Teachers Pay Teachers

A while back, I saw an interesting ad on Craigslist promoting a new site for teachers. The site, started by a former New York teacher (Paul Edelman), offered teachers a place to sell their lessons, classroom ideas, curriculum, etc. After months of sitting on the idea, I finally posted my classroom project.

If you are a social studies teacher and looking for a way to get your kids interested in international affairs, you should try this semester-long project and let me know what you think. It's a different (rebellious?) way to teach towards your state standards. You can insert whatever content you like into the game.
