Shop now for your classroom needs and make your purchase count for the IFT! The CTA Institute for Teaching has joined Amazon.com’s Associates Program to form Learning & Resource Centers in support of TeacherDrivenChange. Hundreds of books, materials, and classroom supplies have been selected and grouped in two Learning & Resource Centers:
Begin a search - A search engine is provided for each Learning & Resource Center. The search engine will help you quickly find a list of books and resources by author, title or topic. Contact the IFT if you are not able to find a particular book or a specific resource. Please provide the name and the author of the book. We will make sure to expand the Center to reflect your needs.
Write a Review - You are encouraged to write a review of the books you select. Your reviews will help other teachers determine if a particular book is appropriate for their needs and interests. Other activities you may want to consider include:
- Using the Learning & Resource Centers to help build and supplement your curriculum
- Supporting your own professional and academic studies and advancement
- Collaborating with other teachers in meeting the individual needs of students
- Providing parents with the necessary resources to help support their children’s education
- Contacting and working with your school site council to determine how each of the Learning Resource Centers can help your school and students
Let us know what you think - We are pleased to have this fund-raising opportunity for the CTA IFT. Let us know your thoughts on the books and resources you find in the Preschool & Elementary and Secondary Learning & Resource Centers. In addition to helping you with your teaching and learning needs, we hope the Centers will contribute to teacher research, development, and implementation of authentic school improvement.
