Discovery Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Discovery Education - Teacher Appreciation WeekAt Discovery, learning and exploring is a core component of our DNA. This week, Discovery Education is joining in the celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, honoring teachers and the important work they do every day to support the lifelong learning of their students. To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, activities include:

  •  On May 9, from 9am to 2pm, ET, Discovery Education will provide a day of classroom events and activities, including 30 Minutes of Discovery, a program that encourages students to explore their own interests and discover new ones by using their Discovery Education accounts and other resources without a structured agenda or assignment and then share how they spent their time.
  • Teachers will receive giveaways via social media, along with appreciation messages hashtagged #DENlove. STAR Discovery Educators will receive daily gifts of technology, such as Narrable, Been, Tech4Learning, and WeVideo.
  • Courtesy of the Association for Supervision and  Curriculum Development (ASCD), the DEN blogs will share valuable articles from the organization’s flagship publication, Education Leadership. The articles cover a variety of topics including blended instruction, new literacies and the common core, and computerized tests, among others.
Check out the short message from Lance Rougeux, Vice President of Learning Communities at Discovery Education, below, and we hope you’ll join us in honoring the educators in your life!
