We pay close attention to the newsletter features you do—and don’t—like. Below you’ll find the “greatest hits” from the past year, including our Top Five most read items. Rediscover popular lesson plans, articles, posters, and other classroom resources.

Plan to join our Fall 2011 National Student Writing Competition where students will respond to the YES! article, “Why My Dad’s Going Green.” We will be announcing the winners of our Spring 2011 competition in our next newsletter.

My thanks for the energy and commitment you bring to your students and your teaching. Here’s to a rejuvenating summer!

Happiness   HAPPINESS

What makes us happy? National Institutes of Health (#5) lesson plans teach your students why we need sleep—and it’s not just about survival. The Global Oneness Project curriculum uses film, lessons, and stories—featuring people from Tibet, Ecuador, and beyond—to help your students better understand the importance of oneness in their own lives, community, and the world.

Peace and Justice   PEACE & JUSTICE

How do we help students learn to build a fair and just world? Curricula from Raffi’s Centre for Child Honouring and Voices embrace young people’s rights to be safe, respected, and loved. Resources get to the heart of what it takes to create the world they need and deserve.

Sustainability   SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is not only about local food and Mother Earth. It’s also about fair economies and social justice. Take a resilience quiz to find out how resilient you really are (or have room to grow). Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots curriculum (#2) nurtures your students’ leadership skills as they learn how to enhance the livelihood and survival of the animal community, the human community, and our environment.

Teaching Outside the Box   TEACHING OUTSIDE THE BOX

Meaningful learning isn’t about memorizing facts. It flourishes in the context of people and everyday life, and happens in and beyond the classroom. Here are tools to help Guys Read (#4) and discover what really is going on inside those teenage brains!

Your Stories   YOUR STORIES

Here are treasured stories from your colleagues that have made you nod your head with an uh-huh, smile with gratitude and admiration, and laugh out loud.
