The contest, identified by the hashtag #XCurricular, encourages teachers to create high-impact and creative cross-curricular lessons using at least one Kids Discover resource. Complimentary access to the platform will be provided to those who do not already have it. Each submission should include information on the “big ideas” of the lesson, acquisition of knowledge and skill, the learning standards that the lesson addresses, a step-by-step learning plan, and assessment. Lessons will also be judged on practicality and originality.
From today, September 26, 2016, through October 31, 2016, teachers can submit their entries using this Google Doc Template. The winners of the contest will be announced on November 7, 2016.
Educators can submit to #XCurricular for free. Prizes include:
· 1st Prize: Site License ($2,500 value)
· 2nd Prize: Three Educator licenses and Kids Discover print titles (more than $800 value)
· 3rd Prize: $300 credit towards Kids Discover products
