Teachers' Domain @ MTA Conference

Last month we visited the Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA) conference in Williamstown, MA. Thanks to all of you who stopped by our booth and shared your stories about Teachers' Domain in the classroom.

Our featured teacher of the month is Brockton High School Science Teacher Eleri Merrikin (pictured below) who said:

"When I teach a topic like the nitrogen cycle, I supplement the textbook with a Teachers' Domain video segment, diagram or Flash interactive, and the resources often become the centerpiece of our class lesson. They are invaluable because they support about 45% of my students who have a visual learning preference and have difficulty reading science text. My students directly benefit from the resources and I know for sure that without them, they would continue to struggle."
