall Driftboat Fishing

The Rogue canyon is incredible in the fall when the big leaf maple trees turn golden and the air turns crisp. Steelhead and salmon like the fall too, and the fish run is fabulous. We run 3-day rafting trips in the fall, with the first night spent camping and the second night at Paradise Lodge. Driftboats are run with two guests and a guide per boat.
If you enjoy fishing, nothing compares to a driftboat. Rafts and bank fisherman simply cannot fish the small pockets and riffles that a driftboat can. Price is $898.00 per person, which includes the use of all fishing gear.
With comfortable lodges available for Company Meetings , the Rogue is an ideal setting for holding corporate and employee functions. We can help plan your event and can provide transportation and lodging options before and after your river trip. Let us know the details about your meeting plans and we'll put together a proposal for you.

This allows for advanced planning of educational events, festivals, and field trips. theircommunities to the Shorebird Sister Schools Web site.
Why Teach About Shorebirds? W ith all the curricula that already exist on specialized topics, the natural question arises, why should teachers use this one? While at first glance the focus appears to be on shorebirds only, a closer look reveals that these lessons teach a broad range of scientific concepts and offer a global connection to other students, scientists, and educators. Consider what makes this program unique. Shorebirds Are a Theme Easily Integrated into Many Subjects!
  • The sheer magnitude of what shorebirds accomplish in their efforts to survive is truly amazing and a great tie in to numerous subjects. For example, Hawaii has a rich culture that incorporates its most well-known shorebird, the Kolea or Pacific-Golden Plover, into its chants, hulas, and folklore. The Kolea provides a great opportunity to teach about science, but it also brings in history and social studies. Calculating distances and mapping where these birds migrate also make great opportunities for bringing math and geography into the classroom in a relevant and fun way.

Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership proven solutions (not just theories) to the problem. Rest assured the answer is not in more "gun control", as the gun prohibitionists would want to brainwash America into believing. In fact, the problem IS gun control.

Schiller, currently residing in the little town of Nassau, 70 km northwest of Frankfurt. I work as editor-in-chief of VISIER, a 168-pages strong general interest gun magazine which I started eleven years ago in Stuttgart and which has now grown to be the most influential and best selling gun magazine in all of Europe. Of course with a gun magazine published in Germany, politics are at the forefront of our editorial work, and we have an eye toward the past. NRA's Steve Halbrook has been just over here and I was glad to help him with his research on Jewish resistance during WW II. Over the years I published a number of books on shooting, police, terrorism, military history etc., most of these under the pseudonym of "Jan Boger".

It was March 1994, and 100 physical science teachers from around the state were meeting at the Science Museum of Minnesota (SMM), in St. Paul. At the time, SMM hosted four teacher conferences a year, in partnership with the Minnesota Science Teachers Association (MnSTA). John Olson, a member of the conference organizing committee (and later a nominee for ASTC's Honor Roll of Teachers), pulled me aside after one of the sessions. "Our school board just passed a resolution that requires geologic time, paleontology, and evolution to be introduced to students in the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades," he said. "Our district's curriculum team needs to develop a plan and train a lot of teachers. Can the science museum help?"

    Teach For America Phoenix corps members enjoy various living options. Most choose to reside in the central corridor of Phoenix proper, close to some Teach For America schools and many downtown attractions.This area also includes Phoenix's historic neighborhoods, Encanto Park, the Heard Museum, and the Phoenix Art Museum. Other corps members prefer to live in Tempe, approximately 20-25 minutes by car to some corps members' schools. With some corps members choosing to spend their free time dancing in hip hop, salsa, or '80s clubs, others preferring day trips to old mining towns, and still others heading for the ski slopes of Flagstaff, it is safe to say that whatever the interest, the Phoenix area can provide. Schools
    Several of the Phoenix schools in which Teach For America places corps members have been placed on three-year improvement plans as a result of low standardized test scores. These schools risk being closed at the end of this time period and re-opened with new leadership if they do not show significant improvements in student academic performance on the Stanford-9 standardized test. In response, some corps members have joined leadership and curriculum committees with veteran teachers and administrators in their schools to create systematic plans to significantly increase student achievement. Universally, all corps members are charged with the responsibility to make measurable gains in student achievement.

Where does sound come from? A. The air is always filled with sound waves. All things give off vibrations, but some have a low frequency which most cannot hear. The reason: it may take 3 minutes to make a single vibration. They may be caused by earthquakes and storms. Did You Know?

    Take me back to the Managing Food Allergies in School page
    Field Trip Tips for Parents Tips for Field Trips
    • Keep yourself up-to-date on upcoming special events in your child's school. The more time you have to plan ahead, the better. Remember that you and your child's teacher need to work together as a team to keep your child safe. Role-play with your child and practice what your child should do if a reaction is occurring. what to do if your child starts to have a reaction. Oftentimes children are reluctant to mention that they're having symptoms for fear of creating a scene. Teach your child to be persistent that, in the event of a reaction, rapid treatment is essential.
    After the event, briefly call or meet with your child's teacher to discuss what went well and what, if anything, should be changed in the future. Be sure to give praise for a job well done; a thank-you note reinforces the idea of teamwork and builds a positive atmosphere.
    Field Trip Tips for Educators
    • Update the food-allergic student's Food Allergy Action Plan. Ask the parents to review the Plan you have on file and note any updated information. Also ask parents to check the expiration dates on any medications.
