A note about Teachers College Record: Recently there was a question about an item from Teachers College Record and full-text access. This article had an unusual citation—just the date, not a volume, issue and page numbers. This turned out to be a commentary and our online subscription does not provide access to commentaries. Just a warning to perhaps save you from frustration!
We have added a blog of sources related to 3D printing and curriculum. Find it at the CML Page Thanks to Jason Matherly for curating this list. New entries will be added bi-weekly.
Please remember that Teaching Tolerance has great resources for diversity education, including suggestions for Black History Month.
We’re featuring nominees from this year’s Georgia Children’s Book Awards in the CML:
