Focus on Elementary, v10 n1-4 Fall-Sum 1997-1998
This document consists of four issues of a newsletter for educators at the elementary level. Each issue focuses on a theme and includes an article on that theme, along with regular columns. The Fall 1997 issue focuses on using writer's clubs to encourage student writing. The news column for this issue discusses HIV in schools, and the vice president's column discusses using community projects that educate and entertain. The Winter 1997 issue's topic is "Safety in the Cybervillage: Some Internet Guidelines for Teachers." The vice president's column addresses ACEI (Association for Childhood Education International) committee updates and future plans. The Spring 1998 newsletter focuses on defining the multiage classroom. A sidebar describes the National Center for Science Literacy, Education and Technology, and the executive director's column describes resources on ACEI's Web site. The Summer 1998 issue, in a continuation of the look at alternative configurations for elementary schools and classrooms, focuses on the issues that surround inclusive classrooms and looping structures in elementary schools. The vice president's column discusses group projects in the classroom. All issues contain listings of new Web resources, and many describe print publications and relevant national awards. (EV)
