Two College of Education subject matter experts lent their expertise for content on NBC’s Education Nation website http://www.parenttoolkit.com, which launched at the Education Nation Summit in New York last month.
Laurie Curtis and Lori Goodson, assistant professors of curriculum and instruction, contributed to the nationwide project. While designed for parents, Curtis believes this website is also an excellent resource for teachers working with students of all ages.
The website helps parents support their child’s work in the classroom by tracking academic success and personal growth from kindergarten through high school. It offers parents grade-specific curriculum information, additional teaching resources and ideas to add interest to subjects. The website also offers tips for parent-teacher conferences.
