May 2022

Dear Educators,

May is Mental Health Awareness Month—a time to prioritize social and emotional well-being. Late spring can be particularly challenging as you juggle assessments and finish up the school year strong. No wonder Teacher Appreciation Week falls in May! We hope you take time for yourself this month (and always).

To support mental health awareness with your students, this month’s newsletter features movies highlighting topics such as self-esteem, conflict resolution, and mindfulness.

Warmly,
Jackie Glassman,
Director of Educator Content

FYI, BrainPop has updated their Primary Source feature

BrainPop

BrainPop recently made significant updates to their Primary Source feature, making it even more useful for remote and in-person learning needs. Now students can answer free-response questions directly on their site and submit answers immediately for a teacher’s review.

With Primary Source, students can deepen their understanding of a topic by closely examining real historical artifacts and answering free-response questions designed to prompt critical thinking and deeper exploration.
