About Us

The ThemeSpark™ free web-based teacher tool was designed by former teacher David Hunter. The creator of the innovative Zombie-Based Learning curriculum , he founded our parent company EdCourage, Inc. to offer powerful teacher tools that easily add Authentic Learning to standards-based curriculum. David has contracted with ASCD to publish a book on his unique curriculum design methods, to be out in 2016.
