The Weekly Spark
Welcome to The Weekly Spark! Where you review and vote on some outrageously uncommon ideas blended together that will spark ideas for fun and engaging K-12 lessons that include relevance, rigor, and real-life application.
Here’s how it works:
- We choose some subject standards
- Then we throw in a few interesting themes
- You can vote on which lesson you’d like to see from the mix that week
- At the end of the week we’ll take the winning concept and make it into a highly-engaging, creative, standards-based lesson that you can use!
Take a few seconds and choose what lesson you’d like to see. Because we’d probably want to see it too!
