This series is dedicated to highlighting contribution and young people learning how to make a difference. In our exploration, we dive into what’s happening, what’s coming and how schools might prepare.
The result of our hundreds of yearly school visits where we get the opportunity to see high-quality teaching and learning in action. We share stories that highlight best practices, lessons learned and next-gen teaching practice.
LearnZillion is recruiting its next “Dream Team” of talented teachers for this summer. LearnZillion is recruiting 200 amazing teachers from around the country. Dream Team teachers will work with coaches to create lessons and materials built from the Common Core State Standards. All lessons created will be available to teachers and parents on LearnZillion.com. We’re looking for teachers who want to broaden their impact beyond the classroom, learn from content experts, and challenge themselves in new and exciting ways. This summer, we are recruiting math and literacy teachers in grades 2 through 12. The work is virtual and flexible and each Dream Team teacher gets paid $2000 to create approximately 20 lessons and all related materials. Thanks to the generous support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Dream Team teachers will also participate in TeachFest in San Francisco, the first weekend in May, all expenses covered.
