    Thanks, Scott, for sharing these resources and especially for showing all the kid work you showed!! What you gave us was a vision- there ARE teachers everywhere doing this work (and letting the kids do the work), but not all teachers everywhere are doing it–and we need to expect it!

    I want to take all those questions from the social studies teacher and post them all over my school!
