Classrooms are decorated, gifts are ready or getting finished and both students and teachers are in a particular good mood. You just can tell that teacher appreciation week is kicking off today. From now on, you can show your respect and appreciation for your teacher during an entire week, especially on Tuesday May 4th because than we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day.

“Teacher appreciation makes the world of education go around.”
Helen Peters. Whether you are 8 or 18 years old, you live in South Korea or in Sweden, you are black or you are white. Everyone around the world has at least one teacher who has inspired them and motivated them to keep on going and never give up. The only thing we can give back is showing our appreciation for their work and effort. This appreciation makes teachers aware of what their efforts mean to us and keeps them doing the great things they do. Students from different country celebrate this in their own way, with their own and unique habits and on different dates.

Today starts the week during which students of the US can express their gratefulness for what their teachers have taught them. Today starts the week where for once the teachers don’t give, but the students do. Today starts the week that entire classes work together to surprise their teachers. Today starts the week that makes teachers feel good about what they do. Today starts the week that makes the world of education go around. Today starts Teacher Appreciation Week.

This year 2010, you will have the opportunity to celebrate all teachers from May 3rd to May 7th, and more particularly on Wednesday May 5th, i.e. International Teachers’ Appreciation Day. This period is a great opportunity for students to demonstrate all their admiration to their teachers by organizing little shows, team works and by giving presents. This holiday is honored in no less than 50 countries all over the globe.

Teachers’ Appreciation Day is a famous holiday implemented with the goal to thank teachers for all their work and commitment. More precisely, it is the perfect opportunity to think about the education they have been providing all over the year, through all kind of subjects and for all, without discrimination. Teaching is not easy, it requires passion and devotion; qualities that must be rewarded at least 1 week of the year. Students always think of many ways to show their recognition. Each new Teacher’s Appreciation Day is a new chance to innovate and to be creative. In a few weeks now, students and teachers will gather around to spend some quality time together and pay tribute to Education in general.


Debatepedia Documents All Pros And Cons Of Merit Pay For Teachers


Released on: May 20, 2009, 4:27 am
Author: Debatepedia
Industry: Education

May 19th, 2009 — Washington, DC — Debatepedia has developed the world’s most extensive article on the pros and cons of merit pay for teachers. The article draws over 30 pro and con arguments and quotations from over 20 of the most outstanding editorials, opinion pieces, essays, and political statements on the issue. And, it structures these arguments and quotations in Debatepedia’s unique pro/con “logic tree” structure. The structure helps separate the primary sub-debates (and arguments and counter-arguments) in this debate, which are represented by some of the following questions: Does merit-based pay improve education? Does it improve the quality of teaching by incentivizing hard work? Does it help attract and retain quality teachers? Does it help weed out bad teachers? Does merit pay distract teachers? Does it create undesirable competition between teachers? Does it discourage teachers from going to needy schools? Can teacher merit be successfully measured? Or does varying student performance get in the way? Is merit pay fairer to teachers? Does it fall pray to principal cronyism? Does it encourage teachers to cheat? Does the market demonstrate the importance of pay for performance? If teachers should be paid more in general, is merit pay the best way to do it? What do past examples of merit pay around the world demonstrate? Debatepedia’s community has outlined the pros and con arguments and quotations that fit within and respond to the above sub-debate questions, making it truly the most comprehensive breakdown of the debate available.

President Obama has repeatedly stated his support for merit pay for teachers. Yet, with many priorities on his plate, it would appear that the debate will continue for some time, and even after any policy decisions are made, the debate is likely to continue for years to come, in the United States and abroad. For this reason, Debatepedia’s pro/con structure is particularly valuable in helping walk citizens and decision-makers through the many arguments and quotations so that they can effectively deliberate, make decisions, and make the policy that will guide education in the 21st century.

Debatepedia is a wiki encyclopedia of pros and con arguments and quotations. It is essentially “the Wikipedia of pros and cons”. Started in 2006 by Brooks Lindsay and William Wnekowicz out of Georgetown University, Debatepedia subsequently merged with the International Debate Education Association in 2007. IDEA is a 501c3 non-profit piloted initially by the Open Society Institute in 1999. While IDEA promotes debate in all of its forms around the world, Debatepedia fits within its mission to expand a new industry in journalism – what it calls the “in-depth journalism of public debates”.

Teaching System Brings Joy to Teachers in Public Schools


Released on: July 17, 2008, 8:50 am

Press Release Author: Eva Bogard, Ph.D.

Industry: Education

Press Release Summary: It’s music to everyone’s ears: No more tests or homework for students. No more lesson planning or taking work home for teachers. 100% of students participate in rigorous activities supporting the state learning standards. Teachers, students, administrators, and parents are pleased with The Joyful Teacher System of creating peaceful classrooms of students learning independently, thereby allowing teachers to individualize one-on-one instruction.

Press Release Body: SARASOTA, FL- July 17- Dr. Eva Bogard has created a revolutionary new teaching system in the Sarasota County Public School District. Known as the Joyful Teacher System, educators create utopia in their classrooms through a specially designed teaching framework and classroom décor.

Dr. Eva Bogard provides teachers of all content areas and schools a unique means of creating and maintaining peace in their classrooms, while promoting independent student learning; making it possible for teachers to focus on one-on-one differentiated instruction for all children. The stress-free teaching system results in an improved learning environment able to accommodate all levels of students from learning challenged to gifted.

The Joyful Teacher System could change the state of education in public schools. This framework creates a more effective teaching environment than traditional lecture or teacher-driven classroom designs. Students choose their daily work from a menu of options, while the instructor uses clothespins labeled with student names to meet with each child in the given order. The most unusual feature of this system is that it includes a specific décor for the classroom. A series of nine posters placed in specific locations anchors the desired focus of the classroom, and the use of floor and table lamps avoids the harsh effects of overhead florescent light panels common in most public schools. Photo CDs are the final touch in creating the ideal learning space. The beautiful photography of local artist Jennifer Breuer inspires students and teachers with images and motivational statements projected on the classroom presentation screen throughout each class period.

Dr. Bogard stated, “I’ve been using this system for over 3 years and everyday in my classroom is a joy. I’m ready and excited to share how I do it with teachers and college students getting ready to join the teaching force. This system benefits everyone.” Teachers can get a head start on the quickly approaching new school year and begin applying the system with the step-by-step guidebook, a comprehensive manual, CDs and specially designed posters available online for immediate download at www.thejoyfulteacher.com.

Dr. Eva Bogard earned her doctoral degree from the College of Education at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She has been teaching for 18 years and is a member of several professional organizations. Dr. Eva Bogard offers free training classes every summer to introduce teachers to the Joyful Teacher System and all materials are available for purchase online: www.thejoyfulteacher.com
