Sharing a quarter century of teaching, the Smarter Teacher blog will focus upon the Three C's: Think Critically - Communicate Clearly - Work Collaboratively.
The Three C's of education are the most important skills necessary for teachers to develop in the students entrusted to their care.

The documentary FLOW by Irena Salina is an excellent introduction to the manipulation of nature's resources. The movie focuses on the damage and social injustice caused through the ongoing privitization of water. Flow provides an opportunity to get students to link about the limited availability of drinkable water and how control of this "natural resource" may soon become possibly the most valuable substance on Earth.
The FLOW website offers an abundance of information about water and a series of links to help students take action.
